Sudan Bhetuwal 

Your own action should inspire you, nobody should be applauding you to do the best of yourself,” says Sudan

Yogi Rajkumar:

Raj Kumar’s practice is immersed in connecting to the energetic self via the use of both pranayama and meditation, using the physical body as a tool or metaphor for something deeper. His self-practice is echoed in his teachings defining a unique style that is his own. With a lineage of multiple styles of yoga, combined with enthusiasm for Eastern philosophy gives Raj Kumar a calming aura to be around.

In the quest for happiness, Raj Kumar decided to try the yoga path (2008), realizing very quickly that ‘Yoga provides an efficient and graceful way to navigate life by keeping you connected to the life force “Prana” and to the inner fire in any situation. Now Raj Kumar’s passion is to share the power of yoga and meditation and how it can be unleashed within us, helping us live a healthier, fuller, and more balanced life. He has been a Singing Bowl Trainer since 2018. He highly practices Nada Yoga and explores the different dimensions of Yoga through his daily practice.
