• About

Namaste, thank you for visiting my website.

I am Manoranjan, but people call me Manoj.
Growing up I didn’t expect to discover my passion would be to teach yoga and Ayurveda.

I did many different jobs in the hospitality industry before discovering the science of Ayurveda, the science of life, which teaches us how to live healthy lives that prevent disease.

I have studied all aspects of Ayurveda, from Ayurvedic cooking, to Ayurvedic philosophy and Ayurvedic yoga philosophy with a wide range of masters, including Ayruvedic doctors and swamis.

In 2007 I earned a qualification as Ayurveda (Panchakarma) Therapist. In 2009 I gained my Yoga Teacher Training certificate at the Shivananda Yoga ashram in Kerala. In 2010 I completed a teacher training course at the renowned Shiva Yoga Peeth school in Rishikesh, the yoga capital of the world.

Since 2007 have been teaching Yoga in different ashrams all over India and in Ayurvedic hospitals and resorts in South India. I have also taught therapeutic yoga in Indian schools and villages to help cure local people suffering from lower back pain, rheumatism, stress and various other ailments.

Since 2014 I am collaborating with Rishikul Yoga Shala on their monthly yoga teacher training programs.

Most recently I developed my own yoga program, Chair Yoga, which I deliver to office workers in Bangalore to assist with stress relief and work-related pain management. I focus on breathing and yoga poses that can be done in office chairs.

I am based at beautiful Varkala Beach in Kerala. I offer individual consultations on Ayurvedic and Yogic lifestyle. I also offer tailor-made packages for individuals and retreats. Please contact me to see how I can help you live a healthy lifestyle according to Ayurvedic principles.
