About The Teacher

Om is from a family whose lineage is connected to one of the great saints of Bhakti Movement of the middle ages named Sri Ramananda, who was the guru of the great mystique-poet Saint Kabir Das. After studying engineering for few years, he knew that his calling in life was not a career in the world of technology, but rather the quest of finding God, and this lead him to his Guru Sri Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati of Munger. He stayed in ashram for more than three years training under his Guru. During his time in the Ashram he was involved in work related to conducting various Tantric rituals like Puja, Havan (fire ceremony), Anushthanas, Chanting of Mantras and specific practices related to the Tantra. He was also involved in teaching Asana, Pranayama and other practices related to Yoga to the participants of the Yoga Courses being conducted at the ashram during his time there. At SWAN Yoga Retreat Goa, he is responsible for the Tantric and Vedic rituals conducted here on a regular basis besides teaching and conducting the special yoga retreats we organize from time to time. His simple yet very passionate way of talking is loved by one and all. A lot can be said about him, but to make it short: he is OM.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
