Yogi Vimal

About The Teacher

Born and raised in Rishikesh, Vimal’s journey as a yogi began years ago with his studies at the Bihar School of Yoga - founded by Swami Satyananda Saraswati - and continued at the Sivananda Vedanda Academy in Rishikesh. Following his Guruji’s advice and as part of his sadhana (spiritual practice) Vimal lived alone for a year in a cave on the banks of the Ganga. Just a cloth to cover him, he bathed in and drank the sacred water from the river, eating only a potato brought to him every day. This unique life’s transforming experience has permitted him to deeply understand the real meaning of living a yogic lifestyle. For the past 10 years Vimal has been teaching yoga and meditation in India and other parts of Asia to improve one’s physical health as well as one’s spiritual life. He now shares his experience through daily classes, workshops, and retreats in Rishikesh and abroad. His energetic yet approachable teachings reflect a genuine understanding of the classical path of yoga with a modern outlook. His authentic classes are spiritually charged with life changing teachings; these can be incorporated into daily routines to ultimately live a more joyful and purposeful life.

Love who and what you are and what you do. Laugh at yourself and at life, and nothing can touch you. It’s all temporary anyway. Next lifetime you will do it differently anyway, so why not do it differently right now? Louis Hay

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan

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.
