What started out as an alternative therapy to regain health turned out into a way of life for Yogi Himanshu. Starting out as a sportsperson, he got introduced to Yoga while facing a health condition and it was the first step towards his life-long commitment to the ancient Indian practice.
With every step, as he delved deep into the principles of Yoga as developed and popularized by the great yogis, monks and saints over thousands of years, an intense inner transformation started. It seemed like divine inspiration guided him to achieve each of his milestones in a span of just 5-6 years of his yogic life. Still a simple man, Yogi Himanshu with his magnetic pull attracts students from all over the globe who get benefitted by his deep understanding of the discipline.
Over the years, Yogi Himanshu has been mentoring budding yoga teachers and instructors in the holy city of Rishikesh. It has been the most satisfying journey for him understanding the connection of body, mind and soul.
SPREADING THE KNOWLEDGE OF YOGA ACROSS THE GLOBE
The founder of Himalayan Yoga Association and Bali Yoga School, Yogi Himanshu along with his team runs yoga courses and yoga retreats across the world – India, Bali, Costa Rica, Germany, Thailand and Cambodia.

THE UNCONVENTIONAL YOGA GURU
An unconventional Yoga guru, and one of the youngest yoga teachers in the world, Yogi Himanshu loves to experiment with various techniques of yoga and meditation and also introduces his students to Indian Classical Music through kirtan nights and mantra chanting. Besides yoga teaching, he loves to play Harmonium and Dholak. He teaches Meditation, yoga philosophy, Teachings of Maharishi Patanjali’s yoga sutras and that of Bhagavad Gita. He believes in teaching aspects of Yoga in an interesting and practical way so that it is easy to implement them in life.
OBSERVER OF THE INNER VOICE
In a mind that is often dominated by unending chatter and thoughts, Yogi Himanshu discovered his inner voice and chose the way of life that suited him. Apart from being the expert of his subject matter and Masters in Indian & Western Philosophy, his real learning came from observing life as it unfolded before him, the practical aspects of it, rather than just the theory.
Yogi Himanshu considers nature as his best companion and loves to do farming, running, spending time in the solitude of nature and the company of people.
A SIMPLE MAN, A PEOPLE’S PERSON
He is a people’s person and loves being of any use to them even outside his field of yoga in whatever way possible. He cherishes his own company all the same and enjoys being in silence and observing the world. Living a simple life, accepting things as they are, and appreciating the beauty of the present moment has made him closer to his inner being, away from the thought chatter.
YOGI HIMANSHU’S LIFE PHILOSOPHY
This young Yogi is not deterred by fears that block the progress of the human soul and advises people to do the same. His advice to people: “Live your dreams because life is short but remember that life is not perfect but by accepting it as it is, you make your living perfect. Yoga helps to put things in perspective and makes you choose joy over worldly things that are making you miserable. It makes you understand your power, strengths and capabilities as it brings you closer to yourself.”
