Swami Atmajnananda Giri...

Yoga Teacher in India
Born in Kerala, Swami Atmajnananda Giri had an urge to live with nature since a very early age. This natural urge led him to practice Naturopathy for over 3 years and he also undertook a study of Homeopathy and obtained a Diploma for the same. This only intensified his urge and he traveled for 4 years as a sanyasa mendicant undertaking study and trying to understand the deeper meaning of life.

His travels led him to study Yoga and Vedanta. Through his study he met his Guru Swami Sudhi Chaitanya who had a profound impact upon him. The urge of Sanyasa became so strong that he left home to travel first to Varanasi and then to the Himalayas to be among the great seers. This experience gave him the purpose of life which was to feel the totality of the Self.
He has now dedicated his whole life to see the concept of nature village succeed and flourish and lives simply at Rishikesh.

Ajarya Yoga Academy is fortunate to tap his immense knowledge of Vedanta and Bhagwad Gita for the benefit of our students.

  • Thank you for a great time and a great education. I really felt taken care of through the whole program, everything from first contact to accommodation to teaching, to free time (such as visiting sights, going to the doctor and getting a surprise party for my birthday) really was well arranged and high quality.
