Since Yogini Gopika was a young girl she was in love with the deep beauty and peace found in nature. For her life was always full of magic and mystery. Upon getting her first real job after college, she can remember thinking with a feeling of longing for something greater that here must be more to life than this. Upon discovering yoga, everything transformed and she made a swift exit from mainstream society in search of life’s true meaning. After teaching yoga in New York City for about a year she journeyed to India.
Prakash is the founder of Shanti Yoga Ashram, has been dedicated to yoga since childhood. He studied at the Bihar School of Yoga where he received initiation from Swami Niranjanananda. For the past 10 years, he has continued to deepen his knowledge in Nepal with Swami Shivalingam, Tantra Yoga Master. For the past 18 years, he has been fully immersed in teaching yoga both at home and abroad. He has circled the globe introducing the deeper aspect of yoga practice.
Rama is the co-founder of Shanti Yoga Ashram and has been teaching yoga for 14 years. She studied at Bihar School of Yoga in India. In Nepal, she practiced under the guidance of Swami Shivalingam and Guru Yogi Prakash. Her teaching style is meditative and precise, encouraging students to fully blossom in their practice. She is also a certified naturopathic doctor and has taught in hospitals and schools in the Kathmandu region. The ashram would not be where it is today without her dedicated energy over the years.
Meera has always been sensitive to subtle matter and keen on the spiritual side of human nature. Willing to expand her awareness, she has been exploring Asia, studying Eastern philosophy, religion, traditions of different nations and improving her yoga and meditation techniques. She shares that obtained experience with her students during each yoga class, making it enjoyable and beneficial for both the body and soul. Meera emphasizes the importance of the Bhakti path and offers a personal approach to every person, giving advice for increasing divine qualities.

I enjoyed the teaching, classes and friendliness of the Yogi and his family, as well as the other students. It was a great place to learn and I plan to return for teachers training next year.

After only a few days, I can already feel the positive rewards of the teachings and practice. There is a wonderful atmosphere of peace here. I would highly recommend Yogi Prakash as a teacher; his family has been a delight to be around.

After a week here in the ashram, I really feel healthier, both physically and mentally. Now, I have the tools that I need and a new perspective on spirituality, for which I am grateful.
