Meditation in Motion
USA / India
Amit has a zest for living life with joy, love, and wonder. Born into a family where bhakti yoga is a daily ritual, yoga has always been a strong influence in his life. After sustaining injuries from a collision with a motorcycle, he resorted to yogic practice as a natural path to recovery and a means to strengthen his mind, focus and awareness. The therapeutic benefits and healing power of yoga inspired him to leave his corporate career in NYC and pursue advanced training in Ashtanga, Hatha, Iyengar and Pranayama in Rishikesh, India. His passion is to share his knowledge and help others discover clarity, warmth and power within themselves.
His classes are kind, fun and transformational as he creates an environment for self-healing to happen. Amit has studied various modalities of yoga and focuses his personal practice on kriya yoga and meditation, as taught by Swami Satyananda Saraswati. He is a Yoga Alliance RYT-500 certified instructor and a Reiki Grand Master.
Teaching at the Yoga Barn since 2018, Amit has a wonderful ability to pass down Yogic wisdom to his students in ways that are tangible to modern times.
