Hari, Swami Yog Kulwant Ji, Dr. Shri, Girish ji

Hari Kishan

He had envisioned of opening up of a yoga school that presents yoga in its true essence combined with the traditional detoxification science of Naturopathy. A large part of Hari Ji’s childhood was spent in serving and taking care of hundreds of sages and sadhus. Being a national level player in his youth, yoga was an essential part of his routine. However, he realized that in present times, the bodies of most people are full of emotional and other kinds of garbage, which hinders one’s growth. This led him to develop “Emotional Blockage” treatments as well as using Naturopathy detoxification.

Swami Yog Kulwant Ji

Swami Yog Kulwant Ji is one of the founders of Alakh Yog School. At a very young age, he left his home to seek inner bliss. He studied under many masters, who taught and encouraged him to meditate and complete his studies. Being a seeker, he was always interested in studying the subject of Philosophy, on which he has also done his PhD. After completing his education, he went deep into meditation and stayed in silence for many years. At present, he stays in silence for most of his time in Upper Himalayas and guides students and seekers in “Silent Retreats”.

Dr. Shri Yogi Chandrakant

Dr. Shri Yogi Chandrakant, is one of the lead yoga teachers at Alakh Yoga, born in a Brahmin family in an ancient village named Haripurkalan situated at the confluence of the seven Ganges. At the age of 8, he was enrolled in a Sanskrit School where learned about Yoga, Astrology, and Sanskrit as a language. In 2010, he was honored to give sessions during the ‘khumb Mela’ for International Yog Vedant Seva Kalyan Samiti (Shandilya Yogpeeth, Haridwar) where more than 2000 seekers gathered to acknowledge his teachings. His teachings are more refined as he mastered himself in Yogasana, Pranayam etc.

Girish Ji

One would rarely come across someone as humble and pleasant as Girish Ji. Even though he completed graduation in computer science and worked at Infosys (Leading Indian IT company) for about 3 years, he left all of it in his search for truth. He did Sadhana (meditation) at many places like South India, Nepal, Manali etc. A 10 day Vipassana Meditation in Pune changed his life forever. He was always interested in subjects like Anatomy and physiology, which pushed him to go for further studies. He has a degree of N.D.(Doctor of Naturopathy) and Y.D.(Doctor of Yoga).
