Our Teachers


Utkarsh Sanjanwala

Utkarsh is a direct disciple of Swami Vidyanand and has a wide range of expertise in the subject. In 2015, he was the first to bring Transformational Yoga®  to New Zealand. Having taught people from across the globe and worked with Corporates, Armed Forces, Schools, Celebrities and trained several Yoga & Meditation Teachers across the world, his simple and practical way of explaining and relating the practices in a modern and contemporary context will enable and empower you to make a genuine difference in your state of mind and expand your consciousness.


With several years of experience in Transformational Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Pranayama & Meditation, Utkarsh has trained in the Traditional Guru shishya parampara (direct Master to Disciple teaching), having first studied for several years in the Bihar Tradition (Satyananada) before he finally met his Guru, Swami Vidyanand, under whose guidance he is exploring and sharing the science of Yoga.

Though primarily a Yoga Teacher & Therapist, he is also a painter, photographer, graphic designer, writer and a musician, whose life got transformed when he got introduced to Yoga. In 2008, he began to explore Traditional Yoga. Soon after, he quit his corporate job to fully explore yoga as a subject as well as a spiritual path and way of living.  He is now an established and experienced Yoga Master & Therapist, channelizing his energy towards exploring and sharing this beautiful ancient science with people from across globe.
