Yogi Vishvketu (Vishva-ji) has studied and practiced Hatha and Raja yoga and the Vedic healing arts in northern India since childhood. He went on to attain a Bachelor’s degree from a renowned Sports College with a specialization in yoga and its use in optimizing athletic performance, followed an M.A. and Ph.D. in Yoga Philosophy. After living as the resident teacher for several yeas at Yoga Niketan Ashram, he moved to Canada in 2001, and began to teach internationally, bringing a passion for yoga and his fun-loving nature to the classes.
In October 2003 he released a DVD, Moving into Bliss with Yoga, a harmonious and meditative flow or asana and pranayama set to classical Indian music. He produced in 2009, Anando-ham, a CD of niirguna mantras from classical Indian texts. Vishva-ji has been a much-loved teacher and demonstrator at the Yoga Show and Conference in Toronto since its inception in 2003. He also teaches at international yoga conferences in Hong Kong and India.
Vishva-ji is committed to offering holistic yoga workshops internationally, incorporating diverse aspects of the practice: asana, pranayama, cleansing kriyas, Ayurveda and Vedic chanting, as well as to offering Yoga Alliance registered 200- and 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) programs in Canada and in Rishikesh (India). He calls this holistic style of teaching Akhanda Yoga, meaning whole and indivisible. It is in this spirit that in January 2007, he and his wife, Chetana Panwar, founded Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram in Rishikesh (India) where they live and teach six months of the year.
