Yoga

The aim of Yogic exercise is to harmoniously connect body, spirit and emotions and to imbue them with new energy.

Suresh Kumar

Suresh Kumar teaches Hatha Yoga with easy and and clear exercises in a simple and direct English. He has a gentle yet profound way of passing on his knowledge and understanding of yoga. Teachings as comprehensive and profound as his are rare in Europe.

Suresh grew up in India in the tradition of yoga, following his family custom. For many dedicated years he studied with Indian masters and has been initiated into classical yoga and its way of life, as it has been practised over the centuries. Traditionally a yoga disciple is taken in by a master and when he is deemed ready, is sent on to another Guru. Because of this, Suresh was able to practice with masters who are only available to Indian students.During his years of study he lived in different ashrams and taught all over India.

In Switzerland, Suresh continues as a yoga teacher and traditional therapist.
