In April 2017 I was very fortunate to have won a yoga trip of a lifetime, where I had the privilege to be taught by the top yoga master Shambhu Kumar. It is with great delight that I now have the opportunity to welcome him to my homeland and introduce him to yoga enthusiasts over here.
For his first time touring outside India, yoga master Shambhu Kumar will travel to Northern Ireland to teach the traditional approach to yoga, which is often missing in many yoga practices. Many yoga students are not getting the benefit of the essence of yoga, which should bring a balance and improvement in human nature. This goes beyond the physical, offering a means to still the body, liberate the energy (Prana), silence the senses, explore the mind and expand the consciousness.
It is time to dive a little deeper. Sincere yoga aspirants who wish to make progress towards harmony, balance and equanimity in their life will find that a balanced and harmonious personality has the capability to conquer negativity and enhance positivity.
Shri Shambhu, a Yoga Teacher and founder of YogamFit – the holistic yoga centre, has a very deep understanding of the Bihar School of Yoga and Satyanada Yoga traditions. He started his yoga journey in 2003 as a seeker and later on as a postgraduate student of Applied Yogic Science in Bihar Yoga Bharti (the World’s first University of Yoga). In 2015, he was appointed the Manager of Yoga for the world-leading Ananda Spa – in the Himalayas. He played a vital role in redeveloping the yoga brand offered at Ananda.
Yoga is very much part of his life due to his native place of Munger and continuous interaction with Yogashram. He has been teaching yoga professionally since 2005 and has conducted extensive workshops for several leading Indian corporate organizations such as IIM Lucknow, LIC, Indian Railways, Service Tax Dept., Panjab National Bank, Vodafone, Sahara India, Yash air and many more top businesses in Lucknow, Ujjain, Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, etc.
Currently settled in Lucknow and spreading the knowledge of Yoga throughout India, he has redefined yoga by continuous self-development, gaining experience during the course of time.
Under the guidance of Swami Niranjananand Saraswati, Shri Shambhu specializes in
• Hatha Yoga,
• Asana (yoga postures)
• Pranayama (breathing techniques),
• Ashtanga/Raj Yoga,
• Karma Yoga,
• Kundalini Yoga,
• Dhyaan (meditation).
His areas of expertise also include Stress Management, Counselling, Kids Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga and Therapeutic Yoga. Besides all this, he also specialises in Corporate Workshops & Training and Staff Counselling.
