Dr. Sushil Yogi

(Patanjali Ashtanga Yoga, Traditional Hatha Yoga, Pranayama-Meditation Teacher)
Dr. Sushil Yogi
 is a highly experienced and educated yoga practitioner who loves to share his knowledge with others. He is the founder and Lead Trainer of Chandra Yoga International. A native of India, Dr. Sushil was born and raised in Haridwar, along with the banks of the sacred Ganges River. Yoga has been a part of his life from a very young age, as it was studied in his very traditional primary education of Gurukulam. Gurukulum (children’s school) is based on an Indian tradition of education which puts emphasis on ancient scriptures such as the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Geeta and Yoga Sutra, as well as Sanskrit Literature. Every day, the young students are taught to meditate, practice yoga, and participate in traditional fire ceremonies (Yagya). While other peers decided to go on to pursue other career paths, Dr. Sushil’s love of yoga persisted, and he continued on with his Yogic Studies at the University level.

Dr. Sushil’s credentials include a Ph.D. (Doctorate) in yoga philosophy, 2 year Master’s Degree in Human Consciousness and Yoga Science (M.Sc.), a one year Post Graduate Diploma in Yoga, a one year Diploma in Vedic Karmkand (Vedic rituals) and a 3 year Bachelor Degree in Science from Gurukul Kangri University, in Haridwar, India.Additionally, he joined many national and international seminars, conferences and published 2 research books.

Learning the traditional art of yoga and meditation with great Himalayan masters such as Swami Ramdevji, Swami Ved Bharti Ji, Dr. Ishwar Bhardwaj Ji, Dr. Surakshit Goswamiji and other western 

teachers inspired Dr. Sushil to continue to spread the joy of yoga to others. He began teaching yoga in 2003 to private clients. In 2006, he began facilitating yoga retreats and workshops in the USA, UK, Europe, Asia, and Japan. After returning to India in 2013, he felt the need to bring his knowledge to the many aspiring spiritual seekers who visit India each year and began the yoga teacher training program.

Students appreciate his unique style of yoga asana teaching, which is filled with uplifting energy, fusing yogic and modern science knowledge with his genuine loving nature and sense of humor. Dr. Sushil’s favorite subject to teach is Meditation and Pranayama, and he spends time outside of classes discussing the practice of meditation with students interested in learning more about it. His teaching blends the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali with Chakra-based philosophy, describing how we can eliminate suffering in our lives and cope with the human condition. His unique teaching style brings the ancient practices of yoga into a modern perspective, providing techniques for students to practice traditional Indian yoga in a way that is applicable to their lives today.

Siddhartha Veer

(Philosophy Teacher)
Siddhartha Veer, born in a traditional Indian family, grew up around the temples and ashrams of great sage Neem Karoli Baba. These ashram visits and wandering in Himalayan foothills gave him the deep spiritual understanding of the ancient Vedic wisdom.

As a result of his past and present life Samskaras, he had many opportunities to meet masters in the Yogic and the Vedantic traditions and still continues to. Among these masters whom he had met, M.M Swami Veda Bharati has caught his attention. Swami Veda was a great Vedic Scholar of this century. Siddhartha Veer has lived in his presence for some years studying Yoga, Vedanta and practicing many methods of meditation. His interest grew deeper in the art of Yoga and meditation which lead him to take Deeksha(initiation) from Swami Veda Bharati and live in Rishikesh by Mother Ganga to further Self-Realisation.

Siddhartha Veer comes from a tourism background. Rishikesh being the capital of Yoga has inspired him to teach Yoga Philosophy, meditation, Pranayama and meditative chants. Through his intuitive insight and style of teaching, he takes his students on a different level of understanding which shows his dedication towards Yoga. As his master has said to many- “The world has a misery, the world has suffered. Do what you can, to reduce the pain. Do what you can, to soothe their minds.”
