Reejo an E-RYT – 500 Yoga Instructor – Certified by Yoga Alliance USA. Reejo had his first encounter with yoga more than 8 years ago in a place and time when everything related to spirituality was prohibited. During his youth, he practiced weight training exercise. He was introduced to yoga when he went for pilates training where he met some yoginis. To overcome all his weaknesses, heal himself completely and find true liberation, Reejo took the decision to dedicate completely to the yogic practice, leaving his multimedia job in favour of spiritual development.
He studied different yoga styles with well-known teachers of India. On the yogic path he met Swami Premananda in neyar dam, Kerala, India, who introduced him to the traditional teachings and practices of yoga. Then he went to Rishikesh to deepen his practice & learning the secret techniques of Kundalini Yoga (to awaken the kundalini) from yoga guru Rohit at Rishikesh and while he was there a keen seeker, Reejo also enhanced his meditation techniques with a focus on Osho Meditation.
While in ashram in kerala he met some ashtangi yoga practitioners inspired him to take Pattabi Jois Ashtanga Yoga practise. Passionate about ashtanga vinyasa yoga, Reejo found inspiration by practicing alone taking input from books and videos, and soon started to attend various workshops of ashtanga yoga from mysore’s well known teachers. He is forever grateful for having the opportunity to meet and train with Sri Ramesh Shetty.
Already established as a Hatha/Yin/Vinyasa flow yoga teacher Reejo started to teach ashtanga in Goa, India. In every session Reejo aims to focus on the health benefits of yoga while gently guiding his students towards the spiritual aspects of the yoga practice.
