Founder + Guest Meditation & Mantra Teacher

Born and raised in Rishikesh, Harsh has been immersed in yoga and spirituality since childhood. After graduating from college, he found a calling to help others through yoga. In 2009, he started Vinyasa Yoga Foundation, a nonprofit providing food and clothing to the needy. As a certified yoga teacher himself, his hope is that Vinyasa Yoga School inspires students to experience and share the positivity and purification that yoga provides.

Our teachers are occasionally asked to teach abroad.  During these times it is our priority to maintain Vinyasa Yoga School’s teacher standards in finding a temporary replacement.


"When you meet authentic yogis – not those who merely practice asanas and posting yoga selfies - but those who actually seek to become higher versions of themselves, you know you are in their presence almost immediately. I would like to thank my teachers in Vinyasa Yoga School. You’ve all been such a wonderful inspiration."
