The Hungarian born physicist started imitating yoga postures from a Hatha yoga book at an early age however it was not until age 20 that he became captivated. 4 years later he initiated studies directly with his master Swami Maheshwarananda. In 2007 he became a swami in the Kumbha Mela, India. Channel 31 aired his restorative classes to Melbourne’s community for 5 years.

 

He has been teaching yoga to all ages for over 20 years keeping students fit & flexible and more importantly encouraging them to venture beyond the boundaries of the intellect diving into the depth of consciousness.

 

He is a Yoga Australia certified senior teacher qualified in Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Pilates offering regular classes, workshops, satsangs & retreats. He brings life and meaning to his teaching of Yoga and is a tremendous inspiration to all.

Kaori

Kaori, a mother of 2, grew up in a town near Nagoya, Japan. She earned her law degree in Melbourne, and currently works as an in-house lawyer.

She has explored the Japanese and the Australian outdoor extensively, including climbing Mt Fuji, scuba-diving in the Great Barrier Reef, white water rafting, skydiving and camping.

With her latest passion in yoga and meditation she is thrilled to be a part of this trip. Being an accredited interpreter, we are fortunate to have her on board as a native speaking guide to assist everything out -there and beyond. She will make sure nothing gets "lost in translation", and help making your retreat truly Japan-easy.
