Amit Rehela is a devoted yoga teacher who teaches across India and Nepal. He was born in Dharamshala, the spiritual center of the Himalayas that the Dalai Lama calls home. Over time, interacting with the many yogis who travel to Dharamshala every year inspired Amit and led him to explore yoga sadhana.
In 2014, Amit spent a year in an ashram, where he immersed himself in meditation, pranayama, and Hatha, bhakti, and karma yoga. During that time, Yogi Shivam, his teacher, taught Amit the essence of yoga and meditation. There was an authenticity in Yogi Shivam’s teaching that inspired Amit to embed yogic practices in his everyday life. This period became the foundation of Amit’s spiritual journey.
In the years that followed, Amit did various yoga teacher trainings in India, which provided 200-Hour and 300-Hour certifications and exposed him to various styles and therapeutic techniques. His understanding of asana and anatomy, and how different people experience them, grew continually over time.
Eventually, Amit started assisting his teachers and leading his own classes in teacher trainings in Dharamshala. His teaching expanded over time, and he began to offer classes, workshops, and retreats in Goa. In 2017, Amit became the lead trainer at Chinmay Yoga, which reached new heights in global success under his leadership, and has taught in Siddhi Yoga trainings since 2019.
