About Sudhir Rishi

Sudhir Rishi is the Director of Teacher Trainings at Sthira Yoga. He has been involved in the fields of yoga, meditation, philosophy and Ayurveda for the past 25 years. He lived as a monk for eight years, dedicating himself to intense meditation practices. In the last 7 years, he taught in more than 100 groups of TTC 200 and 25 groups of TTC 300 in addition to meditation courses, workshops and silent retreats in India and Europe. He is a ERYT-500 with more than 30,000 hours of teaching experience.

He studied Mechanical Engineering, achieved a Master of Technology award in Quality and Reliability and worked as a Total Quality Manager in a leading automobile company in India. At age 28, sudden death of his mother and inspired by Buddha and other spiritual masters, he left his highly paid job, and joined the Ramakrishna Mission as a Brahmachari (celibate monk).

His quest took him to the Himalayas. Later, he joined the Swami Dayananda Ashram, in Rishikesh and studied Sanskrit, Vedic Chanting and Commentaries on scriptures of Advaita Vedanta. He learnt yoga from the Balananda Brahmachari tradition and Bihar School of Yoga and did his teacher training in Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore. He also learnt and practiced TM of Maharshi Mahesh Yogi, Vipassana, Osho’s techniques and J Krishnamurthy’s teachings.

During the last 18 years he has made his home near Sri Ramana Maharshi Ashram, in South India, combining his time in the Ashram with the teaching Yoga. For Sudhir, philosophy is not a theoretical pursuit but a lifestyle. For him, philosophy reveals higher truths which need to be contemplated, verified, applied and assimilated. He has had many transformative spiritual experiences and he shares his personal experiences with his students.

He is passionate to share his wisdom and insights. He believes, and it has been his own experience, that joy is the nature of oneself, and it has no connection to anything whatsoever, and this fact can be discovered by others as well! His teachings help his students to know themselves better and deeper. He communicates complicated concepts in a simple way.
