A testimonial from one of Sonam’s many students.

Before arriving to Darjeeling my knowledge of Yoga was extremely limited so I sought an authentic place to acquire ancient knowledge and found it at Himalayan Yoga Bliss’ Yoga teacher training program. The first thing I learned was that Yoga was not in fact a series of physical postures as I had learned in the West, but a profound philosophy for living a blissful life. Yoga is a powerful tool to overcome sorrow. It is the Science of the Soul.
Words will forever fail to express how much gratitude, love, and respect I have for Sonam Ji the Guru and founder of the studio. She and all of the amazing teachers truly walk the path of light. It was an honor to be taught by them.
If you seek a profound life-altering experience, regardless of whether you want to teach Yoga or simply discover more about yourself, I assure you, look no further and book your reservation for Himalayan Yoga Bliss YTT. Sonam Ji is a true Guru who shines like the sun at midday. She is a master of the art of Yoga, but too humble to admit so I will speak for her. Her knowledge of this Universe is nothing short of incredible. She is a rare soul. Good luck on your journey. Namaste. ॐ”  Ricardo Vargas, TTC June 2017

Sonam Dukpa

Sonam is the Founder and Director of Himalayan Yoga Bliss. Her aim is to make Yoga teacher training reachable to every aspiring seeker of Yoga and to guide students from various backgrounds and cultures from all around the world to experience the mystical powers of the Himalayas and the inspiration it has bestowed upon Yogis for thousands of years. So she started Yoga Teacher Training In India through Himalayan Yoga Bliss.

She is a certified eRYT 1000 hours Yoga Alliance Teacher with an aim to connect the eastern philosophies of Yoga to the contemporary west and has trained over 200 Yoga instructors who are now teaching in some prestigious institutions worldwide. However her understanding of Yoga does not limit to certification in a paper. She was born in a devout spiritual Buddhist yogic family and from an early age understood and learnt the concepts of Mantra chanting, Yoga philosophy, the art of Vipasana, Japa meditation and various other roots of core Buddhist philosophy from her Grandmother, who herself was a disciplined Yoga practitioner from the lineages of Tibetan monks.

She has been travelling and teaching around the globe the core understanding of Yoga in her various trainings and workshops. Her teachings are not limited to the structural method of traditions but designed to come out of the structure and pattern to understand the basics of a human behaviour and its relationship with spirituality. Her philosophy classes are tailored to reach Vedanta in the most simplistic manner to person of any age and background. She teaches that every relaxed and comfortable pose is a Yoga pose and that a true Yogi should practise Asanas or the physical practises of Yoga to be able to sit for meditation and experience the inner tranquility and that true space of Awareness of simply being. Acceptance of our physical limitations as a challenge to keep the practise disciplined is the base teaching of her traditional and contemporary styles of Asanas.

Being a pure Bhakti Yogini at heart, her approach to the Yogic philosophy starts from the core of her inner self. She says that to understand the higher consciousness or the divine, it is very important to the know the real inner self. Only through the journey of heart one can enter the gateway of Cosmic love, this union known as Yoga. To experience this it is a must to transcend our layers of logic and ego and eventually conquer the limitations created by our Mind. She believes that the “Mastery of mind” indeed is the goal of Yoga and this should be the core practise of every Yoga Teacher. There is no higher goal than this.

Om Tat sat.

Rakesh

Rakesh is a natural orator and awarded Acharya of Yoga. He started practicing Yoga from a very early age, and was further drawn to the practice thereafter. After visiting many ashrams learning and teaching under various Gurus, Yoga became his only way of life. He is a teacher who presents the intricate yoga philosophy and its practice in a simple, down to earth and humorous manner. His lectures are based on the four classical paths of yoga as well as his own spiritual experiences and understanding of the yogic path. His idealogy is rooted under the non dual aspect of reality, in which the human experiences of Separation and Duality are seen as a dance (or play) of cosmic consciousness in which everything is sacred, has absolute worth and is an end in itself.

In his classes he gives his original analysis and views on the writings of various spiritual traditions, mystics and philosophers from around the world. For Rakesh, the greatest human gifts are love and freedom. On the basis of this, he teaches yoga where love and freedom are of the highest value and the utmost individual spiritual growth being the number one priority. His Asana classes are designed to use our physical body as a vehicle to eventually control and conquer our mind.

Tenzing

Brother of Sonam, born and raised in the Himalayas, is a yogic practionair of Shivananda Hatta Flow. His fascination and love with nature makes his teachings towards the yogic path very simple and yet very divine on its aspect. Having taught the mantras of spritiuality from a young age, he portrays his understandings in a very subtle and honest manner. The closeness he owns from the surrounding of nature makes him very adventurous to outdoor activities like trekking, cycling, mountain climbing etc. A firm believer and a devote of Shiva, his aspirations are derived from it. His free will to learn and understand the yogic path and dwell with it has its own uniqueness.
