Amit has a zest for living life with joy, love, and wonder. Born into a family where bhakti yoga is a daily ritual, yoga has always been a strong influence in his life. After sustaining injuries from a collision with a motorcycle, he resorted to yogic practice as a natural path to recovery and a means to strengthen his mind, focus and awareness. The therapeutic benefits and healing power of yoga inspired him to leave his corporate career in NYC and pursue advanced training in Ashtanga, Hatha, Iyengar and Pranayama in Rishikesh, India. Amit has studied various modalities of yoga and focuses his personal practice on kriya yoga and meditation, as taught by Swami Satyananda Saraswati. He is a Yoga Alliance RYT-500 certified instructor and a Reiki Grand Master.
