Rohit is a kind and gentle soul, as well as a joyful and patient teacher. He is abundantly knowledgeable regarding Yoga and Kundalini, yet humble and gracious. His classes focused first on theory, to provide a basis of understanding, and then moved towards practice, where students could apply said knowledge and experience true learning. He offered pearls of wisdom from his own experience while respecting the unique journey and sagacity of others. Always poised, but never overly-stoic, his smile radiates pure warmth and his whole-hearted laughter filled the class with utter bliss. Learning from him was not just educational. It was spiritual. He touched the minds and hearts of each and every one of us. Now that the training has ended, he continues to send reading material and food for thought, investing in the continued growth and well-being of his students. I shall be forever grateful for the opportunity to laugh, learn, and grow with Rohit. Hari Om.
Rohit’s Asana and Pranayama teaching style is conscientious, detail-oriented, calm and careful. Rather than trying to achieve impressive postures with his students, his focus is on exploring each pose for the health benefit and bodily awareness it brings. But his knowledge and guidance reached far beyond the regular class hours. Rohit would often speak passionately about Yoga philosophy as well as personal experiences pertaining to the effects of Yoga on physical and mental health.
Rohit lives by his own discipline, and this becomes abundantly clear when you meet him, converse, and receive his teachings. He is honest, kind and supportive. He cares deeply about others’ well-being, and lives by example through his own health routine, which he is very open about. Apart from being a serious practitioner of Yoga, Rohit is also humorous and a romantic by nature.
Rohit Kumar spoke many times about wanting to meet with people from around the world to share the knowledge and thoughts on an all-rounded personal health care based in Yoga. I hope that he gets to achieve this dream, and wish him all the best in his pursuits. God bless you Rohit.
As a teacher myself, it was easy to see the passion he had for teaching and the genuine care he had for his students. His words touched my heart on many occasions and I could tell that he taught from his personal experience as well as his education not just concepts he learned from a book. All the questions we asked, he was able to answer in a way that spoke to his wisdom of Yoga and its vast levels of depth. Aside from his experience I noticed that he was a favorite among all the students in our class because he taught with a sense of humor, deep intellect and a joyfulness that was infectious. We couldn’t help but laugh and be totally engaged during while he was teaching. It was easy to see that he had genuine love for the topics he was talking about and he cared about us as students because he continued to teach us even after the program was over.
He would send us follow-up emails with more detailed explanations about the topics we covered. He would ask us if we had any extra questions or were confused about what we learned or the extra information he provided us. He even helped us with setting up a routine for our personal practice after we returned home. On several occasions, he even Skyped with me to check up on how my practice was coming along after trying it for a few weeks after the course had ended.
I highly recommend him as a teacher and guide in the path of Yoga. There are many people who teach because they want money or followers but Rohit teaches because it was what he was called to do. This path of Yoga was what he was called to do. And anyone who has the honor of crossing his path, will be a better person and more knowledgeable after meeting him because he wants nothing more than for others to understand the power of the Yogic lifestyle and how it can benefit their lives.

Rohit has the art to explain abstract philosophical theories in practical, everyday life examples. By being able to capture the students attention with visuals, power-point and real life stories, Rohit’s theory class is where I learnt the most and retained the most information. Additionally, besides Rohit’s capability in keeping a well- structured and engaging class, Rohit is a wonderful person on a human level. His patience, kindness, sense of humour and ability to think outside of the box gives this extra space of friendliness and approachability. Outside of the class, Rohit is always available for a chat, to listen to your opinion and provide his immense knowledge. He is able to provide you with all the information you require so that can make their own best decision. Rather than offering straight away a solution, Rohit, has a great sense of his own what makes him a great teacher. He provides you with the tools where the student uses his own mind and awareness. It was an amazing 3 weeks time with him. If you have the opportunity to attend one of Rohit’s classes, you will walk into the session with one question and walked out with many other questions to which you have the tools to continue onto your journey of awakening. Many thanks Rohit,
I am Michael Pittiglio from the U.K. I met Rohit on a Kundalini teacher training program in Rishikesh. Rohit was the kundalini practical and theory teacher. With 100% honesty, I can say he was one if not the most humble and caring man I met in India on my travels. His teachings for me resonated at such a level helping me gain a deep understanding of the practice I had been carrying out prior to visit India, my reason for travelling there in the first place. He delivered this knowledge in a patient and understandable way making sense of some of the experiences I was struggling to comprehend. He always went the extra mile helping me with my practice in a very traditional way which was exactly what I wanted from my trip. I will take his lessons with me always and continue to dedicate my time to my practice in the way he dedicated his to the teaching always with total selflessness! I feel truly blessed to have met him and returning to India would always take the time to try and further my study of this beautiful ancient knowledge in any way I can! With total gratitude, my heart goes out to him!
After this meditation class, he kinda took me under his wings and became a really important teacher to me. We spent a lot of time together. He showed me around town, showed me places that was important to him and those places also became important to me.
I clearly remember one evening, we were sitting by the river, watching the sun go down. I had a lot of things going on in my mind, so many questions and so many worries. Rohit was being all patient with me, helping me clear my mind in his own beautiful way and when we left I was all good and in a perfect state.
Rohit taught me many things with his great knowledge and his beautiful ways of seeing and describing life. He taught me to see how truly beautiful everything around us is. He inspired me to keep practicing yoga and the importance of having it in my life forever. He made me slow down so I could listen, listen to the world and listen to myself. And now everything seems clearer.
I feel such a deep connection with Rohit and I am sure we have known each other for many lives. For now we communicate through water until we see each other again very soon. May he live long!
God bless you Rohit!

I always remember the day I met Rohit’s eyes for the first time. It was in the Ayurveda Yoga villa in Kerala in July 2014. It felt like we already knew each other long before we met. I surrendered in deep trust. I am practicing Yoga for almost 40 years, but following yoga classes with Rohit felt so different, much deeper, much purer but also familiar. For a Western woman, Yoga classes are really heavy and the intensity is overwhelming. For me Rohit’s classes were Yoga as it should be, back to the essence! After each Yoga class with Rohit, I felt different more free in body and mind, sometimes with painful muscles because of my enthusiasm.Yoga with Rohit is going further than the material world. It is meeting the universe, the unknown becoming less unknown. “Yoga is more than doing Asanas and Meditation. Yoga is changing your way of life, it is returning to your inner most being and becoming satisfied and free.” This is what in short I could receive from the bulk of what flowed from Rohit and his presence.
I met Rohit in 2014 in Kerala during a Pancha karma treatment. Rohit gave Yoga lessons 3 times a day. One day we sat and had chat together. I asked him what Yoga meant for him. His answer left me wonder-struck. Yoga meant so much love he said, unbelievable without boundaries. And while sitting there I felt and saw the sincerity, deep love and truth in him. From that moment, I took every moment to follow as much Yoga lessons by him as was possible in between the Pancha karma treatments. Weak or full of energy I was drawn to follow Rohit’s Yoga lessons. His lessons were always connected with this deep love, with great knowledge about the asanas and sitting there we all were part of the ancient Yoga roots and Rohit’s own experience and wisdom. What Rohit did was giving Yoga lessons which were always a challenge, but with respect to one’s limits. Always following and listening what every person could do at the moment. Rohit encouraged every one and helped everyone. His great faith in the healing benefits of Yoga became real for many people. For me doing Yoga these weeks was the beginning of stretching all my “channels” in body, mind and heart. From the day I was in Kerala till now I do Yoga every day. Rohit has been my first and greatest inspiration for this journey.
I am Estaben from Spain. I met Rohit in the Ashram of Rikhiapeeth in Feb, 2014 while we were taking part of the Paramahansa Satyananda Yoga Teacher Training Course. In this wonderful place, I had the opportunity to share experiences, emotions and knowledge with him. It was so nice to do Karma Yoga (selfless service) next to him because of his friendly behaviour and his wise observations about the Yoga Sadhana. He always had a positive and philosophic point of view about the things around us. I remember the days near the examination that we had to pass, I was somewhat concerned about it but in the interesting conversations with Rohit I was able to review a lot of knowledge like a very simple story because he knows it very well almost like a book. He was able to explain the questions in the easiest possible way and as a whole. For me Rohit is a very charming and intelligent Yoga Teacher. Next to this, in his company it is always possible to learn a lot of the Yoga science and philosophy and at the same time feeling as comfortable as in a real friend’s presence. I am very glad that until now I have been constantly in touch with Rohit which is a gift for me.
I am Yara Rajeh Shahwan from Egypt. I attended 500 hours Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh where I met Rohit Kumar. I had a great time learning from him in different aspects of life. As a teacher, he has a tremendous knowledge to give with passion and love. He is very respectful towards women in general. During the Kundalini class, he brings a very important concept that connects to the subject matter and present need of the rise of women in all walks of life, which makes him different than his fellow Indian men. His belief that women alone can change the world to a better world, even now strikes to me so deep as I could see and feel how much respect and love he carried to every woman in the class. I still remember him in the class coming, taking his seats and talking as if he is one of the students and making us laugh many times during the session making the whole class seriously funny and educational. He has a very interesting way to deliver the knowledge with a sense of humour that makes student learn and remember easily. As an individual, he is so supportive and helpful. He still sends his students information and this is the best way a teacher can reach the heart of students. I just find no word to express how much I am glad to have been taught by him and have him a good and life time friend forever.
I am Eve Zheim from Paris, France. I attended Yoga Training in India where I met Rohit Kumar and his beautiful Yoga. As a beginner, I appreciated him teaching with much care of my ignorance, my aged body (69 years old), even my “fear” in front of some difficult asanas. He gave me the taste for Yoga and the will to continue in my own country, which I did since I’ve met him as a teacher. I feel very grateful towards him. Besides, I could notice how gentle, careful, efficient he was with the more advanced students, I also enjoyed his humour – and how much his knowledge and transmission of Yoga, as a physical harmonisation as well as a spiritual one, were powerful. And, it was easy to live in community all together (he also cooks very good!). In the year 2017, when Rohit, was in Paris, France, he did not forget to step in my apartment and said, “Eve, here I am with my student I taught in India.” I was so glad to see him in my own city. It was one of his evenings in Paris. Hari Om.
Post course completion, Yogi Rohit continues to engages with us, sending information, guidance, and further instruction. My own practice developed more quickly and thoroughly with the time invested by Yogi Rohit in 1-1 private lessons which were in Kundalini Yoga, Kundalini Tantra, and Hatha Yoga. This time assisted me greatly. Yogi Rohit continues to support my development even today. I am particularly grateful to him for this.
I am Michelle from England. I attended Yoga Teacher Training in Risikesh where I met Rohit Kumar. Rohit was our teacher for our Pranayama studies. Rohit is very passionate about Yoga and gave clear instructions that guided us gently through the various practices. His approach built our confidence in teaching the discipline of pranayama ourselves, and I left the course feeling confident I could teach the foundations of Pranayama to my students. Thanks to Rohit’s encouragement and guidance. His enthusiasm for the subject was infectious. Outside of class Rohit’s warm and friendly smile was a joy. I would definitely recommend Rohit. He is a fantastic, kind and patient teacher.
As a teacher, he speaks English well so it is very easy to understand him, his knowledge on the subject of ‘pranayama’ is second to none and his delivery of that knowledge is simple, clear and easy to understand; which for me was very important as my knowledge of the subject was very limited at that time.
On an individual level, Rohit appears calm and collected and I felt that if I had a question he would answer as fully as he could and if he didn’t know the answer he would get back to me with the information.
Rohit always seemed at ease with himself and he was someone who I wanted to spend time with, not necessarily to talk to but just to be in his company, he seems to emanate confidence and serenity.

My name is Aiko and I come from the Philippines. I attended Kundalini RYT 200 on August 2018 and I had the opportunity to meet Rohit Ji and take his Kundalini Theory and Practice class. I learned the foundations of Kundalini with ease since Rohit Ji’s teaching style is very fluid and very well prepared. I love the way he teaches us not only theory but also his personal experiences making the mystical and esoteric topic such as Kundalini better to grasp and made me realize Kundalini awakening is not exclusive for the chosen few, but can be attained by anyone who will put the effort. Rohit Ji is also open to questions during and after classes, extremely generous with his time and knowledge. Also as a very caring individual, he checks on us every once in a while, making sure we were following the concepts of what he’s teaching. Overall, he is an amazing teacher. Thank you so much Rohit Ji from the bottom of my heart for imparting your priceless and vast wisdom in such a short period of time! I hope to see you again in the near future and learn more about Yoga!
I am Marieluise from Germany. I attended Yoga Training at an Ayurvedic Farm in Kerala, India where I met RohitKumar. During the time, I thought I was advance in Yoga, because I had been practicing Yoga for many years. But during the Classes with Rohit I connected much deeper with myself than ever before and I got a deeper understanding of what Yoga is and can be. Since then Yoga is a very important part of my life and it helps me a lot. I am very grateful to Rohit for this experience. His Classes are full of Light and Knowledge and I can highly recommend Yoga classes with him. Namaste.
“The moment Rohit entered the classroom there was an unexplainable presence and integrity. This made it a wonderful lesson, as we could experience Kundalini Theory through Rohit’s way of being. I didn’t have to take notes in Rohit’s lessons because his passionate storytelling and presence was too wonderful to take my eyes off. I will never forget how Rohit explained the ascension of the Kundalini force as a romantic journey, where the left and right Nadi’s cross as lovers at each Chakra and finally become one, enlightened. The story he said, can be a living experience to anyone and when he said so, we could feel this was happening to all of us. Rohit, his class, his presence and the moments with him: these all are vivid within me as it was.
I am grateful for Rohit’s beautiful experience as a human (and lecturer), because it has inspired me deeply, where words can’t be found. “
It is my pleasure and with great honour that I recommend Rohit Ji, not just to students of Yoga, but to anyone travelling the path to self-discovery.
He was teaching us in a unique way that he kept us always engaged, we didn’t want him to go after class finished. His teachings and his life experiences touched my soul and heart on many occasions. He was always willing to answer all the questions we asked, he was able to answer in a way that spoke to his wisdom of Yoga and its vast levels of depth. By far guru Rohit Kumar ji is the best teacher I ever had and I could ever imagine. He showed so much care about us as students, that he even continued to teach us after the program was over via WhatsApp; he sent us follow-ups with more detailed explanations about the topics we covered.
I highly recommend him as a teacher and guide in the path of Yoga or anything that he commits. There are many teachers, but no too many like him who can touch hearts and souls, and anyone who has the honour of crossing his path, will definitely be a better person and more knowledgeable. I could not have more gratitude to have him as my teacher. Thank you Rohit Kumar ji, Hari Om & Namaste
1) As a teacher, Rohit Ji is really influential, experienced & aware of how to transfer the knowledge to seekers. During every session, he had clear idea about what he’s conveying to seekers. Our group consisted of person from different level of understanding on Kundalini. Still he managed to convey the idea very clearly. His usage of words, expressions in every class were imprinted in memory of student. He was not just a teacher/trainer, he’s a real good friend.
2) He’s very open with everyone, casual smiling & mixing of intense discussion with light touch of humour.
3) I Hope to meet him again and to get more seeking from his enormous knowledge treasures. There is no time limit to learn Kundalini Kriya still he managed to touch the intense depth of Kundalini. I’m looking forward to become his seeker.
I can thoroughly recommend both his services and character as I have found him to be professional, skilled, dedicated and humble as well as honest.
Rohit is a very inspiring teacher, always illustrating the intricate Kundalini theory by relevant examples to make the topics simpler and more understandable. There were moments during the class for all of us when the topics needed a lot of patience to listen and grasp the topics because of so many difficult terminologies in sanskrit language but with Rohit and his style of explaining things kept the enthusiasm of the class always interesting and attention-fetching. I learned a lot in his class as he made complex concepts much easier.
As an individual, Rohit is passionate and he shares his knowledge without count. We wished in every class, we could listen to Rohit’s talk for hours! He is a great speaker and he captivates the attentions with his words, sounds, articulations, gestures and smiles. I remember his classes and how we all felt in the moments he came in, spent time and when he left. It was a great pleasure and consolation for all of us.
I recommend Rohit wholeheartedly and I wish to learn again from him because of his dedication to the teaching as a teacher and care to his students not only as a teacher but also as an individual.
Thanks Rohit Kumar
Dominika and Naser
As a teacher, Rohit is very empathetic. He can convey the content very well and is responsive to the students’ own skills. He gives everyone the time to get into a yoga position and stay in it. The language he chooses is easy to understand, but if we haven’t understood something, he takes his time to convey the content accurately. He has opened a very pleasant and quiet room for the practice. We experienced him as a very respectful teacher. Rohit made us feel that we were right in everything we do. He supported us when necessary and gave us time to find out yoga positions. In the individual exercises, he guided us but also let us find out where our limits are. It was very important to him that we could take something from the yoga practice. He is a person who meets you at eye level and appreciates everyone equally. On an individual level, we have realized that he is living what he is learning and that his practice and teaching are honest. On collective level, we have had the experience that he teaches more awareness in the everyday life of his students.
During the Tantra workshop, unlike apprehensions ours and general, we felt very comfortable. It felt like a sacred ceremony for both of us in which we approached each other carefully, respectfully, and honestly. He created a framework into which we could truly see each other for the first time in our togetherness. The method that we learned in the workshop, we started to practice in our everyday’s encounter. Rohit has given us a very important key to meeting each other. He held the room and accompanied us into the honest process without becoming personal even in the least.
We thank Rohit for this experience and for that great time we spend together. we hope to see him again and learn further.
I met Rohit Kumar more than six years ago in an Ayurvedic place in Kerala. As I arrived in India with an issue of ovarian cysts and very painful menstruations he soon became my personal teacher and designed a very simple yet highly effective sequence of Asanas and relaxation techniques for me. A few allopathic doctors in Germany had already declared my case hopeless and suggested removal of the cysts through surgery as the last resort. Under Rohit’s guidance I dived into the world of Yoga for the first time ever. With lots of dedication on both ends later in my life, just in a few months (approximately 3 months) all cysts and all pain were gone. Plenty of weight was gone, too: D.
Rohit is one of those people that, in case you get lucky enough to cross path with him, light up the room as soon as he enters. He is one of those souls that everybody wants to be close to for reasons unknown. He is that person that has everyone hanging on his lips as soon as he speaks so no word of wisdom or humour goes unnoticed. He is one of those people that you want to have in your life forever as he enriches it in every aspect. When we had the chance to spend time outside the classroom I often witnessed the miracle myself. People from all walks of life were drawn towards him, asked for advice, just wanted to share a story or just yearned to be close. Over the years, I saw students coming and staying, friendships forming and followers adding up in numbers. I often felt humbled to be part of all that greatness. In all those years, I also could not help but wonder what it is exactly that makes him stand out from the rest!
Yes, I would say, he has profound knowledge of what he teaches…, Yes, he teaches with dedication and with patience… Yes, his voice is clear and warm when he speaks…, Yes, his classes are very organised, interesting and easy to follow for everyone – the young and the old, the healthy and the sick…, Yes, he is always respectful and always discreet………I could write many more reasons and virtues and all would be true but deep inside I know there is something else.
Rohit is one of those rare souls that are able to connect with each and everyone they meet. He is part of you and he is part of me. Because he shares our stories, because he experienced it all personally! Rohit not only teaches about yoga and about life, Rohit is life. He has been there. He is real and he is raw. He shares a story with each of us and he can identify with everyone.
Rohit knows the different cultures and religions because he has met people from all over the world. He knows poverty, as he has been born poor himself. He knows material wealth, as he has shared moments of material abundance. He knows solitude, as he has spent a long time in his own company. He knows chaos and anxiety, as he has experienced the huzzle and the buzzle of modern society. He knows hunger, as he has been starving himself. He knows also the opposite, as he has been eating so much that the tummy hurts. He knows about suffering, as he has caused suffering and suffered himself. He knows about loss, as he has lost before. He knows about friendship, as he has made many friends. He knows about happiness, as he has experienced eternal joy. He knows about betrayal, as he has betrayed and been betrayed. He knows about romance, as he has always been a romantic. He knows about forgiveness as he has forgiven many and has been forgiven! He knows about love, as he has loved and has been deeply loved before and now!
For all that I have written, is my experience about Rohit in the very detail of his health, peace, chaos, anxiety, happiness, courage, confusion, honesty, truth, experience both nice and not nice, failure, success and his journey into the various current of his life: all have made him what he is. From my very recent conversation with Rohit, I know he has excelled in a way that I have more admiration for him as a great friend. I am proud to know and have him into my life. I wish him all the best for his bright future!
In Rohit’s presence, I felt that he was and is a very humble and genuine soul. He radiates positivity and sees the good in everything. His smile is one that is contagious and he really does have the nicest hair on a man I have ever seen. I’m not sure what exactly he does with his hair, but it is gorgeous.
If you ever have the pleasure of taking his class or being in his presence, please give him a hug for me. I enjoyed his teachings so much and learned a lot from him inside and outside the classroom. I would like to see him continuing on this path to share his light and knowledge with as many people as he can.
Peace and love,
We were allowed to ask all the questions we had and Rohit answered them. He knows everything about Chakra’s and Kundalini. And he knows a lot about Michael Jackson and Britney Spears (hahahah). we had fun with him and this is also very important. Our course is already finished but sometimes he sends us some information, I appreciate it a lot. I also asked him something on whatsapp and he immediately answered my question. We could see that Rohit enjoys teaching… and living! He is a real Yogi! He also told us about his youth, his personal life…there was no gap between student and teacher.
I wish Rohit all the love and good luck for the future. I hope to meet him again.
Rohit is wonderfully animated when teaching. His wealth of knowledge and depth of academic training is beautifully expressed when he shares his experience and perspectives on the ancient teachings and wisdom that is yoga. His presentation is clear and interesting with stories and experiences to give the lessons context and clarity. One of the best things about Rohit Kumar’s teaching is that he is a wonderful and warm person who shares of himself in his lessons with his students. He conveys his lessons in a collegial discussion format that allows his students to explore questions and ideas in the context of the lesson material.
Rohit Kumar is one of the kindest and most genuine people I have ever met – both as a teacher and simply as a truly good human being.
Hari Om tat Sat!
Anne and Stefan
At his place, the atmosphere was always warm and welcoming. Rohit is a great teacher with many years of practical experience and a lot of theoretical knowledge. He has warmhearted, sympathetic and attentive personality. So he always noticed what we needed.
The class was always well structured. He led us from Asanas, over some meditation practices into deep feelings for ourselves and our partnership. Though the practices were on some points very in time and included deep hugging and kissing, we never felt uncomfortable. Rohit has a great way to lead you deep into your feelings and senses.
He is friendly, funny and full of spiritual wisdom. He also offered us to pay less, if we could not afford the full price. We achieved a lot during the practice and we will never forget the moments we shared with him.
Rohit is the perfect teacher for couples with the aim to learn more about their bodies, emotions, senses and the feelings of love and sexuality.
I also really appreciate his concern about the welfare of his students. Being part of a Yoga stay is never only body work but also a lot of emotional work. As a student of Rohit you will never feel alone with your emotional overcoming. Consequently he is not only a teacher but also a new kind friend.
