Founder & Producer

Arvind Chittumalla is a yoga practitioner, teacher and a yoga entrepreneur. Arvind was first introduced to yoga at the age of 9 (30 years ago) in Hyderabad, India. At about the same age, he also learned other Indian spiritual philosophies and Sanskrit. He spent most of his childhood and adolescent years in a boarding school that emphasized spiritual growth. He embraces a yogic lifestyle that integrates all the eight limbs of Raja Yoga, as prescribed by Patanjali. You could call him a 'non-asana' yoga teacher! He has been teaching Meditation, Pranayama, Yoga Philosophy, Sanskrit and Chanting for the last 6 years. Arvind uses a number of meditation techniques during his classes, depending on the needs of the students and their level of practice: Vipassana, Chakra meditation, World Peace meditation, Mantra & Japa, Yoga Nidra and Walking meditation.
