Shatveer Singh Rana
Traditional Hatha yoga teacher, Shatveer Singh Rana has been in yoga since the age of 15. He started studying in Sivananda. More than 9 years of teaching overseas and India gave him a great opportunity to learn about different individual and found out how to approach asana to individual body condition. Yogi Shatveer has truly dedicated himself to yoga. He loves to tell students that anything they attained very quickly, will disappear very quickly, which means that when you spend more time to learn a thing, it will be yours forever.


The teacher training will be held in Rishikesh, India. Rishikesh is a city in India’s northern state of Uttarakhand, in the Himalayan foothills beside the Ganges River.
