Sri Surinder Singh

Surinder Singh, the leading teacher of asana adjustment and instruction at Himal
Featured Teacher

Surinder Singh is probably the most famous yoga teacher in the Himalayas and entire Northern India. Surinder Singh teaches hatha yoga– a combination of yogasana, pranayama and meditation– in the atmosphere of cordiality and support. It is this atmosphere and energy, and itsvastly positive effect on practice that the master's students notice and come back for, year after year. Being a mechanical engineer by education, Surinder integrates principles of mechanical physics into his teaching practice thus turning them into biomechanics of asana alignment and adjustment as well as of yoga practice as a whole.

Sri Surinder Singh was initiated in the tradition of yoga by his teacher and guru Sri Swami Dharmananda, the then superior of Ved Niketan Asram in Rishikesh. Swami made no mistake. Today, Surinder Singh is the most popular yoga teacher in the world's capital of yoga. Thousands of yoga practitioners from all over the world call Surinder Ji their main teacher. Surinder Singh is immensely popular in Russia through his teaching at Himalayan Yoga Academy.

In his classes at the Academy, Surinder Singh teaches general yoga practice, mass adjustment in a class setting, gives workshops on asana alignment and adjustment, and tunes his students into the "real yoga" – yoga of Compassion and Action.

Testimonials for Sri Surinder Singh

It has been a long five week course from 06:00-19:00 mon-sat, day in and day out with not much sleep in between. We all came here thinking we had an idea of what yoga was and quickly discovered we literally knew nothing. But that seed of nothing has now become an internal blossom slowly working its way to the surface- preparing its beauty for the world outside.

The growth and transformation that has occurred here will continue to shape our lives from this day on. The awareness that has been cultivated inside will continue to shine light on the darkest times and keep afloat the pursuit of happiness.

To the friends I made here, may you all go out into the world with new flames inside, sharing the wealth of knowledge we took from HYA.

A big shout out to Saul my Roomie- for putting up with my idiosyncrasies, for sharing the struggles and stresses of YogaTeacherTraining, for being a brother from another mother It would not have been the same without you brother!

Congratulations to all completing the course!!

We can now return to the lives we left and bring new joy to the people who we share this time with.

Reviews by graduates

Of all the yoga teacher training courses that I attended in my entire life, this one at the Himalaya Yoga Academy is the most impressive. Not only I left the course with a massive amount of new and useful knowledge, but having spent 5 weeks in a healthy supportive environment realized myself as a professional yoga instructor. Our teachers wholeheartedly taught us all that they knew and experienced. Although we rarely used a chair in a class, we felt this academic atmosphere all over. A true academy it was! My rating is 12 out of 10. Sign up now and think no more about any other yoga training program!
