Certified 500hr yoga teacher training, Master in Reiki, and main teacher of Aum Yoga Vietnam. Master of Arts (Yoga)

A famous saying in India goes: “If you are born in Rishikesh, you already have yoga in your veins.”

Before his path lead him to yoga, Rahul Ji did a bachelor’s degree in hospitality & hotel administration in Orissa. After 5 years working in the hospitality industry in the Maldives as a Chef de partie, he met his guru Narendra Gusain at his uncle’s yoga Sansthan named ” Rishikesh Yog Peeth”.

Over time and with a lot of self-study and observing and discussions about the vast yoga philosophy, Rahul Ji realized that he belongs to a yogic path, and that’s when his yoga journey started.

With the blessing of Shri Narayan Dutt (Narendra Gusain’s guru) and the guidance of his guru and best friend Vijay Ji, Rahul dedicated one full year to his passion and devoted himself to his self-practice. His practice included intensive Yoga  Philosophy, Ashtanga and Hatha yoga. After he had finished the training, his guru sent him to Vietnam to share and spread the knowledge and wisdom he had learned.

Rahul Ji was the main teacher of the teacher training courses at Nomad Yoga in Hoi An for nearly two and a half years before starting his smaller but full-of-heart studio to continue sharing yoga and inspiring more and more people from all over the world.
