By understanding modern lifestyles, he has successfully created a fusion of ancient Yoga practices to cure many vexing lifestyle ailments through his brand Lifestyle Yoga.

Sumit’s journey began from the North Indian town of Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh and took him to the Himalayas, home of pure yoga, where he discovered Yoga as a way to human consciousness and overall well-being. Sumit began practising Yoga in 1992 at the age of 18 under the guidance of his Guru Shreeram Sharma Acharya in the Himalayas. During his four-year training, he interacted with the mystics and it was this experience that brought him closer to understanding the physiology and psychology of the human body. In 2005, he earned his degree, a PGD in Yoga Science and Human Consciousness, from Haridwar in India and since then has been acclaimed as a professional trainer/therapist, spreading magic of yoga throughout the world.

Nidhi Dhyani

Yoga Trainer

Lifestyle Yoga is a new chapter towards the best learning experience. It’s a great platform for me to learn and teach at the same time. Lifestyle Yoga is my second home now and I am so happy to be part of this organisation.

I feel blessed to be born and raised in the internationally recognised yogi town of Rishikesh where yoga came into my life at a very early age. You cannot hide from yoga here; instead you must embrace and become a part of it. A lifelong practice of yoga led me on a spiritual path and has taken me up to the next level. I decided to choose yoga as my career and began a journey towards a deeper education in yoga.

I later completed a post-graduate degree in Yoga Sciences from Uttrakhand Sanskrit University in Haridwar, Uttarakhand. Since then I began teaching in Rishikesh and most recently joined Lifestyle Yoga.
