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 for 3-Year I have been teaching with Lifestyle Yoga.
