The journey inside yoga started for Vini many years ago. From a young age he practiced yoga regularly as a form of physical exercise without a deep spiritual intent. As an adult, after several years working a very hectic schedule with a Japanese company, his yoga journey shifted. It’s in this moment that Vini discovered the yoga consciousness inside himself – truly feeling the relaxing power of his daily practice. This led him to rethink his path in life. After the realization that he felt disconnected from his soul, Vini left his job, beginning a spiritual journey around India, his Motherland. He began to meet likeminded people, sharing thoughts about life and serving others all of which gave him new power for a new life.
In September 2012, with help from friends, Vini founded the Yoga Vini Welfare Society in Rishikesh. He believes that he is fulfilling his dream: to make people happy, by teaching in the yogic way, in a relaxing place that is ideal for finding balance. Vini is not a spiritual guru or a Yogi living in the jungle. He believes simply in serving society by spreading good thoughts, teaching people how to relax and to find space in their lives. He likes to say: “We are a part of the society. We live here. We serve here. I am sharing a way of life that I have discovered and the one that I have understood. If we start walking, people will join us, making the way easier, together.” Positive thoughts attract positive people. Positive people give positive energy. Positive energy makes you……happy.
After many years of practice and learning he developed his own spine concept on which his yoga teaching is based. Because of this simplicity and comprehensive knowledge, students are able to learn and grow in such a short time. He is collaborating with many professionals from the same field to go deeper into spine and making all the knowledge more approachable to everyone.
Many questions were raised in mind since childhood e.g. who has made all these things like humans, sun, moon, animals, plants etc. What is the purpose of the creator to make all these things?
There was a flood of questions in my mind as my age was growing. Looking for the answers to these questions, I entered in this Spiritual Life.
Since then I started knowing about meditation, pranayama, ayurveda lifestyle and also started to adopt these kinds of things into my life. After many years of the practice, I had reached the capital of yogic life where I met with the world-famous Yogi ji whose name you all know and that is “Yogavini” . He has been living a yogic life for the many years. Similarities in Qualities, Karma, Behaviour got closer us to each other and then decided to go forward with him on this way of Yogic Life . I feel proud of being a part of this honest and well Esteemed organization.
Tina has started her yoga journey with attending two Yoga Vini teacher trainings in Rishikesh. Experiencing all the mental and body changes after only 2 months of learning and practicing, she knew she found her new path. Before she was working in fitness industry for 10 years, teaching pilates and other group exercise classes all around the world (Slovenia, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Japan …) But only now she understood the depth and base of healthy and fit body, (mind and soul). She was finally able to comprehend all the knowledge together and decided to continue her journey with Yoga Vini. She loves sharing her experience and knowledge with others, being able to see how people can grow and make positive changes in their life. Yoga Vini concept about spine as a base for life is really close to her experience and understanding, so it was natural to connect with it and continue this path. She is really excited about her future in Yoga Vini and all the collaborations with other professionals from same field, as she feels she will be able to learn more about Ayurveda way of living and go deeper into spine as a base for life, fully experience yogic lifestyle and hopefully inspires others to find themselves as well.
