From an early age Namito has been on his path of yoga, learning from teachers and masters that most only ever read about with awe and reverence. Living and growing up in the state of Bihar, he witnessed Swami Satyananda practicing yoga on one of his visits and was captivated by the ancient allure of yoga. At the age of seven Swami Satyandanda began teaching Namito asana and pranayama practices after discovering his immense ability and potential. From an early age Namito began translating books form English to Hindi and spoke about his ability to witness his mind, watching his thoughts move across the ceiling as he lay on his bed, detachment from his mind a natural ability. Namito began his schooling years at the Krishnamurti boarding school, learning from the enlightened master throughout his early education. Seeing his potential and interest, Krishnamurti suggested that Namito should go and learn from B.K.S Iyengar. Studying with Iyengar personally for a few years, Namito also got opportunity to study with Pattahbi Jois for one year. After this Namito traveled to Norway, where being encouraged by both his father and his master, B.K.S Iyengar, he pursued his medical career and taught Yoga.Throughout this time, he continually came back to India to continue learning from his Master Iyengar, and after living many years abroad in 2010, Namito came back to India to visit his Master Iyengar who asked him to move back to India, start intensive practice and assisting in his medical and therapeutic yoga classes. In 2013, Iyengar directed Namito to start his own yoga school, which is how Abhinam Yoga School was created, first in Dharamkot, and then in Patnem, South Goa. Since 2013, more than 100 people have been graduated as Registered Yoga Teachers with the school. Namito is so happy with how the school is evolving and growing with every year.
Shunyo has been learning and practicing yoga for many years in its various forms like Ashtanga, Iyengar, Hatha and Shivananda. She studied theology at the Doshisha University in Japan. She has a strong foundation of practice in Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow. During her yoga study at Iyengar Institute Pune, India, she developed a strong feeling that yoga is for all types and age group of people. She was fascinated by the various uses of different yoga props and became aware of their significance in teaching yoga to people with physical limitations. Shunyo’s teaching style is a fusion of her experience of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga of Patanjali with Iyengar style and her close contact with nature and meditation. With her serene individuality she motivates her students to approach yoga with humbleness and devotion.
