Sw.Yogananda Namito (Rakesh Ranjan) started studying yoga at the age of seven under Swami Satyananda, the founder of Bihar School of Yoga and a direct disciple of Swami Shivananda. Later in his life he studied with great masters of yoga and spirituality such as B.K.S Iyengar and J.Krishnamurti. It was Krishnamurti who inspired him to travel to Iyengar Institute Pune, India and meet Mr. Iyengar in order to learn yoga on deeper level and learn more about the effect of yoga on human body, mind and being. With the blessings of Guruji Iyengar, he fell in love with the art of yoga and began to learn yoga postures with accuracy, alignment and precision along with its therapeutic and medical aspect.
