Sudip is one of the pillars of Kamala Yoga Nepal and manages our operations. He is also our main yoga teacher and trekking guide. Sudip comes from an educational background of computer engineering. As a young adult, his journey was one of outward focus and achievement. Then, a 10-day silent Vipassana meditation course caused him to experience a profound shift, turning his focus from outward to inward.
Up to this point, he had been practising yoga in a playful way, relishing competition among friends. He also understood yoga’s healing power for physical diseases, but had not gone beyond that. But after turning the focus of his life inward, he started to perceive things differently and started to understand his life in a completely new way. He found rich and meaningful answers to his questions in yoga practice and philosophy, and felt called to live his life in a very spiritual and simple way, foregoing possessions and attachment.
Sudip’s yoga education at Sadhguru’s Isha Foundation includes courses on Upa Yoga, Yoga Asanas, Surya Kriya, Sambavi Mahamudra, and Bhuta Shuddi. To date, he has also twice repeated the silent 10-day Vipassana meditation experience. His yoga practice has helped heal him from several physical ailments that used to bother him, such as kidney stones.
Sudip worked as a yoga and meditation teacher at a retreat center for one and a half years before joining Kamala Yoga Nepal. He enjoys connecting people from all over the world and sharing his knowledge and experiences.
