Manoj Bhanot

Manoj was born into a lineage and heritage of health, Yoga and spiritual teachers. He was privileged to grow up in the right settings, which paved the way for his Yoga journey. It is difficult to say when exactly the formal introduction with Yoga took place but a few childhood pictures reveal his natural inclination at an early age. He grew up listening to Bhagavad-Gita and breathing the Hindu and Yoga philosophy. His formal education of anatomy, biochemistry and physiology contributed to his deep understanding of the physical aspect of Yoga. Manoj has the natural ability to connect with people through his intuitive psychological understanding, sense of humor and his communication skills. He is an inspiring teacher and his students simply love him. Bihar School of Yoga, Sivananda Vedanta Ashram and YogaLife Foundation are a few of the places where he got his formal Yoga education and earned his titles as Yoga Shirimani and Yoga Acharya. Manoj dedicated a few years in innovating and developing Yoga products like nasal wash pots and eye wash cups in order to revive the forgotten and distinct practices of Yoga and Shatkarma. Since 2004, Manoj started teaching Yoga and he is continuing his journey of Yoga under the flagship of Yogalife Belgium and YogaLife Foundation India. Manoj currently lives in Belgium.
