Inventor of the world's first OVAL yoga mat
Founder of Qi Yo Yoga, the first system to unite Hatha yoga with Qi Gong and martial arts
Agung Sangha is a yoga and martial arts master who has dedicated his life to the exploration of the self-realization techniques inherent in many spiritual teachings. He was first introduced to yoga at the age of 8 by Swami Dev Murti. After his introduction, his yoga journey continued with daily sadhana and austerities. In 1984 he moved to Switzerland where he began studying with Master Selvarajan Yesudian.
In 1986, Agung Sangha opened a kung-fu and yoga school in Schaffhausen, Switzerland and the Anima Mundi Creative Unfoldment Global Arts Laboratory in Zurich. It was at this laboratory that he cultivated the foundation of what would later become Qi Yo Multiversal Yoga. On New Year’s Eve 1990, Agung visited the grave of Nicholas Roerich in the Nagar village, Kullu Valley, India. There, during meditation, he received the message to form a spiritual and creative foundation in Eastern Europe.
All Who Seek Via All Paths was established a few months later in Bulgaria. In the years following, it flourished as the first spiritual center of synthesis in Eastern Europe. The center gathered spiritual seekers and healing artists from across the globe in order to present workshops and performances as well as, conduct lectures on esoteric disciplines. Agung’s other teacher, Helana Petrovna Blavatsky, provided him with ideas of synthesis that also served as a guiding light for the center in Bulgaria.
In April 1991, All Who Seek Via All Paths organized an international esoteric meeting in the Palace of Culture in Sofia which permanently transformed the spiritual movements of Eastern Europe. At the end of 1991, Agung received a personal initiation from Master Sri Chinmoy in Malta and was assigned the mission of bringing the Sri Chinmoy movement to Bulgaria, which he did in 1992. In 1994, Agung Sangha also brought Alice Bailey’s Lucis Trust to Bulgaria. Then, in 1995, he conducted research in India, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. In 1996, his research ended with an initiation in Bali, where he received his spiritual name of Agung (holy mountain of fire) and received a blessing to found the system later to be named Qi Yo.
In 2003, Agung came to the USA, where he entered into a period of incubation. During this period, he tested and perfected the Qi Yo method through his daily work with his students. The Qi Yo Multiversal Yoga System finally debuted in 2012 in New York City, at the dawn of the new curve of our planetary evolution.
