I am a Hatha Yoga teacher trained at Isha foundation in Coimbatore, India.
I was introduced to meditation/yoga over a decade ago and since then its been part of my life. In 2014 i decided to go to the Isha School of Hatha Yoga, India to get trained on becoming a certified Hatha Yoga teacher. During the 6 months of rigorous training at Isha Hatha Yoga school, I participated in almost 2000 hours of training & learnt many profound practices including Yogasanas, Surya Kriya, UPA Yoga, Angamardhana & many more .

Yogasanas (unlike exercises) are very subtle processes of manipulating your energy in a certain direction which help in taking charge of your life by transforming your body and mind into a new possibility in your life.

Surya Kriya is a potent yogic practice of tremendous antiquity, designed as a holistic process for health, wellness, and complete inner well-being.

Angamardhana , another practice, is a phenomenally powerful system that exercises both the physical and energy body & learnt many other profound practices for well-being.

You can learn more about other practices at my website at and request you come to any of the workshops.

During my weekdays, i spend time towards planning South Asian Theater Production in New York City & also assist people in finding their passion/job & during transit you can find me reading a newly found book.

My weekends are available for offering classes in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut.

I encourage you to sign up on the website at yoganebulaDOTcom to keep yourself up to date about the upcoming classes and can also like the page at facebookDOTcom/yoganebula

Thank you

Surya Shakti : With SamirJi

This is one of my best experience, quality of teaching surpassed any yoga class I ever attended. After two days class, some of us continued with 21 days challenge. Samirji gave his attention to every move and perfected us all. His place is very nice too. We started 545 AM every morning. I would love to take more classes with him.

Angamardana !!!

Angamardana: True to its name. Beautifully crafted by Sadguru. Just put your body and mind in one place as instructed rest of everything will fall in place. Samir knows what he is doing. I was very skeptical about how to remember all the steps..but he was so confident that by the end of the class we all know what we are doing and he turned out to be correct. He will make sure you will walk out happily(with more energy) by the end of the class.

Suryakriya class April 2017

I enjoyed the Suryakriya class with Samir, instructions were clear and precise and I was able to internalize even the subtle nuances of the Suryakriya, through instruction, visualization and practice. I am continuing the practice everyday since.

Surya Kriya

I took Surya Kriya with Samir last weekend it was a great class. The way it was taught was unique in that it is demonstrated, guided, and they also use visualization so that you remember the steps and are able to do the practice on your own. I appreciate having the opportunity to learn from Samir and hope to take more classes in the near future.

Awesome Butha Shuddhi Class

I had the wonderful opportunity to take the Butha Suddhi class with my daughter. She's very skeptical. After the class she thanked me. She liked the way Samir explained everything sooo patiently to all of us. She left the place feeling very good. For my part I'm happy that Sadhguru made this practice available to us. Thank you Samir it was a great class.

Stays true to the spirit of Isha teachings and dedication

I've been wanting to learn Surya Kriya so I was very glad when I found Samir offering the class relatively close to where I live.

Samir was attentive, focused on alignment and made sure we were doing the forms correctly. He stays true to his mission and a spirit of dedication to his teaching Isha Hatha Yoga.

He made the whole experience enjoyable and rejuvenating. He had a practitioner who demonstrated the postures.

I was so blissed out and euphoric and was in a different dimension for the rest of the evening!

Thank you, Samir!

practice what you preach

it is clear that lal samir lives a yoga lifestyle. clear and concise he is able to precisely present the asana with traditional care. corrections are demonstrated or delivered with quiet discretion.
lal samir is knowledgeable and creates a safe space. it is possible for me to correctly practice the material on my own, at home, after attending his workshop. he is obviously a yogin on and off the matt.
thank you to lal and vivek for your generosity of time and learning.
