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

Angamardana January 18

I recently attended Samir's Angamardana class. I really enjoyed the day and I'm glad I was able to learn such a profound practice. I'm grateful to Samir for bringing this to New York.

Samir helped me learn many postures in so little time. He corrected each of us during the practices and made sure we're doing them correctly.
We can also go back without charge for corrections the next time he teaches this class. I will definitely take him up on that offer. We were told to just text or call if we have any trouble with the practice at home. I appreciate his dedication.

I’m looking forward to learning Yogasanas with Samir next month!

Isha Yoga Complete

Took the yoga created by Sadhguru, and it was delivered just how it was supposed to be delivered. I took Yogasanas and Bhastrika with Yoga Nebula and am super happy with what I got out of it. I'll take a class with them again when I am ready to learn more

Very Experienced Teacher

It was a pleasure to take Samir's Hata Yoga Class. He was dedicated to providing the utmost optimal environment for his students and determined to help us in any way possible. We were all well equipted to do home practice once the session was complete. Samir has a great attention to detail and made adjustments to my posture that I did not notice myself, and would of kept practicing incorrectly if not pointed out. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

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.
