The Founder Yogi Prakash Ji
In the heart of the Himalayas, where yoga culture is as ancient as the mountains themselves, Prakash Bhatt was born and raised in a Vedic family. It’s here, in his hometown nestled deep within the Himalayan ranges, that Prakash first discovered the profound practice of yoga. His daily ritual, under the morning sun and amidst the serene mountains, ignited his lifelong passion for yoga.
Yoga in His Blood:
Yoga runs in Prakash’s blood, a heritage passed down through generations. He spent months in the sacred town of Rishikesh, immersing himself in the art of Sadhana and seeking deeper knowledge of yoga. It was during this transformative journey that he felt the calling to share this ancient wisdom with the world.
A Journey of Giving:
In 2012, Prakash embarked on a journey of giving. He began teaching yoga to children in Rishikesh, and his altruistic spirit led him to offer free yoga camps and classes, spreading the invaluable knowledge of yoga far and wide.
Today, Prakash’s legacy of giving continues to shine brightly through Omkar Yoga Shala. The school embodies the spirit of generosity, nurturing a community of yoga enthusiasts who seek not only to learn but also to give back. The seeds of goodwill sown by Prakash have blossomed into a forest of positive change, where yoga is a beacon of light guiding individuals toward inner peace and self-realization.
The journey of giving, as epitomized by Prakash Bhatt, serves as a reminder that the true essence of yoga lies in sharing and uplifting others. It’s a journey that not only transforms lives but also creates a ripple effect of compassion, unity, and well-being.
Founding Omkar Yoga Shala
In honor of Lord Shiva, the source of yoga, Prakash established Omkar Yoga Shala. “Omkar,” another name for Shiva, signifies the essence of creation, preservation, and transformation. Just as Lord Shiva’s cosmic dance symbolizes the eternal rhythm of life, Omkar Yoga Shala embodies the timeless teachings of yoga.
