Acharya Aman is a talented international author, yogi and Jyotish (Traditional Indian Vedic Astrology) counselor. When Yoga entered the west, people had no idea that it had a direct connection with Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of holistic health and wellness. Similarly, Yoga has a deep connection with Jyotish (Vedic Astrology). Even though Ayurveda has become more well known in North America, Jyotish has remained almost a mystery for most people, even Yoga teachers of the west. Acharya Aman is the first person in recent history who has worked to reveal and establish this lost connection between the ancient wisdom of Yoga with Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) and brought it forth in an easily understandable way. Aman wrote a book designed specifically for the international audience ( get it now or read free book in Canadian public library ), it is available in Japanese, English and Hindi for the benefit of present and future humanity. The title of Aman's works and website is YOGAJYOTI which is used in dedication to the relationship between Jyotish and Yoga, JYOTI, at its root means "light"!
Today we see that many people in this civilized world are still suffering from issues related to body, mind, soul or love. Aman's inclusive yoga courses are designed to help transform your life in all aspects and at a deep level so that you can feel joy and life satisfaction.
Acharya Aman's love and compassion of all humanity are reflected in his works. He has written books, designed courses and teacher trainings, and is available for personal Jyotish counseling sessions with the intention of supporting people's happiness by passing on his knowledge and wisdom. He believes that everyone in the western worlds can benefit from the gifts within his works and invites all to attend his workshops, courses and read his publications.
Aman has dedicated his life to yoga and finding the ultimate balance between mind, body and soul. His search for the meaning of life took him to many spiritual places and many spiritual masters. Reading ancient yogic scriptures, studying with many wise Masters, sitting close to the Ganges river in Rishikesh, India (world capital of Yoga); practicing Yoga, meditation and swimming in Ganges became a part of his daily life. During this time, Aman's consciousness expanded and he experienced the ultimate bliss and fulfillment that each soul desires. Aman participated in a 2month residential "Yoga-Vedanta course" at the Sivananda Ashram (Divine life Society) in Rishikesh. Aman also taught Yoga Philosophy at the Yoga Niketan Ashram, here he began instructing students from all over the world, before departing to share his teachings internationally. Now Aman shares the wisdom he acquired from these Masters, his studies, his practice and his spiritual experiences with students across the globe. As western cultures are awakening and have realized that Yoga is not only twisting the body, but includes deeper teachings about all aspects of life. So now again the search for authentic yoga has arisen and Acharya Aman is here to bring and spread authentic yoga and Jyotish to the western cultures. Such authentic Yoga is here to solve modern age issues regarding body, mind, soul and love - it will bring more compassion, love, wisdom, health, and awakening on the planet.
After spending many years in Tokyo, Japan teaching Yoga, Jyotish and Love through his teacher training courses as well as having the opportunity to travel and teach in many other countries of the world, Aman was given Canadian Permanent Residency status. Canada approved Acharya Aman's Self-Employment Visa based on his significant spiritual teachings and authorship. This type of visa is granted for those who have been designated to have special qualifications and skills, in Aman's case his book/s and international recognition as a Yoga and Jyotish teacher have proven him successful and valuable at an international level. Canada recognizes Aman's wisdom and experience and has welcomed him into Canada to support Canadians in relieving suffering and becoming happier, healthier people. His home is now in Vancouver, (beautiful) British Columbia and his goal is to share his wisdom and enrich the lives of those in search of physical, mental, spiritual harmony and bliss.
