Jitendra took the Moksha Yoga Teacher Training when he was 19 years old. Shortly after completing the training in Toronto he moved to Beijing, where he was the resident yoga teacher at a new studio called OmShanti Yoga. Teaching in an upscale Chinese neighbourhood, Jitendra had money, friends, a beautiful boyfriend and a lavish place to rest his head after a long day at work. As all his material dreams were coming true in China, Jitendra's anxieties were at an all time high. He was living in hell inside his body. He left Beijing feeling scared and depressed.

Pockets filled with cash and spiritually bankrupt, his sails were set for India. In India he studied yoga therapy in SVYASA University; Tantra with Tantric master Anath K. Atre; and philosophy in a series of ashrams throughout the south.

Since his journey across India, Jitendra has studied and taught yoga all over the world. He was the founding teacher of Inner Living Yoga in Malaysia, H.Om Yoga in Singapore, and European Spa & Yoga, also in Malaysia. While in Malaysia teaching yoga, he volunteered 20 hours per week as a yoga and English teacher in a school for children who were living in poverty.

Now, back in Winnipeg with over 1600 hours of teacher training, countless hours spent in contemplation and meditation, and a lifestyle that revolves around his passion for the yogic experience, Jitendra lives freely while still in form.

Many years of spiritual self-study have led him to continuously live his life in celebration of the ever-unfolding truth of yoga.

Yoga is infinite love. Beyond name and form. Beyond thought and imagination. Yoga is the unending summation of the interconnectedness of all creation.

Yoga is who I am. It’s not just what I do. It’s who I am. And it’s who you are too. And you and me? We are the same.
