Bijay J. Anand - Kundalini Yoga
A Kundalini Yoga teacher, certified by the Kundalini Research Institute, Los Angeles, Bijay has a holistic approach to health, as well as to the elusive word "Happiness".
The principle philosophy behind Bijay's teachings is love and its connection with the fourth chakra in our body called the Anāhata Chakra. Intertwined with his philosophy of love is the emphasis on a pure, organic and natural way of life.
Bijay’s tryst with yoga started 25 years ago. Blessed with an inquisitive mind, he exposed himself to various forms of yoga including Ashthanga Vinyasa and Hatha. But what really inspired him was the style, philosophy and teachings of Mr BK Iyengar.

Zia Nath - Sacred Dances
Zia has been in the study of ancient sacred dances since 1994. Her journey started with Gurdjieff movements, Sufi dances and whirling. In 2006 she embraced the study of Odissi Indian Classical Dances and in 2008 originated her show Sufi Splendour, recently relaunched as Realms of Dance™, presenting Sacred Dance & Whirling Mandala, rendered to music and poetry of renowned artists and mystics. Zia has performed at prestigious festivals and events across the country and internationally, sharing the mystique of our sacred heritage.
The Sacred Dances workshop invokes the awareness of energy and forces that are continuously forming our body. It brings us to a state of continuing presence. The body is here now. Working with the body from a space of meditative awareness develops within us a ‘presence of being’.
