Ashtanga Yoga Dublin - Sudhir tiwari
Sudhir was brought up at Kaivalyadham Yoga Institute, in Lonavala, India, amidst the rich traditional yogic heritage of Swami Madhavdasji Maharaj, Swami Kuvalyanandaji and Swami Digambarji, a tradition kept alive by his father, the well known Pranayama master, Sri O. P. Tiwari.

Swami Digambarji, on his own accord, without any announcements and fanfare initiated Sudhir in 1981 by conducting a Yadnopavit ceremony (Thread Ceremony) and accepted him as a disciple. Sudhir received his primary and advanced Yogic and Ayurvedic training from Swami Digambarji which included the study of traditional texts, mantra yoga, fire ceremony, pranayama and various aspects of adhyatm (spiritual) yoga. Sudhir also learnt pranayama and Hathapradipika from his father.

Sudhir’s calling came in early 2012 when his father expressed his desire for him to become an instrument to further the message of Swami Kuvalyananda and Swami Digambarji’s by spreading, in theory and practice, the fundamentals of undiluted yoga. Very willingly Sudhir agreed, so now he travels all around the world conducting workshops in the theory and practice of Yoga (Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Chanting) and Ayurveda and which, with his familiarity with alternative western medicine, he also correlates with these disciplines. His Mantra, Breathe Positive, Breathe Yoga.

Sudhir has served the Health and Wellness Industry in the US, Canada and India at an executive level and received his advanced Teachers Training Certificate in Yoga from Kaivalyadhama Lonavala, India, Bachelors of Engineering from Bangalore University Bangalore, India and MBA from St. Josephs University, Philadelphia, USA.

Sudhir now lives in Toronto Canada, with his wife and two children.


Asana, Pranayama and Meditation – The Tradition
Going back to the Roots, The Art and The Science of Yogic Practices – Yoga Explained, Yoga Practiced and Yoga Experienced.


To explain by means of authentic texts and through asana, pranayama, meditation and chanting, how we can experience a new level of well being, fulfilment and calm through our Yoga practice.


• Understanding the yogic definition of practice, why it is significant – and then applying it over three days
• Identifying the benefits of its impact and how practice leads to experience and how that leads you back to practice
• Asana, pranayama, chanting and meditation techniques based directly on the authoritative texts of yoga (Patanjali Yoga Sutra, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Gherada Samhita).
• Sudhir will discuss how yoga contributes towards resolving conflicts within ourselves and with others – and the goal of yoga to improve our everyday lives.
• Daily pranayama practice preceded by pulse diagnosis and preparatory techniques
• Based on your personal pulse diagnosis (optional) Sudhir will recommend participants a personal pranayama practice, or he will modify your current practice.
• Sudhir will lead three Q & A sessions to cover other relevant topics that arise.
• He will give three talks spanning yoga and Ayurveda.
• In Ayurveda he will cover the benefits of the individual pranayamic techniques and their benefits on our health from an Ayurvedic perspective.


There will be two related sessions each day, morning and evening on the Friday, to facilitate attendance for people going on to work, and morning and afternoon sessions on Saturday and Sunday. The morning sessions will cover asana and pranayama techniques and in the evening/afternoon Sudhir will give a talk, answer questions and introduce chanting and meditation techniques.
