Nithya Priyan
Lead Trainer and Founder of the Nithya Priyan School of Yoga

Priyan describes his classes as poses teaching poses. His sequences are peak pose based structured progressions that intelligently and succinctly prepare a person's body for the requirements of the peak pose while developing muscle memory and proprioception,

His is a compassionate teacher that creates a space of safety and acceptance around the students who come seeking the calm and peace he radiates.

He inspires by example, himself grounded in a strong and consistent practice. His students are not pushed towards unsafe and unreachable goals, but are pulled towards the Joy of exploring their boundaries and possibilities.

His boundless energy led him to pursue an intense full-time teaching career, out of which he developed a structured approach to the learning of Yoga Asana that benefits his students in establishing a long term comprehensive understanding of the practice.

Noting the absence of such an approach in the current yoga environment, he founded the Nithya Priyan School of Yoga where a chosen team of teachers are now taking this structured approach a step further as the School's 27 week curriculum.

Priyan sees the 200 Hour Teacher Training as the culmination of his teaching career and a golden opportunity to share all that he has gained during his Yoga Journey. He is committed to working closely with each and every student to unlock their potential and Realise their Vision.
