The Yoga Wellness Center (YWC), Bangalore, was established by the brothers Raj, and Chandra (Devatma) Kamal in 2012. Both the Kamal brothers received higher education at the Bihar Yoga Bharti, the world’s first Yoga University, and continued to teach yoga all around Bangalore, for the last 8years. They are both fully trained yoga masters, who are adept and knowledgeable teachers in yoga.
Raj Kamal has always had a keen interest in Yoga and spiritual life style, even as a child. His first lesson in Yoga was taught to him by his father. And in later years, he received spiritual guidance from his family guru, Udaynarayana Singh. He underwent a series of spiritual experiences during this period and finally, under the instruction of his guru, joined the Bihar School of Yoga as a Post Graduate student of Applied Yogic Science (2002- 2004). On the eve of Vasant Panchami in 2003, he received Mantra Diksha and Upanayana Samsakra from his guru Pramahansa Niranjanananda.
After his Post Graduation, he joined Ayurdhama, an ayurvedic resort run by the M. S. Ramaya Group, as Yogacharya. He had since conducted Yoga therapy and teacher training courses for four years, at the resort.
Later, he worked as a freelance Yoga teacher, and conducted workshops and stress management courses for several corporate groups. He also conducted classes at private sessions in apartments and homes.
He is a fully qualified teacher in the life science of Yoga, and is specialized in Pranayama, Chakra Sadhana and Prana Vidya.
Devatma was born Chandra Kamal. He started practicing Yoga at the age of 15, when he learnt classical Yoga from his father. Yoga in his early years, inspired Devatma, and resulted in him taking up Yoga as a career, and later devoted a full time study of the subject. He completed his Post Graduation in Applied Yogic Science (2002 - 04) at the Bihar Yoga Bharati, in Munger, which is the world’s first Yoga University.
In true Yogic Tradition, he simultaneously followed the spiritual path of Yoga, and found his guru Paramahamsa Niranjanananda Saraswati, who gave him the name, Devatma.
He later worked in Atma Darshan Yogashram in Bangalore, as a resident Yoga Teacher. Here, he was a core group member for Health Management, Corporate Training and (Student) Training syllabi.
