“Put your heart, mind and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success”

I am a freelance Yoga and Meditation therapist, living in Barcelona. Offering personal counselling in person or over Skype, writing, and holding workshops and retreats that help to discover one’s own innate power and to widen horizons is what I most enjoy, along with dedicating time to family of course.

Yoga's promise of a better life offers us the discovery of internal joy, compassion, and friendship towards all beings. But it also offers more pragmatic solutions like emotional and mental independence, which I consider some of the greatest virtues available to humans. Humans experience various different states of mind or emotion during a single day, sometimes during just a single hour. Through these we sometimes uplift our world, sometimes we can't help but contaminate it. And here's the thing, we could choose to always uplift. But that can only come from a personal decision, a commitment. Which in turn requires a deep understanding of our own selves. Yoga offers this invaluable gift of self-transformation. Of bettering our own lives and of those around us.

I return regularly to my native India, for my favourite holidays are those spent along with my family, with yogis and masters, whose mere presence radiate friendship, joy and tranquillity. I've been a disciple of Swami Satyananda Saraswati of the Bihar School of Yoga since 1980, whose ashram I return to regularly. I also enjoy discovering new yoga paths and meeting other masters. 

I've been teaching yoga for over 20 years. I opened my first yoga studio, Barcelona School of Yoga in 1990 and founded a Yogaworld magazine in 2004. Over the years I found I wanted to dedicate more time to practice and study, and decided to travel to India more frequently. I now divide my time between India and Spain, almost equitably.

After experiencing a profound recovery from a serious sports injury and coinciding health issues through Yogic practises, Nikhil immersed himself into Yoga and Ayurveda as a lifestyle. 


A strong believer in the healing and health giving powers of Yoga & Ayurvedic practises, Nikhil is grateful to share these with others. He teaches Yoga in London and is also a qualified Thai Massage therapist; a deeply therapeutic healing art, which has its roots in Indian yogic sciences.
