Dr. Vidwan Vijaya Kumar coming to Maleny Mountain Yoga

May 8, 2017



Guruji has been granted a visa at last and is coming to us from India on Thursday June 22nd, 2017. We are so excited about the arrival of our friend and teacher from Pandeshwar in the southern state of Kerala, India. 

Dr. Vijaya Manja has a PhD in Yoga Studies, is a Brahmin priest who has been raised in a family of yogis with ties to Krishnamacharya. He studied in a famous  gurukula of Sringeri and in Mysore Sanskrit College from where he graduated with a vidvan degree in Nyaya and Vedanta philosophies. He has been travelling and teaching  around Asia and Europe, but this is his first trip to Australia. He is a scholar, a yogi, a priest and a householder and runs his own yogagurukula in Pandeshwar, Sastan, where we stayed last year. All students who stay with Guruji are encouraged to contribute to the local community. Guruji is proactive in his area and is working towards a sustainable environment by setting up a plastic recycling plant on his property. Any donations toward this would be gratefully accepted but are by no means expected.


  He will be holding various workshops and a retreat while he is in Australia. (If you are interested in the retreat in Eumundi or any of the workshops in Brisbane, please contact us).

We are also looking forward to introducing Guruji to the delicate art of Surfing!

He will be conducting a Pooja (spiritual ceremony) here at MMYoga, followed by a yoga philosophy class. All are welcome to come and meet this lovely man and deepen your yoga knowledge.


Date: Thursday 22nd June, 2017 Time: 6pm-8pm. Cost: $35... All money goes to Vijaya to assist with his travel costs, so this is a non-profit event.

 If you are interested in staying in the loop, please just send “YES” via text or email to us.
