Meet Your Instructors:
Nayaswamis Gyandev and Diksha are two of Ananda’s most popular teachers. They have decades of experience teaching all aspects of Yoga—from postures and breathing techniques, to meditation and yoga philosophy, to training teachers of meditation and yoga. They teach regularly at The Expanding Light, Ananda’s retreat in Northern California, as well as in Canada, Europe, India, Israel, and across the U.S. Together they co-direct Ananda Meditation Teacher Training (in person and online) and create guided meditation, affirmation, and visualization videos for the free Ananda Meditation app. Both offer meditation coaching and spiritual counseling (online and in person) through The Expanding Light.
Coming from a scientific background—he holds a PhD in applied math from Stanford University—Gyandev has always loved the practical, scientific basis of the yoga teachings: it’s all about direct, personal experience, not mere belief, and there’s no better way to have those experiences than through the techniques of this course. He has been practicing the techniques of this course—and many others as well—since 1982.
Gyandev is known for his penetrating insights into the down-to-earth applications of the yoga teachings, and his ability to make those teachings and techniques come alive in practical ways for students. He also loves to laugh—even serious subjects deserve a bit of lighthearted fun—and his gentle humor has endeared him to students for decades.
Gyandev is a Certified Online Instructor as well as an Ananda Lightbearer minister and Kriyacharya (teacher of Kriya Yoga). He serves as director of Ananda Yoga worldwide and Ananda School of Yoga & Meditation. He has written three books (including Spiritual Yoga: Awakening to Higher Awareness), created numerous audio recordings, and produced more than 50 yoga videos, including the 12-volume set, The Ananda Yoga Series.
A multi-talented woman of great warmth, gifted in both intelligence and intuition, Diksha imbues her teaching with a keen mind, heart, spirit, and humor. Above all, she awakens in her students their own inner wisdom and the will to make positive changes in their lives.
In addition to the many courses she teaches at The Expanding Light retreat, she serves as an Ananda Lightbearer minister, and director of Ananda Spiritual Counseling Training (in person and online). Her articles and blogs on meditation appear regularly on Ananda.org.
Diksha brings a broad and varied background to her teaching. A native Israeli, she has a B.S. in Biology from Hebrew University and did research in neurobiology at the Medical School of Jerusalem. She is an accomplished artist; in addition to her BFA for Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, she has received numerous awards for her work. She also spent three years in a Master’s program in Fine Arts at Kyoto Art University in Japan.
Diksha is also an expert in vegetarian cooking and diet, and has created Online Vegetarian Cooking for Health and Vitality (a 97-video series) as well as three acclaimed cookbooks: The Healing Kitchen, Global Kitchen, and Vegetarian Cooking for Starters. She also has studied and taught Ayurveda, India’s ancient system of natural health and healing.
