Navtej teaches at my studio in classes that range from mid-level students to extensively trained Yoga Therapists and they are inspirational to everyone. He has great depth of knowledge and knows how to present the simple and profound in a way that can be received fully both intellectually and through the body. Despite Navtej's breadth of yoga knowledge, he is accessible, present, and still an active student of yoga. It is an honor and pleasure to have him teach my students.

Navtej Johar is a master teacher who combines teachings from a very deep yoga lineage with his own dedicated practice. I've taken workshops with Navtej for several years and always learn something new, have a great experience of practicing and reach more subtlety of awareness. He incorporates the wisdom of the Yoga Sutra-s with his own and that is a mighty delightful mix! Plus, he's a very kind person and is accessible. I highly recommend his classes.

I spent the weekend at a workshop with Navtej Johar in Ireland recently and couldn't be more inspired. Navtej guided us through experiential practice in a manner that really was an exploration and opening to our own personal discovery rather than to a predetermined result.
Using 'the materiality of the body' we explored technique in Asana, Pranayama and Chakra Meditation that guided awareness inward to the central axis and a quite remarkable experience of inner stability and space.

His presentation of yoga theory translated beautifully into practice and his encouragement to explore our personal discoveries an exercise in, and a generator of, Faith and Freedom.

Thanks you to Navtej for the clarity, empowerment and generosity of your teaching.
