Riyas Babu

Riyas is a dedicated yoga and meditation teacher and a student of Vedanta.

Born in a Small village in India, Riyas have traveled extensively around India at a very young age, gaining knowledge and embarking on a personal journey of finding more about higher consciousness.

A journalistic career opened new opportunities, allowing Riyas to travel abroad to war-torn Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. The sheer human suffering he has witnessed during this tenure has convinced him that true liberation is only can be through unconventional love. This realization persuaded him to spend more of his time learning and exploring the ancient philosophy of yoga studying under different masters in India and abroad.

Riyas have been teaching around the world for about 20 years. He is the founder of the Varkala International Yoga Festival and the Director of the Satwik School of Yoga and Meditation. He authored 'In the Country of Longing' a novel set during the genocide in Darfur.

Currently, he runs Yoga teachers' training courses and retreats around the world.
