Devender is the heart and soul of AumYogaShala and the lead teacher of the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training team. His long list of accolades and awards are recognition of his journey in Yoga which began at a very early age. In 2017 he finally registered with Yoga Alliance® USA and became a rewarded E-RYT 200.
Devender´s commitment to AumYogaShala has been relentless. His vision of an international Yoga school where trainees from overseas practise together with global Indians became true in 2016. Since then a growing number of students from different nations and backgrounds did their first step into Yoga on a mat of AumYogaShala. His challenging but caring classes give space for personal growth, success, happiness and health.
In 2016 Devender received the Indian Yoga Federation´s Ratan Award and in 2017 his work was recognised when he was honoured by the Rishikul Yogshala´s “Yoga Rising Star” award.

Gaby´s Yoga journey started 2007 at a fitness centre when she accidentally entered a Yoga class in her hometown in Ratingen, Germany. Touched by the postures and techniques, she wanted to learn more. She was curious about the variety of asanas as well as pranayama and meditation.
She visited many different schools, tried several styles and approaches and finally fell in love with Vinyasa Flow Yoga. In 2009 she completed a 300 hours Yoga teacher training in Germany and another 300 hours Yoga teacher training at Mathatitu Yoga Ashram in Kerala.
For many years she has been working as a Yoga teacher for different schools. At the same time, she has deepened her knowledge about anatomy and Alignment Yoga (Iyengar Yoga).
Since 2014 she has been involved with Yoga in India. First, she became Devender´s student and deepened her knowledge in Yoga tremendously; since then, she has been working as a volunteer for the AumYogaShala Foundation and as a faculty teacher for AumYogaShala she is in charge for the Yoga Teacher Training in terms of administration as well. In 2018, Gaby opened AumYogaShala in Ratingen (Germany) as a first branch.
