Live Long, Live Strong and Enjoy Your Existence Here By Applying Sadguru Kedarji’s 4 Pillars of Total Well-Being with Spiritual Power as the foundation.

What Is Yoga?

The meaning of Yoga is the transformation of limited human awareness into Divine Awareness of the Ultimate Reality – the energy substratum of every thing – Divine Conscious Energy or Shakti. The full awareness of this energy substratum is the spark that ignites the loving flame of wellness in all areas of life. 

Authentic Spiritual & Wellness Mentor

Just as a teacher or mentor is required in the arts, sciences, athletics and so on in order to become really competent in those fields – So too, in the field of permanent spiritual transformation through Yoga and Wellness, a competent Yoga master and mentor is required. In this regard, a master should be one who has attained the goal that he espouses to others.

Kedarji’s unique approach to the science of Yoga includes Kedarji’s Ecology of Wellness and the integration of his 4 Pillars of Total Well-being. The emphasis is on Spiritual Power, the energy substratum that threads through everything. In this way, Kedarji has become known as a Yoga and Wellness Master in a long lineage of great sages that includes the great sage Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri. 


Affectionately called Kedarji (it means blessing of  Grace), he is also a Shaktipat Guru and master of true meditation with more than 35 years experience instructing meditation, wellness and whole life transformation.

Kedarji’s leadership in these areas comes from his direct experience of being established in the state that embodies the fullness of Humanity in the constant Delight, Peace and Joy of the inner Self. Students and devotees have said that he has the power to give the direct experience of what is being taught.

Studies In Preventive Medicine

He studied oriental medicine, iridology and Holistic nutrition with Michio Kushi, founder of the Macrobiotic movement in America. In addition, Kedarji mentored under Michio Kushi. He completed his studies and training in Oriental Medicine, graduating from The Kushi Institute in 1979. He also studied with Aveline Kushi, Dr. Bernard Jensen and Wataru Ohashi of Ohashi Institute and Health who also taught him Hatha Yoga.

Additional Holistic Wellness Mentoring

Additional mentoring occurred under Michael Abehsera, Masaaki Yamaguchi, the founder of Souen health and William Dufty, author of the book Sugar Blues. Kedarji also studied herbology, botanical medicine and Holistic, Vegan cooking with Anne Marie Colbin. Victor Kulvinskas was also a mentor. Each of his mentors were original pioneers in these fields.

Spiritual Journey

Sadguru Kedarji began his quest to understand and fully imbibe Yoga at an early age. Feeling incomplete, Kedarji began an intense spiritual journey that took him to India and Asia. Soon after, he was initiated into the lineage of Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri (recognized as a great Sage in many spiritual and religious traditions) by Muktananda Paramahamsa, and was taught what is now embodied in his unique approach, Nityananda Shaktipat Yoga. Kedarji’s spiritual journey culminated in eighteen-and-a-half years of service to this great lineage. He shares this journey with us in his spiritual autobiography, Vibration of Divine Consciousness.

His quest to master the sciences of Yoga and Wellness now complete, his seeking ended.

Social Responsibility

While living in New York City, Kedarji worked with the NYPD and then Senator Franz Leichter and Congresswoman Ruth Messinger to establish citizen block patrols to clean up crime, drugs and pornography in the mid-town theater district of Manhattan. With then Mayor Benjamin Ward and Boro Commander Ray Kelly, even amongst the criminals themselves, he became widely respected as a community leader for social responsibility.

Today his social responsibility advocacy focuses on putting an increased spotlight on the disease of greed in our society, and the ways in which we can, both individually and collectively, reverse the impact of greed on the overall quality of our lives.  Already, Sadguru Kedarji has inspired his students to take individual action that has begun to reduce this societal greed in their communities.
