Neil Wadhawan • California

Yoga teacher, Neil Wadhawan, was introduced to yoga philosophy by his Indian father and grew up learning about eastern philosophies, eventually receiving his B.A. in Philosophy. When he met San Francisco yoga teacher, Rusty Wells, he discovered a beautiful blend of his two loves—yoga and music— in Bhakti Flow (Vinyasa Yoga of Devotion). Neil now teaches his unique and popular musically driven classes throughout San Francisco and beyond. Neil’s playful and vigorous classes challenge you to take your practice further, while encouraging you to find a comfortable place that is uniquely your own.


As a professional percussionist in bands, Tony award winning theater companies, and as a guest lecturer on music, Neil draws on an incredibly diverse background stemming from his fascination with western and eastern musical traditions. He plays everything from jazz and rock, to Indian classical music. He believes that in any art or discipline, one can only be a great student and never a master—there is always something new to learn and the only way to continue to grow is to remain a student.
