Yogi Vishnu Panigrahi has been steeped in spiritual endeavors since childhood. As a young boy, his grandfather advised him to meditate and pursue spirituality from an honest and pure perspective. A Radhe-Krishna Temple was constructed by his grandfather in their village in Odisha, India where Vishnu would frequently serve food and water to wandering sadhus. In the larger town ten kilometers away from his village, young Vishnu would skip school and attend the Satsang (spiritual company and discourse of the saintly) of several swamis, counting among them was Swami Avdheshanand Giri of Haridwar. He found a Kalyana-Mitra (a friend on the noble path) in a boyhood friend who would arrange to meet with him at 3 a.m. in secluded places away from the village. Here they would join for meditation and chant "Mohamudgaram," a famous hymn by Adi Shankaracharya, to dispel their fears and gain vairagya (intense inclination to renunciation).
On Sundays and holidays, Vishnu would serve the impoverished people at the nearby hospital by washing them and taking care of those waiting and recovering from treatment. There was always a lack of nurses to care for the patients who had to lay on the cement floor with bare facilities. One day, young Vishnu met an old man who had a horrible odor with small worms attached to his legs. He was neglected by the doctors for a long time but eventually, his legs were treated and bandaged. For a few days, Vishnu took it upon himself to care for the man by cleaning his beard and taking care of his every need. The man was so grateful and — driven to happiness the old man blessed young Vishnu.

Born in the UK to an Indian family, I was drawn to the path of spirituality from a young age, but it was life's mis-steps and experiences that gradually made the call from my soul loud enough to leave behind my life in the UK and return to India.
Yoga was the path that lifted the veil for me to live life once again in the present moment. I quickly immersed myself in the wisdom of yoga, learning from many of the great masters of the Himalayas, qualifying as a Kundalini Yoga teacher and going on to master Sound Healing, Cacao Rituals and Reiki which I love to bring into my Kundalini practice. My life a service to humanity.
As Kundalini Teacher of Bali Yoga Retreat, my vision is to share the beauty and power of the wisdom that changed my life with you.

Considering traveling to Bali for a retreat?
One of the best vacations of my life. Not just a relaxing one but something which gave me a new perspective and helped me to get over the trumas and pain. Yogi Vishnu Ji is a world class trainer with a deep knowledge of Dharma and Yogic Kriya. The staff is very lovely, they often used to check us if we are comfortable and enjoying ourselves. Set up in a serene location, you will be surrounded by nature and good people. Vegan food is deliciously prepared, especially breakfast. I was more than happy to meet like minded people and attain the pure guidance of Teachers.
I had a great time at Bali Yoga Retreat. The staff is very supportive and teachers are very well versed with their courses. They all are very open for discussions so there’s no such bar and you can have thoughtful conversations with them over their subject or in life in general. Very delightful and loveable moments!!
Undoubtedly a life changing experience as they promised. Initially, I was a bit reluctant as I’d never practised yoga and I was making booking online on the basis of my internet search. Honestly, all the money and time is worth this experience. I took the 3 days weekend retreat at the Bali Yoga Retreat and it was so refreshing that now I'm planning to do a longer course. It was a beautiful escape from mundane life. I enjoyed the yoga sessions, very well planned for beginners and for students with short time. The therapies and vegan food is like a treat that you are looking for.
I attended the Tantra Hatha Yoga retreat which is 5 days long. The practise is more focused on mental exercises than physical. I was so relaxed after the first session itself. Working in the corporate, it churn out the peace and this retreat helps you to regain it. Kudos to their hospitality and love. Hope to see them soon for the next retreat.
