Soorya Ray Resels & Jack Resels



We’ve been on a Yoga/Meditation journey since 1971. At the International Meditation Institute, Himalayas, India, we trained in and taught Yoga Science, Vedant Philosophy, and the Benefits and Practice of Meditation for over 20 years. We see Yoga as an evolving discipline of how to live in stability in an unstable world. We continue to meditate daily and practice yoga and breathing techniques for inner and outer flexibility and well-being. 

We have done extensive training in the Enlightenment Intensive and Clearing techniques and have offered Enlightenment Intensive retreats and workshops in the Vancouver area.

In Vancouver, we are on the faculty of Open Door Yoga and teach the Philosophy of Yoga as part of their 200 hour Hatha Teacher Training Program.  What delights us is hearing from our students their new awarenesses and insights as they discover how to relate key ancient universal principles to their contemporary lives. Our students enjoy applying the yogic principles that promote in-the-moment presence, contentment, and self-responsibility. They experience themselves as part of a living legacy.

Our own evolving relationship of 40+ years has also been a great teacher for us. It has inspired us to discover what makes relationship work and to become Certified Conscious Loving and Living Coaches (Hendricks Institute).

We continue to both learn and teach as spiritual mentors and life and relationship coaches here on Bowen Island, where we have recently moved and now enthusiastically live.

For us, happiness is an inside job, and so we delight in discovering new applications of ancient wisdom principles. It’s all about adding greater perspective to life’s challenges and being willing to grow by facing each situation with ever-increasing awareness and humour.
