Robert Boustany is the founder of Pralaya yoga and has over 40 years of international experience teaching yoga classes, seminars and trainings. He is a physicist by education which makes him known for his extensive knowledge of anatomy and the physics of asanas. Energetically and anatomically he can explain postural alignment.


Robert studied many of the esoteric forms of yoga, Tai Chi Chuan, Qigong and different types of self-care modalities extensively, which led to his extensive knowledge of self-care. This is the base from which he has been teaching yoga teachers since the early 70's. His philosophical perspective comes from the Advaita Vedanta, which is based on physics, detailed observation and an understanding of perception and language.


Robert trained with some outstanding yogis and swamis, including BKS Iyengar, several senior Iyengar teachers, Billie Gollnick, Ana Forrest, Dr. Vasant Lad, David Swenson, Doug Swenson, Swami Muktananda, Swami Ranganathananda, Vethathiri Yogiraj Maharishi and Swami Satchitananda. Robert is also trained by several well-known masters in Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong.


Right now he is still developing his knowledge and practice with his holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda and the Hansavedas Self Enquiry Fellowship.
