Founder of SOMA® Breath
Niraj Naik is one of the world’s most sought-after breathwork instructors, Mindvalley’s resident breathwork expert, and founder of the SOMA Breath school with 1,700+ instructors globally.
A former practicing pharmacist, Niraj traded conventional medicine for holistic healing as a way to overcome ulcerative colitis: an ‘incurable’ autoimmune condition only made worse by the side-effect-laden medication prescribed to him.
Niraj found his cure through a combination of Ayurveda, yoga, nutrition, self-hypnosis, music therapy, and breathwork: a formula he and his instructors have perfected, and now share globally through the SOMA Breath school’s retreats and workshops.
Niraj’s breathwork and music sessions are a crowd favorite at Mindvalley events: and through this program, we’re thrilled to present his signature teachings to an even wider audience.
