Setniwas Vashist, who was born and raised in India, learned yoga at a very young age from the esteemed Guru, Dhirendera Brahmachari. He earned a certificate to teach sports yoga from NESTA when he arrived to the U.S. With over 30 years of experience and countless classes, Mr. Vashist travelled from India to America. He lived for twenty-five years in New York, establishing his company name and learning about ayurveda. With his family, Mr. Vashist then moved to Florida where he opened his yoga studio. His son, Nikhil Vashist, soon joined him in the field as both a yoga instructor and personal trainer. They both worked for two years at the West Star Gym. Mr. Vashist often went to yoga conventions and made temporary stays teaching in Poland, Thailand, Australia, The Netherlands, and South Africa. Now he is back in Florida, opening a branch of Sets Yoga in Minneola.
