Avisek Majumdar

Photographer And Yoga Instructor

My name is Avisek, and I’m one of the contributing photographers on Bucharest Expat. As you can see by some of the imagery on this site, I have a passion for capturing great moments. Before we get into that, let me tell you a little about myself. I decided some time ago to expand my horizons beyond India. I’m a Yoga Instructor – something that seemed natural considering the naturalistic ways that I choose to live my life – so this is a career path that I had my eye on. I wanted to focus on opening a Yoga studio, and had identified two potential markets – Hong Kong and Romania. Hong Kong, a bustling city, would have allowed for quite a bit of income and quite a heavy workload for Yoga instruction, however the big negative there would have been the competition. The market for Yoga studios there was almost completely saturated. This was not the case in Romania. I looked at Timisoara (sorry Bucharest) as my wife is from there. Timisoara had a need for Yoga Studios believe it or not. This lifestyle was beginning to develop in Romania, and opening a studio here would keep my costs low and put me ahead of the growth curve.

So, fast forward from 2008 to today, and I am now running Yoga Classes at centres between Timisoara and Bucharest, Romania. On the weekends (soon to be more weekdays), I take the train from Timisoara to Bucharest where I am pleased to be one of the only (if not the only) Indian Yoga Instructor In Bucharest. I teach Yoga (not only meditation, but a blend of postures – 100% traditional Yoga* – great for people in Bucharest seeking a Yoga Instructor). Within Bucharest, you can find me at the Stejarii Country Club. The Stejarii Country Club in Bucharest has a Spa facility – a perfect complimentary ambiance for traditional Yoga Instruction. You can also find me at the Happy Feet yoga center, or Bihar School Of Yoga. Overall, bringing my 18 years of experience to the table with Yoga instruction and introducing traditional yoga to the Romanian marketplace has been a rewarding challenge. The time I have put into this has returned great rewards – allowing me to meet incredible people and giving me the freedom to pursue photography in my spare time. If you’d like to speak with me about scheduling a session or just speaking about Yoga and available options, please send me an email anytime. Or, if you’re in Bucharest then drop by on the weekends at the Stejarii Country Club and Spa and ask for Avisek. I hope to see you soon!
