Instructor Biography

Nishant Jain, Spirituality Scientist at Udemy

For the last 14 years, I have been an humble student of yoga and meditation with primary aim to find ways to push limits of human productivity and happiness. I have read several books on different school of thoughts on meditation including completion of Vipassana meditation course where one has to take vow of silence for 10 days. With so many different meditation techniques, it is challenging to fully grasp the fundamental concepts of spirituality. And hence the need for a course to cover the basics of meditation. I have utilised my years of research and insights in the field of meditation to create a course having the gist of my findings which I am sure would immensely benefit the students.
