About Gudjon Bergmann

Gudjon Bergmann was born on December 24, 1972, in Reykjavik, Iceland, where he spent the early years of his career in the music industry. After he was introduced to yoga in 1996, he turned his life around and began focusing on helping others through smoking cessation seminars, yoga, stress management, meditation, and more. In addition to completing yoga teacher training programs with Yogi Shanti Desai (1997-1998) and Yogi Hari (2004), Bergmann went through an interfaith minister training with All Faiths Seminary International in 2017 and has since been awarded for his work in the field.

Bergmann has written thirty books, trained thousands of people (in-person and online), and helped dozens of aspiring authors write and self-publish their books. He moved from Iceland to the USA in 2010 and became a US Citizen in 2013. He lives in Kyle, just south of Austin in Texas.

In addition to writing books and columns for Patheos and Medium, Bergmann writes music and nurtures his deep interest in humanism, spirituality, and the world's religions.
