A thorough understanding of the human mind allows Ilango to facilitate change at a deeper level of our thought processes

We can change our reality by changing our hardwired thinking and resulting actions. This can be achieved through deep inner-work. Ilango facilitates these changes in others, so that people can learn to create those fundamental shifts within themselves, reach their full potential, and achieve life goals easily.

Ilango is a certified life coach trained in brain-based coaching methodology designed by neuroscientist Dr. David Rock and accredited by International Coach Federation. He partners with individuals and groups to provide them a space where they can have conscious conversations about challenges and opportunities faced in career and life. By bringing out an individual’s best potential in a structured and focused way, Ilango help them achieve their desired and sometimes hidden and elusive personal and professional growth and expansion.

A seeker at heart, Ilango’s life path has led him to learn few ancient knowledge systems and meditation practices. He has a strong foundation in Yoga and Buddhist meditation practices. He is trained in BKS Iyengar, Mysore Ashtanga and classical schools of Yoga. He is a formal disciple of Zen Buddhist Master A.M.A. Samy, founder of Bodhi Zendo, and is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Buddhist Studies.

This unique combination of neuroscience-based coaching methodology and meditative training has provided Ilango with deep insights into how the human mind works which enables him to help people tap into their core authentic self. His 17-year long prior experience in the corporate sector (Information Technology), especially in various leadership roles, provides him the edge in understanding the needs and the workings of the corporate world.
