It all then began with doing a Hatha Yoga Teachers Training Course at the renowned yoga School Kevalyadham in Pune and then followed with practice at the Sivananda Ashram in Rishikesh. After completing the teacher's training in Pune, he got introduced to the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, which made him connect to himself in the deepest way spiritually, his discipline and perseverance helped him achieve mastery over Ashtanga Vinyas Yoga Series 1 & 2 with a strong foundation in Hatha Yoga. After being a student for more than 5 years he started teaching yoga in the year 2008 in Rishikesh, China, Japan, Thailand & Vietnam and ever since this has become his sole identity, he is well known for his unique way of teaching Ashtanga Yoga by keeping the roots of traditional yoga.
