Experience in preventive yoga
I was introduced to the world of yoga 8 years ago after a decade of suffering and pain due to a rare auto-immune disorder, medically known as Ankylosing spondylites.
With each passing year I am being pulled into a lifelong disability at a rapid speed. I realised the universe has its own way of leading us closer to our goal in life when I started practicing Iyengar Yoga in the year 2011. I was lucky to have the best yogic gurus of the world, at Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute, to teach me the intricacies of healing through therapeutic yoga. As I received the benefits of therapeutic yoga after experiencing a tremendous change in my condition, I decided to share my knowledge with the world and heal those that are suffering the way I did for many years.Therapeutic Yoga not only helped me in my condition but also showed me a path of healing through the unconventional methods of Yoga.Presently I am teaching preventive yoga and injury recovery at Ganga Yogshala, Rishikesh. I have successfully helped my students recover from their injuries and in bringing hope back into their heart after years of pain and suffering..
