Gaurav started practicing Yoga when he was 8 years old. Like most Yoga students, he began by learning Yoga poses. By 10 years of age he was competing in Yoga championships. He won a few Yoga championships in India. But his quest for Yoga did not end at Yoga poses. Gaurav learned “pranayama” breathing exercise. Yoga poses coupled with awareness of right breathing, brings awesome results in your fitness and overall relaxation. We invite you at Gyan Yoga to feel an authentic style of Yoga practice. You can’t forget to breathe in Gyan Yoga classes.


Rishi started practicing yoga at the age of 8. At the age of 12 he underwent formal training and in the next fours years won two regional annual yoga competitions. He learned Pranayama can build a healthy body and mind. He came to believe, yoga can not only calm your mind but can also help you develop a strong will, enabling you to do anything. This realization started Rishi’s studies in meditation, chanting and deep concentration techniques. Study of meditation led to the study of mantras, sets of words repeated in your mind during meditations.


With 2 yoga champions at home, it was obvious to practice Yoga. I started practicing Yoga with my brothers at the age of 14. Apart from fitness I was interested in spiritual and restorative aspect of Yoga. No other place is better then Himalayan Mountains to go deep in the restorative and spiritual side of yoga. My quest for Yoga took me to the source of river Ganges “Gomukh”. Yoga and meditation left me with nothing but an admiration for the art and science of Yoga.
