I was born in small village of Western Part of India. My mother and father are farmers, my mother was very strict about how we should behave and cultivate good habits since my childhood and that was the beginning of learning yoga in my life which I am realising now. Of course I wasn’t so happy that time but today I salute my mother to start teaching so many important aspect of human life in such an early age. I was quite naughty during my school days, has been wonderer exploring every part of our area day and night with friends. I was not so good of focusing my mind on academic area in the beginning but thanks to my father advice had learnt lesson the importance of knowledge and how it can change our life. My life changed when I first participated in running in high school and that’s how I begin to become discipline in life since then I have been a good student, son, brother and friend. I have been athlete during my school and college days and won many medals in long distance running and other sports.
My yoga education journey started when I was doing my Physical Education course where I saw students practicing and study in the same university. I inquired and found out that there is oldest institute in the world known as “KAIVALYADHAMA YOGA COLLEGE AND ASHRAM” located in Lonavala near Mumbai and I decided to apply for it and luckily I got an invitation to join the course for 1 years.
Kaivalyadhama is very spiritual place where I was able to calm down and focus on study and inner feeling. We had such a tight schedule since early morning from 5 am till 7 pm every day next 10 months. There is amazing library with thousands book on yoga so we had lot of good resources of learning traditional and scientific research on yoga. We studied yoga in depth and understood the purpose of yoga as a universal knowledge to uplift the human life at the best. We studied various subjects like
- Principles and Fundamentals Of Yoga
- Introduction to Traditional Yoga Texts
- Hathayogic Texts; Yoga & Cultural Synthesis & Value Education
- Applications Of Yoga – I (Anatomy & Physiology & Diet)
- Applications Of Yoga – II (Yoga & Mental Health)
- Communication & Teaching Practice
I started my career as a yoga teacher in one of the international school where I had developed yoga syllabus for entire school. After short period working in school I had gone to work in the Himalayas with one the best hotel in India. In the hotel we had made yoga programmes with specific need such as detoxifying, rejuvenating, back pain, stress relief etc. yoga had become very popular during my tenure with the hotel. I had training for spa management, massage therapies, salon, fitness, Ayurveda etc. I worked in different hotels and resort across India and was quite well known in Indian wellness industry. Even during my career I kept doing distance study and achieved Master’s in Yogic Science and Naturopathy. I have also studied various therapy education such as Naturopathy, Ayurveda, Water Therapy, Sound and Vibration therapy etc.
I worked with hotel industry around 12 years than realised that there are so many people from different countries come to India about learning yoga so I should travel out of India and share my technical knowledge with the world that is how my global journey begun.
My first trip was in South Korea where I went with my teacher to teach yoga in one university and it was very good experience. We had also gone to Singapore as well. I started travelling my own and visited to Bulgaria, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Turkey, Nepal before I came to Montenegro. When I was in Bulgaria one of my friend suggested me to come Montenegro and see the possibilities of staying here I came to Montenegro and realised this is the place where I should be there for long time. After lot of struggle for my visa and working permit finally I have managed to stay here last 3 years.
Montenegro is such an amazing place with lot of nature around which makes so suitable for yoga practice. I went Camp GRAB once to join in sky marathon and I loved it so much and I felt this place would be an amazing location to spend time with doing yoga practice. This year in June with the help of Nature Lovers Montenegro we had such a life changing weekend where we shared and expand our consciousness to make more positive. We spent our days in healthy lifestyle having 2 session for practice and rest days while discussing about yoga philosophy.
We decided to have another event after summer thus our new upcoming event from 23-25 November is designed with having different yoga practice, India Vegetarian Food and lots of discussion about how to live healthy and peaceful life. We welcome all of you to join and expand your knowledge about yoga and healthy lifestyle. Looking forward to see you all.
