Gaurav is an active theatre artist and ardent lover of Yoga. After completing his Diploma in Theatre skills, he pursued that field for few years. He soon realized that his heart is elsewhere and started following that inner call. His exploration took him on a sojourn of 2 years of intense pursuit of various Yoga traditions in India, especially in Rishikesh.
He explored various Yoga schools and teachers in Rishikesh. He completed his 200-hour Yoga Teachers Training from Rishikul Yogashala, Rishikesh. This course is recognized by Yoga Alliance making him a RYT200. He also studied Iyengar Yoga under Guru Rudra Dev, a direct disciple of BKS.Iyengar.
During his stay in Rishikesh, he kept getting exposed to teachings of Swami Rama through various sources. Unknowingly or as destiny would have it, he developed an admiration for Swami Rama and his teachings on Yoga and Meditation.
In due course, he met Guru Jyothi Pattabhiram a disciple of Swami Rama at Tadakeshwar. She initiated him into the Himalayan Tradition of Yoga and Meditation. Gaurav has been studying under her the Himalayan Yoga and Meditation practices as well as Srividya mantra sadhana as in Srividyaranya tradition.
Gaurav aspires to give the right knowledge to every student who struggles to find the right teacher and is lost in confusion. For him quality matters more than quantity. He is passionate to serve the Guru lineages by being an instrument to spread their message to humanity.
