I was born into a life of yoga. I grew up between Europe and India and was introduced as a child to yoga through my grandparents who were on both sides yoga practitioners. My grandparents took me on his first Himalayan pilgrimage when I was just seven years old and I have been exposed to the world of yogis eversince. Most of my family still live in India and I have been travelling there regularly for over thirty years in my pursuit of yoga. I has worked closely in apprenticeship with two elders in the line of Siddha and Ayurvedic systems of healing and hold much knowledge in the use of herbs, astrology, rituals, mantras and bodywork among other things. I have been working in this line and helping people with the implementation of these techniques for over 20 years to successfully overcome mental and physical problems, from chronic pain to alcoholism. My healing and yoga work often sees me travelling to Eastern Europe to give workshops and healing sessions. In Latvia I lived and taught for a period of years and have become one of the most respected teachers in the country. My travels and yoga workshops in Eastern Europe continue to benefit people in deprived circumstances. In recent years I have been living and teaching yoga in Germany where I have regular students and teach intensives to aspiring teachers. As part of my training, I also undertook a deep study of more Modern systems of yoga taught in the West, including a Anusara teachers Certificate and an Ashtanga primary series certificate studying closely with celebrity teachers, such as Anna Forrest of Forrest yoga, David life of Jivamukti yoga, Gurumukh Kaur Khalsa of Kundalini Yoga, Senior Iyengar teachers, Shandoor Remmete of Shadow yoga, and Mark Whittwell of the Yoga of Heart foundation, who has become a close friend of mine. These formal studies and encounters have all left their impression on me, but his teachings are deeply rooted in the more Shamanic traditions of the mystical Babas and Fakirs of India, with whom I have been studying closely for over thirty years now.
