My name is Shivayogi, but I don't know why my parents named me that. When I decided to enter into the world of Yoga, my parents actually stood against me. They were not confident in my decision. I turned away from 16 years of education and came to an unfamiliar city to follow this passion.

My journey started as a fitness trainer, completing certificates in Pilates, strength and conditioning and Strong by Zumba. I worked in a well-established gym called Chisel in Bangalore. Finally, I entered into the beautiful ocean called YOGA by enrolling in a Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa certificate program in the Yoga capital of the world: Rishikesh, India.

I fell in love with yoga.

Yoga is so so beautiful, monumental and soul-bearing and I adore it. Since completing that certificate program, I have worked with more than 50 multigyms in Bangalore and conducted more than 1,000 group classes. Each week, I teach everything from workshops to personal one-on-one classes and styles including hatha, vinyasa, power and even acroyoga!

My experience, training and love for this practice enable me to teach confidently.

Yoga gave me confidence. Yoga gave me health.Yoga gave me a sound mind in a sound body.

In short, yoga gave me everything.
