ParitoshParitosh’s introduction to Yoga began in the foothills of the Himalayas in 1989, under the guidance of Brahmachari Sri Rudra Gowda of Rishikesh, at the Yoga Study Centre. Soon, he was under the tutelage of Swami Rama in 1993 and was initiated into the Himalayan tradition by Swami Veda Bharati. Until 2003, Yoga was not at the forefront of Paritosh’s life, as he was working in the garment/apparel industry till 2003. “I always found myself deeply attracted to Yoga and spirituality. The love for Yoga inspired me to be a Yoga teacher.” Paritosh started teaching yoga full time after he received his Diploma in Yoga Education from Kaivalyadham in Lonavala. He taught Yoga at the Himalayan Centre, Singapore and Yogazone in Kuala Lumpur and was teaching and training future teachers in KL till 2012. His approach to Yoga is a combination of three traditions, the himalayan tradition for its spirituality, meditation and subtle practices; Iyengar for its precision in asana practice and Kaivalyadham for shatkarmas or cleansing practices. His approach to class comes from his own Sadhana. “I only teach what I have personally experienced.” Paritosh believes that the teacher should strike a fine balance between what the practitioner wants, and what they need. His classes ensure that there is something for everyone, from beginners to regular practitioners, he aims to provide options. “I want my students to be educated enough so that they can practice all by themselves and they don’t have to rely solely on the studio
sessions.” Apart from Yoga, Paritosh loves to play the guitar and is trained in western classical guitar. He used to have a back injury that greatly affected his neck and hip joint. “I healed it purely through Yoga, so I’m quite experienced in treating the issues related to the spine.”

“Yoga is being joyful unconditionally.”

Make Yoga part of Life

The principles laid out in Patanjali’s yoga sutras dating back to 500 B.C. are still very relevant today, even in our modern information world. Yoga has evolved a lot from the days of Patanjali; it has taken different forms to meet the varying needs of practitioners all along its journey. Yoga continues to accept all changes, like the ocean accepts the river, absorbs, assimilates and grows. (A distinctive feature of sanaatan dharma of India)
