“The workshop was everything I hoped for and more, Dr Kumar has such a huge depth of knowledge and experience I would highly recommend anyone on their Yogic journey to attend his lectures/workshops or retreats as they will not find such profound knowledge anywhere else.” –Joan Keig, yoga teacher
About Dr Kumar
Dr Kumar’s synergistic approach to yoga has evolved from a lifelong immersion in the diverse traditions of both north and south India. His teachers include Krishnamacharya and Swami Vishnudevananda as well as unknown but equally accomplished Himalayan masters. He draws on his experience of studying within eighty six schools of hatha yoga and meditation since the age 12, approaching it always as an applied science to completely free the mind and body
Dr Kumar has taught thousands of people in India as a public service, focusing on public health and yoga awareness workshops that address the growing levels of lifestyle related diseases. For this voluntary service he has been awarded the Rajiv Gandhi Excellence Award. He runs yoga teacher training programs in India and broadcasts a yoga program on the Indian television channel ‘Sakshi’. In the UK he has been teaching yoga courses and meditation retreats since 2008 and has recently led International Yoga Day events at the United Nations in Geneva. Dr Kumar’s knowledge derives not only from his scientific background, but also from his personal experience of repairing and rehabilitating his own body through yoga, following a serious accident. His mastery of meditation, honouring the lineage of Patanjali is central to his teaching. He has studied meditation in Hindu, Yoga, Mahayana and Theravada Buddhist schools including monastic traditions in Thailand, Burma and Sri Lanka. He reads Sanskrit and Pali and has sourced and translated rare texts, exploring in particular the relationship between Yoga, Buddhism and Vedanta.
