Dr Kumar’s synergistic approach to yoga has evolved from a lifelong enquiry into the diverse traditions of North and South India, Tibet, Burma and Sri Lanka. He draws on his experience of studying within numerous schools of Hatha yoga and traditions of meditation since the age of twelve and from his personal experience of repairing and rehabilitating his own body through yoga, following a serious accident. As an award-winning government scientist, he approaches yoga as an applied science to completely free the mind and body, bringing together ancient wisdom with the most up to date research.
