As the years went by, the spirit of self-study, practice and observation progressed along.

We are happy to have him as yoga therapist for the CARER Program.
Karthik is medically trained in working with cancer patients and has worked with many in his practice at Arogyadhama rehabilitation centre in Bangalore and the like. His is an integrated approach toward teaching yoga, creating spaces to be aware of the Body-Mind-Spirit. The core sequence is imbibed by flow yoga style, however, one will find mostly a self-styled guidance and variations backed by the time-tested experiments of the traditional Gurus and the modern day yogis. Classical Hatha Yoga and Astanga yoga are the main themes that he teaches and the flow is an effective combination of both dynamic and gentle movements. Pranayama and Meditation techniques help the Body-Mind rejuvenation process thereby establishing stillness. He ensures that your practice is holistically effective, regardless of age, gender, and energetic ability.
