Yogi Anant is born in a small village in Himalaya, near Holy river of Ganga. Even as a little boy, he had his first meditative expiriences. Feeling that meditation is his natural state, he enjoyed spending time in nature. Whatever he would do, he would do it with total awareness and peace. He felt this meditative state of inner silence and serenity since he was really young. He felt and he knew that we are much more than just a human body; that we are, after all, spiritual and creative beings with almighty potential and power within ourselves. He was always interested in spiritual themes about development of human beings on every level. Inspired by many yogis in Himalaya, he was interested in every ancient yoga tehnique about discovering the deep peace and harmony in human body and mind. Every day, he complements his knowledge about yoga and holistic health by learning through many books and seminars, and of course his own sadhana daily practice. As he states 'Yoga is in my blood', and he knows very well that only awereness in every single moment can bring love, peace and health, what we were given by our birth.
