About The Teacher
Balu has got a truly unique way to transmit the Ashtanga Yoga system to his students, firm and lovable at the same time.
Balu's journey with yoga started 13 years ago when he was introduced to his mentor, Swami Kuttiyand, by his father, Rajendra Thevar. He practiced under the supervision of Swami Kuttiyand for 4 years and then became an assistant teacher for his mentor. His journey continued in Varanasi, Rishikesh and for several years in Mysore where he continued to teach and attend classes. In 2009, Balu opened his own shala, Sadhana Yoga Shala in Arambol Goa. Balu believes that our body is a gift and a vehicle that we use for our journey through this life. This journey provides an opportunity to become a better person and thereby find our true self.
