“Yoga is more than just an asana practice.
Since Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences, Sanjay believes that to get the most benefit from a Yoga asana practice, one must try and incorporate all the 8 limbs of Ashtanga Yoga and live a Sattvic life and follow a Sattvic Ayurvedic diet. 

Sanjay was exposed to Yoga and Ayurveda having grown up in a traditional Hindu family in Bangalore/Mysore, India. He studied engineering and lived in Boston, USA for 25 years before quitting the corporate world and moving to Munich, Germany as a freelance photographer. 

In 2011, Sanjay started studying Ashtanga Yoga in Boston, USA with George Whiteside and Jean Cho. From 2012, he studied at the KPJAYI (Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute), Mysore, India under the guidance of Sri Sharath Jois, spending 3-4 months at the shala each year. In 2017, he was authorized to teach Ashtanga Yoga (KPJAYI Level 1) by Sri Sharath Jois.

Sanjay has many years of experience in Ayurvedic cooking learned from his family, self-study and his own personal experience following an Ayurvedic diet to supplement his yoga practice. He has been studying Ayurveda with Dr. Padmini Ranganathan in Mysore, India for the past 12 years. From his own experience, he found that using Ayurveda for healing has greatly helped his Ashtanga Yoga practice and his health.  He enjoys teaching Ashtanga Yoga, basic principles of Ayurveda and Ayurvedic cooking. He has been studying the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi and Advaita Vedanta since 2013.“
