Newspaper Article on Yoga after Surgery

The Divine Life Society was my very first visit a few years back to discuss my interest in Yoga but I joined Yoga Study Centre for general classes and learnt Yoga under the guidance of Brahmacharya Rudra Dev – a senior Iyengar teacher. Later I joined Omkarananda Ganga Sadan Patanjala Yoga Kendra for 8 days intensive Yoga course under the guidance of Usha Devi and re-join later for general classes for more than 15 days. Both teachers are well qualified, strict and with huge experience. It was like joining a school again. Rishikesh is also known as the Capital of Yoga. Shivananda Ashram is one of the oldest for Yoga.
