From 1990 to 1994 I did a course on Theology at Vidyabhavan, Kottayam, Kerala. During these four years I was giving yoga sessions in BCM College, Amalagiri College and Mahatma Gandhi University. From the Vidyabhavan my teachers and some of my friends inspired me to write on yoga. Therefore I started to write articles on yoga for a magazine. Then in 1993 I wrote four articles on healing power of yoga for Yoga and Health magazine publish from England.
In 1993 one of the famous Newspaper Malayalamanorama published a feature about me and my Yogic life in their Sunday Magazine which made me more popular in Kerala. From 1988 onwards I am teaching different yoga modules for example: Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Power Yoga, Yogic Meditation, Relaxation Techniques and Stress Management in various universities, colleges, schools and institutions in different states of India. I had also conducted several yoga-training sessions in Germany during 1995-1997, and in Canada 1999-2005.
From 1996-1998, I was a resident staff and from 1998-2003, I was a visiting faculty of the National Centre (NBCLC). During this time a number of institutions—Vinayasadhana, Dharmaram College, Montfort College—also benefited from my training sessions.
In 1999 I started Chaitanyadhara - Center for Relaxation and Healing (A charitable Trust) to promote national integration, integral health and growth especially through Yoga and Meditation. To promote peace and happiness in the society and encourage the universal LOVE, UNITY and HAPPINESS among the people.
In 2003 I had a chance to give a Yoga training Course in the central prison of Bangalore , India for 40 young prisoners. I spent two years in Canada (2003-2005) as a yoga and spiritual animator in various places. From November 2005, I was appointed as the Yoga Instructor and Lecturer for the entire Jain Group of Institutions (JGI). In 2009 these JGI education institutions got the recognition as Jain University. October 2010 I came back to Canada. Here I wish and long to persuade my yogic vision and mission in Canada.
To drive the concept of Yoga deep into people’s mind, and to
popularize it through media, I had published three books—one in
Malayalam (1995) and the other two in English namely ‘YOGA for
Integral Health and Growth’ (1998) and ‘DEVA YOGA for wholeness
and Wellness’ (2010). Yoga is the divine path to experience the
Divine, a sacred and disciplined way to embrace sacredness and the
Sacred. It is ‘Deva Yoga’ (Deva = God, the Absolute), where
Jivatma the living individual soul and Paramatma the Divine Highest
or Universal Soul seek for divine union. I had also produced 'listen
and practice' audio CDs.
Now I am in Ottawa, Canada. I offer different Yoga modules such as: Deva Yoga - Meditative Yoga (Smooth blending of Raja Yoga and Hatha Yoga), Therapeutic Yoga - Yoga for Wholeness and Wellness, Rhythmic Yoga – For Yogic Stress management, Yoga for Executives, Work-life Balance (for corporate employees), Yoga for Seniors, Yoga for Children, Relaxation and Meditation for healing, Power Yoga - Dynamic Rejuvenating and Energizing Yoga Module, Mindful Yoga and Meditation, Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation with visualization), Prenatal Yoga and Face-to-Face online Yoga Classes.
In Ottawa, other than my own yoga courses and private yoga classes I teach at The City of Ottawa Community/recreation centres and YMCA.Next - Influence of yoga and its spirituality
