Abhishek Guru was born and raised in Chennai, a coastal city in South India famous for its spicy cuisine and expansive beaches. He has studied at prestigious institutions including IIT Madras, IIM Calcutta and The University of Sydney.
From an early age, being a bit of a wild spirit, he didn’t seem to find fulfilment in most of the options that life offered him. When he was introduced to a yoga program designed by Sadhguru at Isha Foundation, this offered him a glimpse into the unbounded nature of existence and gave him an opportunity to do something meaningful – to raise awareness about yoga in its purest form.
After volunteering at Isha’s Australian centers where he deepened his spiritual practises, he undertook a 21-week (1750 hour) Isha Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program at the Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore, India, which he successfully completed in December 2013. In addition to teaching for Isha Foundation, he also runs Yoga Sadhana, School of Classical Hatha Yoga, which he founded in February 2014.
He has taught in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra and also in Hong Kong. Believing that yoga is a solution to all the world’s problems, he has dedicated his life to connecting seekers to this sacred science.
