Dr Shrikrishna skilfully leads participants into
Meditative states through Pranayama, yoga philosophy and inner inquiry.
Many of the Pranayama and Meditation techniques require sitting.
Participants should have prior experience of sitting quietly for periods
of at least 20-30 minutes.
Dr Shrikrishna was born to a father who was a close colleague of
Swami Kuvalayananda (one of the foremost pioneers of modern yoga).
Dr Shrikrishna grew up in an atmosphere saturated with yogic culture.
He qualified as a medical doctor and took a PhD on the physiological
effects of Pranayama at the prestigious All India Institute of Medicine.
After graduating, he succeeded his father as Director of the Kaivalyadhama
Institute of Yogic Health in Mumbai, where he developed a flourishing
programme for training yoga teachers and therapists, as well as daily
yoga therapy sessions for people with health problems.
In addition to Dr Shrikrishna’s knowledge of medicine, physiology and yoga
practice, he has an excellent mastery of Sanskrit and yogic literature, both
ancient and modern, upon which he draws as an aid to conveying the deeper
insights of yoga. His emphasis is on awareness and experience, rather than
theoretical knowledge. This rare combination of experience, knowledge and
skills gives a breadth and depth to his teaching, which is probably unique.
Dr Shrikrishna sees yoga as acting on two levels: as a science of health
paving the way to positive health and personal development, and as a
facilitator for entry to transcendental transpersonal states. Recently he
retired from his position at the Kaivalyadhama Institute in order to devote
himself to his own Sadhana and teaching.
