My name is Pravar Obhan, I am
from India and currently living
Netherlands. I’ve been brought up with yoga and it has been my passion
for many years. As with many people from India, yoga was part of my
lifestyle. With both my parents being yoga teachers, I was introduced
to this lifestyle at a very young age.
To strengthen my knowledge and experience of the true yogic
lifestyle I have stayed at the Patanjali Yogpeeth,
Divya Yog Mandir ashram
in Haridwar, India for four years. In the ashram, the day to day
lifestyle is very basic. I woke
up around 4 in the morning, before sunrise, to take a dip in the Ganges
and practice yoga. Other activities would include having fire
ceremonies, chanting and gardening. In the
afternoon I would help in our Ayurverdic pharmacy, a place where my
passion for natural healing was further increased.
After the ashram in Haridwar I completed a four month
residential course at the Bihar school of yoga in India. In a class with 93
international students we learned all about a more holistic approach to
yoga. Focus of this course was to get closer to the original yogic way
Following these yogic
experiences, I went for Bharat bhraman,
travelling as a tour leader all over India and Nepal for 8 years.
To perfect my
teaching skills I completed the Yoga Teacher Training at the Arhanta school of
yoga in The Netherlands in 2015.
I am currently following an advanced course in Yoga Therapy with S-VYASA in Bangalore, India.
I'm looking forward to
sharing my knowledge and experience from
India with my student yogis in The Netherlands.
