He used to visit Himalayan pilgrimages with his family and these spiritual journeys, seeing sages standing in yogic postures on sacred riverbanks, inspired him from an early age and sow a seed to pursue a yogic life. As he grew older, he started practicing yoga to lead a healthy and balanced life. He had an unquenchable thirst to learn more and traveled on his own to ashrams in the North and South of India.
