At the age of 13 Pankaj began his yoga journey in his birth place, the holy city of Varanasi and when he turned 15 he began teaching and sharing the ancient knowledge of Yoga. His teaching style is inspired by the Bihar School of Yoga where he completed his first yoga training with his guru. He spent many years with different yogis to experience the yogic lifestyle. Later on, Pankaj participated in yoga competitions, where contestants demonstrate transitions, skills and alignment in asanas. Pankaj won the Yoga Championships in Varanasi held by the All India Cultural Association in 2003 and 2006.
From his past experience he developed a passion for proper alignment in the asanas and Pankaj teaches Hatha Yoga with focus on adjustments. This method allows his students to experience the postures with the full benefits. As long as you are open and honest about yourself Pankaj will train you to learn how to align yourself in the asanas and listen to your body to reach your full potential. The Art of Alignment class with Pankaj is students favorite and for a good reason. In a very detailed and practical way Pankaj goes through each of the main Asanas to learn how to be aligned in the asanas and how to adjust students.
Pankaj began working with foreigners in 2003 and has a great understanding of the imbalances in the modern human mind and body. He challenges students to overcome mental and physical blockages to help to bring back balance into people's life.
