About Sri Sudhir Tiwari:
Sri Sudhir Tiwari is the eldest son of our beloved and highly respected teacher Sri O.P. Tiwari. Sudhir was brought up at Kaivalyadham Yoga Institute, in Lonavala, India, amidst rich traditional yogic heritage of Swami Madhavdasji Maharaj, Swami Kuvalyanandaji and Swami Digambarji. Swami Digambarji initiated Sudhir in 1981 and accepted him as a disciple. Sudhir received his primary and advanced Yogic and Ayurvedic training from Swami Digambarji which included the study of traditional texts, mantra yoga, fire ceremony, pranayama and various aspects of adhyatm (spiritual) yoga. Sudhir also learnt pranayama and Hathapradipika from his father. When you meet Sudhir, you will know he has lived and breathed yoga his whole life. He is such a humble, yet energetic and enthusiastic teacher with a mastery and knowledge of yoga you won´t be able to find very often. In his workshops you cannot only explore the tradition but also the scientific reasoning behind why we do the yogic practices.
