He utilizes Yoga as a stand-alone as well as complementary therapy for optimizing the health and wellness of his clients, for easing symptoms associated with disease, and more…. He trained under doyens of Yoga in India for almost four decades. He is a Yoga Therapist in Canada. 

This program is a gist of the knowledge and wisdom gathered from pre-operative, operative and post-operative management of those thousands of FNAC’s, Modified Radical Mastectomies, Lumpectomies and Reconstructive procedures, monitoring of progress of patients through chemotherpay and radiotherapy and in follow-up, combined with active teaching of Yoga and Yoga Therapy over all these years especially applied to specific problems. All care has been taken to include each piece of vital information in this program and other related programs, to be taught in a stepped manner. This program is as incisive, accurate and precise as the proverbial surgical scalpel at work.

The program assumes nothing and provides knowledge-base right from the beginning, starting with applied breast anatomy, and builds it up further. This program takes care all important and scientifically relevant factors and explores how the nano science of yoga can aid recovery at all levels – mind, body and beyond. Full of practical information applicable to all levels and stages of disease, this program is designed to make a difference
