Hailing from Gadag, Karnataka in India, Basava has been practicing Yoga for the past 6 years. His motivation to start stemmed from the lost of his beloved grandma to bronchial asthma. He learnt that Yoga could help people with this condition, and that it could have helped her as well.
He soon got the opportunity to practise it during his college days and it was also beneficial to him. Besides reading, Yoga became his other passion. To help others lead a healthy and peaceful life, he thus pursued a degree in yogic science.
Being in Singapore for the past one year, he hopes to help others better their lives and improve their well-being.
