Pradeep spend two full years imbibing and living yoga at Gangadarshan, a Yoga gurukula along the banks of river Ganga in Bihar. He has now completed first 12 year phase of discipleship.
Under Shri Pattabi Jois’ AYRI, Bangalore, he gained clarity of the nuances of Ashtanga Yoga – primary Series. His Iyengar Yoga training was under Shri Arun, Bangalore, a direct disciple of Shri BKS Iyengar of Pune, India.
Pradeep is an engineering graduate by education, entrepreneur by vocation, and a Hata yogi by samskara. He draws immensely from his past experiences, a wealth of knowledge specific to Yoga, Ayurveda and Indian philosophies, bringing into each engagement an Authentic and a holistic approach.
He started practicing yoga as a seven year old, learning classical asanas from his father and later devoted full time to studying yoga, graduating M.Sc. program in Yogic sciences (from the world’s first yoga university, Bihar Yoga Bharati, Munger, India, with a university gold medal).
He has been teaching yoga in Mysore, Bangalore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Colombo, and Hyderabad and is adept at Bihar, Iyengar and Ashtanga schools of yoga. Pradeep currently heads a1000yoga and facilitates teacher training courses at the 200 hour, 500 hour levels and specialization yoga courses for Prenatal, Sports and Children.

Uma’s early experiences with yoga strictly adhered to Yogic principles that included practicing before sunrise on an empty stomach. She could not escape these classes; her father was the instructor, and she needed Yoga to battle certain health issues. She soon took a liking to Karate and eventually ended up learning and teaching Karate for 6 years in Chennai. An Arts graduate with a specialization in English Literature, she later went on to pursue an associate degree in International Business in the US where she made a home away from home. She worked there as an Internal Auditor for one of the top banks in the US for about 5 years.
When she moved back to India after 15 years, she turned to Yoga to help resolve certain health issues after her second pregnancy. Thanks to her Yoga practice, her migraines are now non-existent, cholesterol levels are in check and the unhealthy weight gain has been reduced gradually and naturally.
Uma’s yoga qualifications are extensive. She is an M.Sc in Yogic Sciences, E-RYT200, RYT500, RCYT (Children’s Yoga) and RPYT(Prenatal Yoga). “I design my classes to work slowly into classical practices with spine orientation, awareness, correction and strengthening. I like to end my classes bringing the awareness of practitioners to one simple question “how did you feel before practice and how do you feel after practice”.
Along with her teaching/TTC faculty responsibilities, Uma is a counsellor for the Teacher Training Courses at a1000yoga. She takes passionate interest in the wholesome education of her children. For Uma, Yoga means “Transformation. Looking back I can say it is transformation for the better. At the moment, it is still a transformation into the next moment.”
Indira’s earliest ‘fitness-related’ childhood memories are of her father – shaking her and her brothers’ awake everyday at the crack of dawn for a jog/swim/rowing/tennis. “Even the hapless family dog was not spared!” she says. As kids, she and her brothers despised their dad’s strict nature, but today she is deeply grateful to him for instilling a lifelong commitment to physical fitness. Her dad is her first guru – his photograph occupies a pride of place in her Yoga room. Her first encounter with Yoga was a complimentary class held in her college in Chennai. She enjoyed it thoroughly but did not pursue it – finding Jane Fonda and step aerobics so much more ‘glamorous’ and exciting. At that time, she says, ‘I had zero knowledge of just how incredible an art and science Yoga is.’ Following a Masters in Communication, Indira began a 25 year long career in Advertising. The stress – and eventually – the meaninglessness of her work led her to dive deeper into the practice of Yoga. Initially, it was about mastering the Asanas, but a couple of years later, her Ashtanga Yoga teacher introduced her to the philosophy behind the practice, and there was no looking back. With her guru’s blessings, the next several years were an ‘insane’ mix of Advertising, intense personal sadhana, and study of Yoga philosophy. Quitting advertising was, she says – inevitable. She completed her RYT 200 and 300 and has, since then, been teaching full-time at a1000yoga. In the last three years she has been on the faculty of a1000yoga’s Teacher Training Certification Courses as well. Irrespective of the ‘style’ of Yoga, her approach is to give her practitioners more than just a physical workout. “Yoga is so much more than asana – and I always attempt to include a hint of that in my classes. I think of it as scattering a handful of seeds into the earth. Who knows – one or two may sprout!”. She is one of a1000yoga’s most experienced teachers – but Indira believes her Yoga journey has only just begun. ‘My exploration of Yoga is now slowly making me a bit of a social misfit’, she says. ‘I am becoming more and more indifferent to everything the world values. I question everything – including my own reactions. I watch myself do/say/want things and think how pointless it is to do/say/want those things. It’s a crazy way to live. But I’m not turning back.’
