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.

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.”
It was in San Francisco in 2008, that Nishara conducted her first Yoga class, at the Sivananda Ashram Centre. She was initially nervous, but "being an Indian, with the 'exotic' looks paid off." While she used to go to the Gym and also do Aerobics, there was something missing. She used to work in Public relations, and soon realized that it was not really her calling. "A corporate job was not my cup of tea". She started learning Yoga in 2005 and started teaching in 2008. She spezializes in Hata and Sivananda. She has also completed her Advanced Teacher Training Course (ATTC) at the Sivananda Ashram at Neyyar Dam. Her shortness of breath and carpel tunnel syndrome are both in check with the regular practice of Yoga. She truly embodies the youthfulness of Yoga, as no one would believe her age, even if she told you.
