Life of Yoga Master Sharat Arora
Master Teacher Sharat Arora was born in 1953 and discovered yoga in 1978. He went through intensive, full-time training for seven years with Guruji BKS Iyengar at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Institute in Pune and assisted Iyengar on all levels of Asana classes. However, more significant in his development as a practitioner and teacher was his involvement in the daily therapy sessions, serving countless patients. His fusion of this experience, with his extensive study of medicine, greatly influenced his continually-evolving Yoga technique and sharpened his unique Yoga therapy skills.
During this time of his growth and transformation, he was living in a Buddhist community and became interested in meditation, particularly Vipassana. With this added insight, he made a breakthrough in understanding what Yoga techniques were meant to bring about in himself and others. He was further inspired by the teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti and later by HWL Poonja (the linage of Ramanamaharishi), leading to a more holistic practice and Yogic life. Master Teacher Sharat Arora's clear and precise instructions, constant and detailed attentiveness, focus on providing students with the tools to practice and explore independently, and therapeutic knowledge for treating ailments and injuries, are combined with a spiritual depth that makes his teaching unique. He speaks French, German and English fluently and has lived and traveled extensively in Europe.
