Our pranayama seminars are
led by Dr. Shrikrishna Bhushan Tengshe. He was born and brought up in a culture imbued with yoga, growing up
at one of the oldest Indian centers for Yoga Research and Therapy - the
Kaivalyadhama Institute in Lonavla. After qualifying as a medical
doctor, Dr. Shrikrishna also obtained a Ph.D. from the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS),
having conducted research on the Neurophysiological effects of Pranayama for his thesis. Subsequently, succeeding his
father as Secretary and Chief Medical Officer of the Kaivalyadham Institute in Mumbai, Dr. Shrikrishna led the institute
for some decades. Since his retirement he is focussing on his own practice and Sadhana and is especially devoted to the
advancement of spiritual development. He instructs yoga teachers and spiritual seekers worldwide in the field of
pranayama and meditation. He is official instructor of the Union of German Yoga Teachers (BDY) and author of the book
"Essence of Pranayama".
Dr. Shrikrishna is not only instructing the techniques of pranayama practice in a very precise manner, but also
teaches the subtle essence of the philosophical and psychological principles of a yoga path that is based on an authentic
background of the living tradition from India and which leads far beyond the mere physical practice of body-, breathing-
and meditation methods. His humourous way of teaching combines mindful precision with the embodyment of deep experience.

sensitivity as well as through the deepened awareness that evolve out of the yoga practice, one is able to lift the whole
field of pranic activity into the area of consciousness, and by that we can learn to regulate these activities in the
"That leads to a complete transformation of the individual consciousness through that we can experience our own
inner state as nothing else but the clear and unconditioned consciousness that is not blurred by the concepts of time
and space. This is the ultimate goal of any yogic practice."
"Yoga methods are not meant as an instant solution for several problems of your own life. The abilities that you
can learn through this practices have to be converted to the rest of your existence and to be integrated in all other
aspects of your life. This is the path, by which you can start living your life in a meaningful way."
