A former teacher of Adaptive Yoga classes at the Dr. Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease, Bhaskar now shares his wisdom and expertise in Yoga of the Heart® Cardiac and Cancer Certification Trainings. Bhaskar has been co-teaching Yoga of the Heart® internationally since its inception in 1998, leading adaptive asana classes that allow experienced yogis to return to the beginner’s mind as they delve deeply into a meditative physical and spiritual practice.

In addition to his passion for Yoga, Bhaskar also has a deep love of nature and serves as a kayak guide. He leads annual Yoga and Kayaking workshops on the James River at Yogaville. Bhaskar and his wife, Nischala Devi, founded the Abundant WellBeing Temple, a non-profit organization dedicated to embracing the one light in all.
