My name is PAPPU YADAV. I was born in the holy abode of LORD SHIVA, on the banks of the river GANGA/GANGES. I have always had a deep attachment to spirituality and have been fortunate to come into contact with many spiritual teachers throughout my life. Finally, SRI RAM JI MALVIYA, the holy Professor of Yoga Tantra and former Vice Chancellor of Sampurnananada Sanskrit University, Varanasi, became my GURU. He gave me the name SIDDHARTHA PAPPU and has taught me Yoga Tantra Practices, Hatha Yoga Therapy and Yogi Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
In 2009 I received my graduate degree in YOGA TANTRA from Sampurnananda Sanskrit University. The previous year I completed the certificate course in YOGA PRACTICE FOR BETTER LIVING from world famous Banaras Hindu University. In 2007 I attended VYAYAM VISHARD (Expert in Yogasana & Malkhamb) from Kashi Vyayamshala, Raj Mandir, Varanasi, one of the oldest education facilities in the city. I received the VYAYAM PATU certificate from the same institution in 1999. I have participated in seven yoga competitions, at state and national level, securing 1st place twice, 2nd place once and 3rd place twice.
I have been practicing yoga daily since I was eight years old and have twelve years experience teaching all nationalities, skill levels, ages and students with special needs. I currently teach one PRANAYAMA class and three HATHA YOGA classes daily at the SIDDHARTH YOG SEVA ASHRAM organized by the SIDDHARTH YOGA CENTER, which is on the banks of the Ganga at Mansarowar Ghat, Varanasi. Please feel welcome to practice authentic Hatha Yoga with me.
