Shekhar is a great combination of humbleness, authenticity and honesty and this reflects in his yoga teaching too. He don’t believe in hushing and rushing students to extensive yoga asans but always tries to make a strong base for their learning by consecutively teaching asans and pranayam which are of beginner level. This approach is highly appreciated by everyone because if yoga is not done in correct way then it may not benefit learners as it should and their body can’t be prepared for more extensive asans leaving them not able to perform yoga as desired by them.
Mr. Shekhar teaches asans, pranayam and kriyas during yoga teaching imparting knowledge to students about their importance, benefits and more knowledge about spirituality. He teaches more complex and extensive yoga in traditional hatha style after completely making a foundation to make mind and body ready for stepping ahead and doing advanced asans.
Also, the extensive yoga is sequenced, keeping in mind warming up and strengthening body by easy asans and then one by one going to more complex ones. By this approach students can learn complex asans without much problem and not getting hurt or injured while doing asans. Although injuries and hurting is not common while practicing yoga but precautions should be taken to avoid any chance of it.
He believes that anything can be achieved, all a person has to do is fully dedicate himself and practice in the area he devotes himself to.
“Continuous practice with full dedication and devotion surely takes us wherever we want to be” – this is his personal experience and believe.
Mr. Shekhar has studied yoga from several teachers and at and different ashrams around India. He practices ashtanga vinyasa yoga and hatha yoga for many years.

And this joyness has taken him to various places in India, in Thailand for 2 years and also in China for 2 months to cross the boundaries and spread yoga and its knowledge, benefits, etc.

Hari had been very privileged of being born in the family who are dedicated to yoga and follow The Raman Maha Rishi and his teaching, living in a small village in the mountains of Himalayas, and it is widely believed that this place is the home of Yoga as Lord Shankar lives in Himalaya and imparted about yoga to saints and sadhus here. Mr. Hari’s family environment allowed and encouraged him to follow the path of yoga and he started his journey at a very early age. As time followed and he got older, he started learning yoga and its techniques from experienced yogis and saints in the vicinity because there are large number of sadhus, saints and yogis present in Himalayas who live there in peace and spirituality to get closer to God. They have taught him that yoga can be learned by itself and the true meaning of life and its purpose can be also known by itself.
This is said by those great yogis to Hari- ‘yoga can only be learned from within and a person himself is his best teacher.’
Later Hari started practicing Iyengar Yoga by the guidance of Sharat Arora, a complete Iyengar guru who inspired him to adopt this style of yoga with pure dedication and devotion. He still continues to practice Iyengar Yoga It is Mr. Hari belief that complete mental and body peace can only be achieved by the right and correct alignment of body which can be done by doing yoga asans in a proper way. He found that this is the key for peace as well as discipline in life. Mr. Hari has dedicated his whole life to yoga and got true knowledge of life in return, which he likes to share with his students.
As quoted by him- “Yoga as a way to uncover the complete potential of liberation, which is dormant in every human being.”
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Mr. Hari is very knowledgeable yoga teacher with kind and helping heart.
