Namaste – Instructor Introduction

Namaste Everyone,

My name is Hemant Kumar and I will be joining you guys on your upcoming exciting and breathtaking journey to North India.

I was born in a Hindu family and grew up on the sacred bank of the River Ganges (Ganga-ji) in Varanasi. I still remember when I was a kid I use to go with my parents to the river for a holy dip in the morning. Later the river became my swimming pool for the rest of my life. I developed a keen interest in Yoga at a very early age when I was 8 years old. I was introduced to yoga as a lifestyle and through initial training by my parents and also studied yoga from many Gurus (teachers) & traditions. At the age of 14, I moved to an orphanage called Bal Ashram (home for kids) where I met my spiritual teacher Baba Harihar ram ji. There I was initiated and learned and served at that orphanage for 5 years. In the meantime while I finished my high school and senior secondary (10+2) and moved to Bangalore, the southern part of India to take full time graduate and post-graduate courses in yoga. Having done my Bachelor’s and Master’s I moved back to Varanasi. I came in contact with Dragons and have been working with Dragons since 2011. I love working with students and sharing my experience. In my spare time I love practicing yoga, listening to music, playing outdoor games and activities.

I feel so blessed to join Rebecca ji and Uttara ji on this journey and very excited to meet you all in person soon…
