Tapovan is an inspiring presence to learn from. With a love of physical activities since his teenage years, he discovered yoga in 2003. This set him on an unforgettable journey which has now become a lifestyle.
He earned his first hatha yoga instructor certificate in 2011, followed by vinyasa flow the next year. He spent 3 months studying Ashtanga from two of the most accomplished teachers in Mysore. This was followed by 5 months learning rigorous meditation techniques and teaching yoga and pranayama in a Buddhist monastery near Kathmandu.
In 2014 he undertook the Sivanada teacher training programme and subsequently joined the full-time teaching staff at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram in Kerala, where he shared various yoga, pranayama and meditation classes. In 2015 Tapovan taught yoga and meditation at Phoenix Yoga Studio in Melbourne, followed by a 3 month conscious yoga living programme at Hariharalaya Retreat Center in Cambodia.
Tapovan is a fantastic teacher and intensive practitioner; his classes reflect the many years he has spent immersed in meditation, absorbing yogic texts and practising pranayama and kriya yoga techniques.
