He learned Yoga techniques at the age of 10 from his Grandfather who was a Yoga Guru/spiritual healer and regular Yoga practitioner under the guidance of Great Yogi Brahmrishi Geetanand Saraswati at “Baghol Muktidham Tapovan” and “Himalayas”.
After post-graduation in Finance, he spent nearly 15 years as a finance professional and Sr. Management team member, working in various Government/NGO/MNC and other corporate organizations going through the stress and strain common for all working professionals.

During Meditation, he realized magical magnetic attraction and divine peace. This magnetic attraction and divine peace during meditation kept bringing him back on his Yoga mat. It was a place where he always found peace and serenity regardless of what was happening in his life. Since his childhood, he continued practicing with master yogis and saints at Brahmrishi Geetanand Sanyas Ashram while working in the corporate world.

Krishna brings a holistic approach in his teachings by using healing, therapeutic, and breathing techniques to suit the needs of his students. Through his experiences, he saw how Yoga can benefit everyone by improving the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of each individual.
