It was because of this hunger to search the depth of mystic life forces that Uttam started his spiritual journey which led him to learn and practice Kundalini, Yantra, Mantra & Tantra. Through hard work, dedication and experience, he was initiated onto the Kundalini Yoga Path by Swami Vidyananda.
Uttam teaches a wide range of Transformational Kundalini Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga in Rishikesh. He conducts workshops around the globe concerning meditation and yoga therapy.
