Abhishek was born and brought up in the capital of India, New Delhi, in a family with roots from Kerala, the home of Ayurveda. He finished his schooling from Varanasi where he also met Swami Anil.
The teaching on Ashtanga Yoga Philosophy inspired him to utilize the benefits of yoga for much deeper personal transformation than a mere tool of physical improvement and mediation. From here, he began to teach yoga in Varanasi and other parts of the country.
In 2010, Abhishek moved to U.S where he taught yoga for 5 years before coming back to India in order to follow his dream of dwelling in the Himalayas.
Now, he teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yoga History, and Yoga Philosophy in Rishikesh.
He also does traditional walking tours of the city. Abhishek, along with his wife Sapna, also a Yoga Instructor, work with several organizations in India to create specialized yoga therapy programs for various Trauma and Human trafficking survivors.
