He completed his 200-hour Teacher Training with Kia Miller, founder of Radiant Body Yoga (RBY).

Thus able to holistically balance the inward and outward energies of the body and the mind. An engineer and mathematician by trade, with ongoing international corporate experience, Praveen also enjoys cooking, gardening, motorcycling and flying.

Radiant Body/Kundalini Yoga
Radiant Body Yoga (RBY) is a holistic approach to yoga, which has its roots in the ancient Kundalini and Tantric traditions. These practices are designed to awaken each practitioner to their higher nature. They offer a potent combination of physical posture, breath work, kriya, meditation, and chanting. They increase strength, build vitality and create mental clarity. Created by Kia Miller, it integrates 3 key elements: the transformational possibilities of Kundalini Yoga; the challenging and technical precision of Ashtanga and Iyengar Yoga; the power of Prayer, Mantra and Meditation
