I first met Shiva a few years ago in Goa, and enjoyed practicing with him very much; he ignited in me a genuine love for yoga. I was very inexperienced, but he was incredibly kind and sensitive. He is also very funny, warm and gentle. Since then I have practiced yoga and spent time with Shiva in Rishikesh and London. His teaching is utterly authentic and his knowledge and understanding phenomenal. He instantly grasps what each student needs. You really feel the difference learning from a yoga master such as Shivaji.
