Karthik was born & brought up in Channai, South India, where yoga is practiced in its most authentic forms. Though Karthik started his career as an artist, he soon drifted to the path of yoga motivated by his genuine love for the practice; he spent years under the guidance of 4 different teachers & different styles at different times. Karthik is a firm believer that ‘Knowledge should come from different sources. If it came from the same source, it would become stiff & stale’. He started his training by learning the integral style of yoga from his first teacher for many years, and got the opportunity to practice Ashtanga Yoga under the guidance of Sri Sharath Jois in Mysore & Sri. Ravi and Sri Srimathi in Chennai, India. Karthik not only practices the asana (posture) part of yoga but also pranayama (Breath) and dharana (concentration).

He is deeply interested in Ayurveda and in his class he integrates the two ancient traditions into one. Faithful to the traditional styles of Yoga, Karthik conducts Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Krama & Ashtanga Led (Primary Series) sessions at Eclipse, inspiring with his style all practitioners to do the extra mile.
