Bharat Thakur, is a revolutionary yogi who is as well-known for his world famous brand of yoga as he is for his uncompromising attitude towards spirituality. The fact that he was immersed in yoga and may other spiritual traditions at the age of four under his master Sukhdev Brahmachari, only makes him a master of applying these various traditions towards the one goal of discovering your true self, and living life to the fullest while being connected within. With a Master’s degree and a Phd in Sports Medicine and Yoga, he is equally well versed in the scientific tradition, which he strongly believes in.
In 1999, he started a new style of yoga that gave tangible and powerful results like weight loss, freedom from diseases like diabetes, arthritis, asthma and stress, while never forgetting the vast number of variations and also focusing on the meditative nature of this science. ‘Artistic Yoga’ became a global phenomenon, with millions of students all over the world.
He conducts Retreatss in various parts of the world focusing on spiritual transformation and inner growth. ‘Meet me and try to not meditate.’ He says, summing up the Bharat Thakur experience in few words. Powerful yogis are those in whose presence something within you is forever changed. He doesn’t hesitate to credit it all to his master, who ‘passed on’ all his powers and energies to him before he left his body. ‘I don’t expect you to understand all this, but truth is truth and has to be said.’
He has appeared on popular television shows all over the world, and is also the author of nine books including a book of poetry.
