Born and bred in Calcutta, India, Master Saumik kicked off his interest in Yoga at the age of 5 and have been teaching for over 20 years. He has studied all the aspects of Yoga from the psychological behaviour to the anatomy and physiological functions. “It is very important to understand the human mind and the human body – its limitations and capabilities, only then can we understand our own body movements.” Master Saumik specialises in delivering philosophy in a fun and inspiring way. He has an anatomy background in Functional Anatomy – studies of the human bones and its capabilities, and has completed extensive traditional yoga studies over his course of practice.
