Born in Etah (U.P.), a town close to Shankasya (now Shakisha), a popular Buddhist place, Yogi Mahendra Ji heard his calling for Yoga during his schooling in Gautam Buddha Inter College. Breaking away from the initial plans of completing graduation and further running the family business, Mahendra Ji left home and traveled to Haridwar to respond to his calling. He remained under the shadow of Gayatri Pariwar at Shanti Kunj for four years during which he completed Post Graduate Diploma in Yoga Science from Deva Sanskrati University. Soon after, he did his Masters in Yoga Science from Uttarakhand Sanskrit University in 2016. His inclination to specialize in Ayurveda brought him to complete 6 months’ certificate course in Ayurveda. After completing education, he acquired the badge of recognition and genuineness by qualifying the QCI (Quality Council of India) from the Department of AYUSH in June 2017. Ever since July 2016, Mahendra Ji has been actively associated with Rishikul Yogshala in Rishikesh. His specialized subjects include Pranayama, traditional Hatha yoga, Mudra, and Ayurveda. In his own words, “One drop of experience/ feeling is better than a hundred words of theory.”
