Putting his scientific knowledge to practice, he worked in a naturopathic and ayurveda hospital in Delhi but always felt the great need to attain the ancient knowledge of yoga and Vedanta in the traditional way. So he returned to his birthplace, the Himalayas, and was blessed by the teaching of Swami Sivananda Saraswati.
Mahendra started teaching in India and moved to Singapore 11 years ago. He worked with Pure and True Yoga; now he is a freelance yoga teacher working with selected studios and also teaches yoga to his private clients. With 16 years of extensive experience, he brings with him the science of yoga, philosophy of yoga sutras and the synthesis of different classical forms of hatha, vinyasa and yin yoga, and more.
