Dr Abhay Keste
The success of Abhay’s centre's can be accredited to his degree in homeopathic medicine and surgery, which enables him to teach yoga with a very strong focus on proper alignment, as well as a phyisiological perspective.
Dr Abhay has two yoga centers both named “SHRIKANT YOGA CENTRE”. Both centers are equipped with all those props that are used in Iyengar’s method. Dr Abhay is a homeopathic doctor with in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology. His medical background along with BKS Iyenger-way yoga helps him to treat people suffering from many diseases by the art of yoga only. His focus these days is mainly towards medical treatment using his own developed instrument.
Abhay started his journey on the path of yoga along with his father, who took up a yogic lifestyle himself as a means to improve his health.
Dr. Abhay Keste has always believed that yoga can be a highly effective and powerful source of rejuvenation on the physical, mental and ultimately the spiritual level. He maintains that health is linked to the body-mind connection. Abhay claims that nowadays, we are confronted and threatened by our busy lives and fast paced daily routines, which often tempt our minds to wonder and focus on various external information, while the inner self is discarded. He believes that this leads to imbalance and detachment, manifesting as pathology. It is through this reason that he believes yoga to be the best system to achieve true freedom, serenity and bliss. He also stresses that yoga is universal – every person can use it to their advantage, it is like a free medicine that we always carry with us.
Dr. Keste keeps up with his personal practice under the guidance of Guruji, BKS Iyenger who has visited Shrikant Yoga Centre on occasion, as well. Abhay is a wonderfully joyous person with a radiant smile, kind word and helping hand. And still stands on his head for 105 minutes!
