Abhishek Guru was born and raised in Chennai, a coastal city in South India famous for its spicy cuisine and expansive beaches. He has studied at prestigious institutions including IIT MadrasIIM Calcutta and The University of Sydney.

From an early age, being a bit of a wild spirit, he didn’t seem to find fulfilment in most of the options that life offered him. When he was introduced to a yoga program designed by Sadhguru at Isha Foundation, this offered him a glimpse into the unbounded nature of existence and gave him an opportunity to do something meaningful – to raise awareness about yoga in its purest form.

After volunteering at Isha’s Australian centers where he deepened his spiritual practises, he undertook a 21-week (1750 hour) Isha Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program at the Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore, India, which he successfully completed in December 2013.

In February 2014, he founded Yoga Sadhana, School of Classical Hatha Yoga, which offers classical Hatha Yoga programs in Sydney. He also teaches occasionally for programs organised by Isha Australia.

He has taught in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Darwin and also in Hong Kong. As part of the first International Day of Yoga (21st June 2015) celebrations, he was invited to conduct a session at the World Yoga Day event at Bondi Pavilion. He has also co-hosted a public yoga session at Western Sydney's Parramasala Festival. On the second International Day of Yoga (21st June 2016), he led the first yoga class on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge!

Believing that yoga is a solution to all the world’s problems, he has dedicated his life to connecting seekers to this sacred science. He has recently opened a studio in Parramatta which can be found here on Google Maps.

what people are saying about Abhishek Guru

Greg Zyner

I have found Abhishek to be a very knowledgeable teacher, with a lot of patience, attention to detail and very clear way of explaining and demonstrating the various aspects of Hata Yoga. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Lachlan Smith

Abhishek is a patient and focused teacher committed to transmitting classical Yoga. His instructions are clear and precise. Whenever a question was asked it was answered with consideration of the students knowledge and answered accordingly. No student was left confused or unsure of an instruction. I found his style of teaching meticulous and very benefeicial. There was order and consistency in all four classes I attended with him. This created a nice rhythm and pace to the classes.

Millie Swann

Abhishek Guru is wonderfully trained by ISHA & taught & facilitated a wonderful weekend of Hata Yoga in Melbourne. I am an extensively experienced & qualified yoga teacher & he really provided such a wonderful space for the large group of students ( myself included) to have a deep understanding of the practice that he provided.

Arnab Saha

The teacher is one of graduates of Isha yoga's School of Hata Yoga. He has gone through an intense training in the process and that is reflected in the amount of dedication with which he teaches his classes. He teaches Hata yoga in its full glory- not only the physical postures are presented but the spiritual possibilities associated to them are also opened up- just the way the science of yoga was created in the first place. All the yoga postures are demonstrated and explained with great care and in a detailed fashion with explanations of the science behind it. Attending his classes has been a very enjoyable and powerful experience. Highly recommended!

Lynette Frey

Abhishek Guru is a patient, approachable and dedicated teacher. I attended the Surya Kriya course in Melbourne and found it to be exceptional in terms of the atmosphere that was set up in the hall and the care and precision of the teaching. For this particular course, Abhishek worked with a demonstrator, so there was a nice balance between physical demonstration and explanation. This practice has changed the quality of my life (and physical health) and I cannot recommend it more highly.

Stephen Dack

Abhi is a really friendly guy, some might find him quiet but he is really a very nice guy. His instructions are perfectly clear and extremely easy to understand and follow, everything is done in a logical, step-wise order, and Abhi won't relentlessly hassle you if you get something a little wrong - in my experience, comments are given to the group as a whole, no one was singled out. He creates a very conducive atmosphere for learning the practices and he knows the asanas absolutely 100%. He is very approachable and I wish I lived in Sydney so I could go to more of his sessions!

Marcia P. Jones

In my experience he is a excellent teacher which explains in detail how to do the positions and moves. He is very friendly and willing to answers all your questions and doubts during and after class. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Aashish Kaul

The Surya Kriya programme conducted by Abhishek Guru of 'Yoga Sadhana' is intelligently designed, and creatively oriented and executed. It is split over two days to help beginners slowly find their way into the heart of the practice, and understand it experientially and not merely abstractedly. Abhishek, trained under the intensive 'Isha Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program' at the Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore, India, is a generous and patient teacher, and makes the complex steps of the Surya Kriya come alive for the learner. ..I cannot recommend it enough!

Yatish Aron

Undoubtedly the best trained teacher of Hatha Yoga that I have come across. The style of teaching is unique. There is no gimmickry like hot yoga, upside down yoga etc. it's yoga in its truest form...in its pure essence with focus on transforming people at the subtlest level, apart from the natural benefits it accrues for you physically. A very capable, brilliant young man who has dedicated his life to improving the lives of people around him profoundly through transmission of yoga. It's a rare privilege to be trained by Abhishek.

Rena Lackner

Abhishek is a great teacher who has such a strong sense of dedication to his practices. His patience and direction has allowed me to confidently practice at home and I strongly recommend Yoga Sadhana School for everyone

Jagriti Bhatia

Brilliant teacher. Knows the true meaning of yoga. Very rare to find such a gem in Australia. Thank you for your wonderful talent in sharing what yoga and meditation is about.

I recently had the privilege of learning Yogasanas from Abhishek guru. The whole process of going through the 2 days program was an experience in itself. Everything was well thought out to the detail, the energy in the room, the way everyone were involved. Can imagine how much dedication and preparation would have gone to achieve this.After doing the practice each day I'm left with a feeling like something is blossoming within me; never felt this light within myself. My perception towards life deepens each day, it shifted from having to keep chasing life all the time to start experiencing simple things around me with deep awareness, be comfortable within me, look around and see life as it unfolds and take life as it comes. My mind which used to go on a constant loop all time is finally at ease.


He is an awesome teacher and knows what he is teaching. And his willingness to offer himself to yoga is just amazing. If I had any questions even months after studying with him he explains things in a way that is easy to understand and follow. The commitment that he has for yoga and his students are just amazing.


Abhishek Guru taught me Surya Kriya an year ago. Just to start with, my 2 year back pain was gone at the end of second session. I just felt more active throughout the day, food intake and sleeping pattern has also changed on the run. Now I'm a non smoker and vegetarian and I'm very alive. One more side effect is , this regular practice will wake you up very early in the morning :) even though I don't have to work during weekend. Abhishek Guru is a gift to us!
