Shree Vinayak Kaurwar was born in Nagpur, India, in 1965. Initially he trained in Yoga with his father Dr. S.V. Kaurwar since the young age of 5. In 1991 after finishing high school and some college he came to USA and worked in various fields until in 1996 he realized his passion in Yoga and started teaching yoga to friends and people.

While reading philosophy of Yoga, Shree realized the translations were not accurate and sometimes wrong which led to studying Sanskrit, the official language of Yoga and Ayurveda. He got fascinated with the depth of knowledge contained in those books ahd he started teaching Sanskrit to Yoga aspirants and spiritual seekers.

In 2009 Shree traveled to India to seek company of the real Yogis and spiritual people. Fortunately he found such a place where people still stay in jungle eat tree leaves and drink from rivers and sleep in open in jungle that is home to more than 165 Bengal tigers unprotected. Shree did the same thing. He decided that he wants to live for the very purpose of his life which is YOGA and plans to stay in jungle of central India to meditate eight months a year to gain the firsthand knowledge, and four months in USA to share his experiences and earn some money to support himself and his family in USA and India.

This year will mark the 12th anniversary of Shree's continues study of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, a book that contains only 196 sutras and so far he have only correctly understood about ninety sutras in 12 years.

Shree educates his students about the main parts of yoga (the yamas and niyamas which is the foundation of yoga), without that no one can get the real benefit from yoga apart from its few health benefits. He focuses more and often on releasing the tension that is stored in our muscles by holding a position long enough in a comfortable manner. Also he offers YOGA NIDRA-Yogic sleep or progressive relaxation during his yoga class in order to teach his students how to relax when at work or traveling. The Yoga Sutras are full of meditation techniques. Shree create spontaneousness short meditation and pranayama exercises based on the yogic texts (the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and Hatha Yoga Pradipika). He teaches important yoga terminology and Sanskrit pronunciation.
