Yogiswara Piyush was born and brought up in a traditional Himalayan village near Uttarkashi. Son to a family of Brahmin priests, Yogiswara Piyush was exposed from infancy to the Hindu Orthodox tradition and interacted with a number of Saints in his early age. He started practicing very early in his life under their guidance and was inspired by them to join the Sivananda Yoga Teachers Training Course to learn Yoga intensively. In 2008 Yogiswara Piyush then further developed his expertise by taking the Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Course in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, South India. His training was put to use teaching in different ashrams and Yoga centers throughout India.
