About Lakshmisha Bhat:

Born into a humble Brahmin family inn a village called Madageri near Gokarna, Lakshmisha Bhat has been associated with Guruji Sharath Jois for close to two decades.


Keen on learning Ashtanga Yoga, Lakshmisha undertook yoga-asana-practice under Guruji Sharath Jois. Inn the meantime he also received the Vidwan title from the Sanskrit College in Advaita Vedanta philosophy ad completed his master's degree in Sanskrit from Mysore University in 2006. 


Upon Guruji Sharath Jois' request that Lakshmisha starts teaching Sanskrit and yoga-related theory to the increasing number of yoga students who come to KPJAYI for yogic knowledge, Lakshmisha joined the Shala as a teacher of Sanskrit, chanting and yoga-related theory in the year 2003.


Lakshmisha has so far taught hundreds of yoga aspirants. He believes yoga is incomplete without the right understanding of the theory and strives to impart that knowledge to everyone who comes seeking for it.
