His first experience with yoga was during a meditation program he participated in 1999. He is drawn into it instantly as it was so different from performance based competitive sports he used to attend. Yoga is part of his life since YogaŞala’s commencement. The physical virility and mental tranquality he gained through yoga while continuing an active business life were key motives for his deep connection to yoga.
Particularly Ashtanga Yoga which requires a steady and disciplined practice resonated well with his engineering background. He participated in many workshops during the last 19 years. In 2017 he completed YogaŞala 200 Hr Yoga Alliance Approved Yoga Majoring Program under the guidance of Ürün Kurtic, Zeynep Birinci, Canan Özalp and Dylan Bernstein.
