He is one of the first arrivals and the last living gurus from this initial wave, and a pioneer in bringing the authentic practices of Yoga to the West. In recognition of his work, he was honored in 2013 with the International Yoga Grand Master award. Gurudev’s media appearances include The New York Times, and USA Today to name a few and he is the recipient of seven literary awards.
