About Our Acharya

Bala, Hatha VidyanGurukulam's founder and director, is from Kerala's Thrissur area.His path to yoga began at Yoga - VedantaForest Academy, Sivananda Ashram, Rishikesh, where he received basic yoga training. Following that, he embarked on a lengthy journey across Northern India in search of the truth. Fortunately, he met several famous teachers who imparted insight to help him experience the genuine core of the Yogic trip. In 2006, he met his Guru, H.H. Srividyamba Saraswathi of Chaya peeth, and was initiated into the Natha lineage.Under the guidance of his Guru, he founded HathaVidya Gurukulam in Thrissur, Kerala, in 2008 to provide training to Yoga aspirants from all areas of life. Thapobhoomi founded a residential yoga institute on the banks of the Gayathri River in Pazhayannur, Thrissur district, Kerala, India, in 2009. Its publishing branch began in 2010. In 2012, Sri. Bala created Hatha Vidya Gurukulam's first overseas wing in Dubai, UAE.

A real setting where one may have an actual experience of Yoga-Vedanta via mental and physical cleansing. Thapobhoomi takes its name from the terms thapas (penance) and bhoomi (land). Practicing such yogic practices leads to the highest level of mental and bodily joy. This purifying ceremony was finished on the hallowed grounds of Pazhayannur, located on the banks of the "Gayathri River" in Thrissur, Kerala. "Thapobhoomi" is thus an apt name for this refuge of peace and tranquillity. Scholars claim that Muneeshvaran, a Shaivite monk, acquired enlightenment by meditating on this location many years ago. Folklore in the town of Pazhayannur tells of his mystical feats. Following the departure of this great Sage, it became obsolete and was eventually seized by Mother Nature.
