Sailesh grew up immersed in spiritual traditions. He loved to read in his parents’ library, which was filled with books on philosophy, yoga, and meditation. As a small boy, he observed his family during their worship and meditation practices. It was there that he encountered Bhakti Yoga and the chanting of vedic mantras for the first time. Sailesh’s parents taught him Osho’s dynamic meditation technique from his parents, upon which meditation became part of his life.
After a 6-month Hatha Yoga training in Pokhara in 2014, Sailesh moved to South Chennai, India, to learn music meditation at A. R. Rahman’s music school. This technique connects each of the seven chakras to a corresponding musical note, facilitating one’s connection with the universal power.
He continued to extensively travel India and Nepal: He stayed in Kerala, Boudhgaya, Goa, Branashi, Rajgir, Vaishali, Sikkim, Ithari, and Lumbini. During his travels, he met many Sadhus, Sanyassis, Himalayan Babas, and learned yoga, pranayama, meditation, and chanting techniques from them. Sailesh also completed Vipassana and Seva meditation immersions.
As one of the highlights of Sailesh’s time in India, he spent a year in Manali, where he learned art meditation through painting. This technique allows us to connect with the universal power by painting nature landscapes, in combination with internal mantra chanting,
Sailesh joined Kamala Yoga Nepal in 2019, and teaches at our studio and on some of our yoga treks. Delighted to be continuing his spiritual journey with Kamala Yoga Nepal, Sailesh finds great satisfaction in sharing his knowledge and experience with people from all over the world.
