Uncovering the True Message of the Vedas with Sarvesh Thakkar

The new age of spirituality has spread like wildfire in the yoga world. The possibility of correcting the yoga trends seems to get slimmer by the day. It can get frustrating sometimes, especially if you’re someone like me – born & raised in India. But If you’re passionate about studying and teaching genuine yoga wisdom, you’re probably looking for ways to properly and accurately introduce this philosophy to those who are eager to learn. Fortunately, this can be achieved by studying the Vedas.
