Premadasa has been a student of Yoga since 1998 and has studied its various lineages enabling him to relate to and address the many issues which different bodies encounter while on the path of yoga. His passion for Kriya Yoga was ignited by Paramhansa Yogananda’s highly-regarded ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ which inspired his initiation into Babaji’s Kriya Yoga culminating in a Registered Kriya Hatha Yoga Teacher certificate in 2004. Premadasa’s exposure to a myriad of holistic and western treatments brought him to yoga’s sister science of ayurveda. Its positive effects prompted his calling to empower others to take control over their health. The result of his journey culminated in the birth of Pure Life Ayur Yoga (PLAY) whose mission is to educate, promote, and encourage total health through the practices of yoga and ayurveda. His study background includes Yin Yoga training with Bernie Clark, Restorative Trainings with Judith Hanson Lasater, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Reiki, Ayurvedic training with Drs. Ismat Naithani and Nitin Shah, Iyengar, and Sivananda. Premadasa’s gentle heart and dedication to study are brought to every class he instructs.
