“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.”

 — The Bhagavad Gita

God has given everyone a gift with unique talents; few of us can identify at the right time & right age. A very few people have this skillset with this mystical talent since their childhood. Although Ishwar Sharma has struggled from birth with ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), he was never able to sit still and self-control his body initially. But since practicing Yoga, he has found inner peace and calmness inside his mind and soul. And this 10-year-old yoga prodigy is now a master in Yoga and also inspiring millions to do it.

At just the tender age of four, Ishwar has performed in more than 100 national and international events. He is inspiring thousands of children and adults to commence their journey with Yoga. For Ishwar, his journey is just like a competition, not to compete with others but with himself. He always challenges himself to practice different yoga postures to boost his skills in the art of Yoga.

Apart from Yoga, he also can chant many ‘shlokas’ from the ‘Vedas’ and ‘Bhagavad Gita.’
