His need to deepen his spiritual knowledge brought him to India where together with his spiritual master traveled extensively.  He has trained many sincere practitioners internationally in hatha & mantra yoga meditation for the last 30 years, dedicating his selfless service to others.  In his metaphysical path, he has always been committed to provide everyone with an opportunity to discover the spiritual self through yoga.  With this in mind, he co-founded the Houston Chapter of the Devanand Yoga Center in 1993 as an independent non-profit organization.  He is the driving force of this organization, having created a unique yoga center in the USA.  He presently guides the kirtan or mantra chanting segment on our evening yoga classes, Yogesh also teaches classes in Vedic philosophy and meditation.
