Tarun Kranti Guru Chanababa
Tarun was born in 1980 in Dongargarh, State of Chhattisgarh in Middle India. Following a family tradition he started to frequent a guru named Sant Chanababa at the early age of 9 for meditation and yogic spiritual talks named Satsang. Chanababa was an old Tantra Master living in a temple located on Shakti Mountain giving Tarun his spiritual name "Kranti" which means "Revolution".
In this early period of his life, Kranti already came in touch with the ethics of Yoga and at the same time this was the beginning of his spiritual journey.
At the age of 14, his guru found Kranti mature enough to begin with daily Yoga practice. For this reason Kranti started having Asana class with Swami Vidhyanand Saraswati at Shivananda Kutir Yoga Ashram and was trained there in different yoga styles: Ashtanga, Vinyasa FLow, Sivananda, Kundalini and Raja. It was in those days that Kranti gained his first teaching experience while replacing the Swami occasionally when he was absent. During this period he was taught in Ayurveda as well by Dr. Manoj Sharma.
In 1999 he became member of The Divine Live Society Sivananda Ashram in Rishikesh and stayed there for around 2 years.
Over those years he came in touch with many spiritual Indian masters who influenced and molded his thinking and way of living.
After several stays in different ashrams, he finally started teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga at OSHO International Ashram in Pune in 2001. Since then he has dedicated himself completely to this dynamic and powerful form of Yoga. During a longer stay in Jagan Mohan Palace in Mysore, Kranti was able to deepen his knowledge about Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga style which he considers the most suitable asana practice for himself.
In 2007, Kranti started his own yoga shala (school) in Goa and has since been teaching Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow. Kranti was certified by Yoga Alliance in 2010, the same year he started travelling throughout Europe giving numerous classes and workshops. Back in Goa, he shares his knowledge with yoga students from all over the world in Yoga Teacher Training Courses, Intensive Yoga Courses and Yoga Retreats which he offers successfully in his shala on Patnem Beach.

Gaurav was born in Haridwar in 1982. He started asana practice when he was six with his father who was a PE teacher and wrestler and then with his mother. Later on, daily asana practice became part of his life.
He completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and returned back home, not sure what to do next. It was then that he asked his mum what yoga was. Even though he’d been doing asanas every day, the concept of yoga teachings was still unclear to him. As his mum was not able to give him a satisfactory explanation, he went to ask a university professor. He, however, said it’s impossible to explain in just a few minutes and that Gaurav should sign up for a six-months university course. Coincidently, the course started a few days earlier and Gaurav could still join the group if he wanted. When Gaurav went to talk to the professor, he had no intention of signing up for any courses, he just wanted to ask a few questions, and all of a sudden he’s been offered a place on a course and was not sure what to do. The next day he decided to take the course, which turned out to be a life-changing decision. He realised that he wanted to dedicate his life to yoga, learn more and deepen his knowledge, which led to him taking more courses - first a Master’s degree in Human Consciousness and Yogic Science, and then a PhD in Pranayama, both at the Gurukul Kangri University in Haridwar.
He also completed courses in marmatherapy, acupressure and magnet therapy and holds basic, advanced and psycho advanced certificates in pranic healing. Gaurav started teaching yoga in 2009 and worked for various yoga schools around India, including schools in gonda, Rishikesh and Muzaffarnagar.
He’s a dedicated, open-minded and enthusiastic teacher, happy to be sharing his knowledge with others and helping them find their own path in life. He started working at Kranti yoga school in 2011, where he teaches pranayama and meditation, yoga philosophy, anatomy and physiology as well as various yoga styles, including hatha, yin, ashtanga, and power yoga. Magda Procner
She is originally from Poland and holds a Master’s degree in English-Polish translation and interpreting, and translates novels into Polish.
She started doing hatha yoga about eight years ago in her hometown, then experimented with various yoga schools and styles, until a few years later, when she moved to Kraków and tried ashtanga yoga for the first time with Michal Katski. Right after the first class, she knew that was exactly what she was looking for – a dynamic and demanding yoga practice.
In 2011 she quit her full-time job and came to India for the first time to travel and improve her yoga skills. What was supposed to be a long holiday, turned out to be a life-changing experience, which turned her organised life upside down. Until then, she’d mainly been interested in asana practice and treated it as way to stay healthy.
She came to Goa and started taking classes with Kranti, discovering not only the physical side of yoga, but also the power of meditation, pranayama and ayurveda. She has completed her TTC with Kranti and, having fallen in love with India, and particularly with Patnem, a small and quiet beach where you can really relax and feel at home.
