According to Guinness World Records, nine-year-old Reyansh Surani, an Indian living in Dubai, UAE, is the world’s youngest certified yoga instructor. He developed a love for yoga when he was four years old, while watching his parents perform it as part of their daily routine.
Reyansh’s first professional training was at Rishikesh when he attended a yoga training course with his parents. During the course, he had to live without internet and facilities like air conditioning. The course brought him closer to nature. He learned many aspects of yoga like alignment, anatomic philosophy and nutritional facts of Ayurveda. He presently conducts small private yoga classes for 10 to 15 students.
