Praanvi Gupta, a seven-year-old girl from Dubai, is an accredited yoga teacher within a US-based Yoga alliance programme. In fact, she takes weekly training sessions for the children’s batch at the Vedic Yoga Centre. As it happens, Praanvi started her yoga journey when she was as young as four years old. Inspired by her mother, Priyanka Sengar, who practises yoga every day, Praanvi’s passion grew by the day and she, too, started practising yoga independently.

Watching her share enthusiasm for yoga with family and friends, Praanvi was encouraged to join a yoga institute. She trained under Dr Vincent, a yoga master with 24 years of experience and a doctorate degree. She then prepared to become a yoga teacher, but her journey has not been an easy one. She juggled regular school with extracurricular activities and yoga practises. Finally, she gained verification and after a couple of months, her parents applied for Guinness World Records. As a result, she was awarded the record of the world’s youngest yoga instructor!

Moreover, she also has a YouTube channel by the name of ‘Learning With Praanvi,’ and she aims to inspire young yoga enthusiasts to take their journey to the next level. Doesn’t the story of this grade II student from Gems Wellington International School in Dubai, sound inspiring? This young girl certainly teaches everybody the lesson of following their passion, regardless of their age.
