Shri Nikam Guruji had achieved a high degree of perfection or paranormal capabilities and had become a’ Siddha Purush‘ in HathaYoga. Yoga Breathing techniques that we have learned through Nikam Guruji are the best and easy to learn. For Yoga Niketan, the collection of Hath Yoga Poses by Shri Nikam Guruji serve a great help while teaching Hatha Yoga benefits. ‘Swasthya Yoga’ written by Shri Nikam Guruji has become a textbook for a student of Hatha Yoga.
Founder of ‘Shri Ambika Yoga Kutir’, Thane, Shri Nikam Guruji was born on 15th of August, 1917, in a small village “Mhasave”, in Maharashtra.
He joined Police department in the state of Maharashtra. He acquired the thorough knowledge of Indian wrestling and Martial Arts and established 24 Gymnasiums at various places of work wherever he was transferred during his service. He believed that physical weakness is the greatest weakness. After realizing that mere physical exercises are not sufficient for the total development of human being, he switched to Yoga since 1948. He rendered service to humanity free of charge till his last breath i.e. 18th July 1999 through Yoga, Ayurveda, Nature cure, Shivambu (Urinetherepy), Adhyatma (spiritualism).
He has served hundred thousand of people who have been benefited by the Yoga practice that he taught. People came from different strata of society irrespective of caste creed and religion. The total cure was offered for the common cold, sinus trouble, headaches, Blood pressure, ulcers, stomach problems, Acidity, Piles, Heart problems, Depressions etc. through Yoga Nature cure system. Nikam Guruji imparted Total Health to all those who would come to him, i.e. Physical, Mental, Social and Spiritual health. A lot of Yog Aspirants Inspired by Nikam Guruji`s marathon work in the field of Yoga did convert into selfless Yoga Teachers who now currently run about 65 centers in Maharashtra and even outside India.
‘’Yoga Niketan’’, the institute where we had our total knowledge of Yoga ( what all that we have today ), and its President right now Shri Madhusudan Seksaria are privileged enough to have had the blessings of Nikam Guruji. He was Master (Siddh Purush) in HathaYoga and what all we deliver/teach in Hath Yoga today, are all his teachings only.
We here seek His blessings to give us enough strength so that we follow his teaching and are able to do even a fraction of work that was done by Him.
