His classes are designed and customized taking in consideration the needs of his students. His extensive and deep understanding of the human anatomy and biomechanics helps him approach asanas with uncut precision, detail, and effective application.

Zubin comes from a business and a science background but his love for yoga transmuted itself into Atré Yoga Studio over a decade ago. When not teaching or practicing yoga, Zubin loves to spend time with family, write, travel, ride his motorcycle, and watch wacky YouTube videos. He is quite a fashion icon too with dapper lexicon.
