Nine-year-old Reyash Surani has become the youngest certified yoga instructor with a clip of him practicing different poses garnering both admiration and praise.

Posted on the Guinness World Records YouTube channel dedicated to children, the video opens with Reyash introducing himself and talking about becoming the youngest certified yoga instructor. The young Indian said yoga had always been a passion for him and after he started teaching he found he loved it too.

Reyash also recalled visiting a yoga retreat and living there without internet or air conditioning while still being surrounded by nature. “It was different! When I first heard we were going (to Rishikesh), I was curious about living a rural life. I saw this side of the world for the first time – a place with such spiritual grasp,” Reyansh said in the video.

“I felt very close to nature. The stay was exciting and adventurous as we were going to follow from time to time. It was a fun way to unwind after the intense yoga workout routine.
