A 13-year-old Indian-origin Yoga prodigy from south-east England has won Gold Medal at the European Yoga Sports Championship in Sweden, adding one more to the list of awards under his belt.

Just recently, he bagged the Europe Cup 2023 in the Boys 12-14 category when he competed in the European competition organised by the International Yoga Sports Federation in collaboration with Swedish Yoga Sports Federation in Malmo, as per the release.

Since the age of three, Ishwar Sharma from Sevenoaks in Kent, started taking up Yoga after seeing his father practise daily and went on to win several World Yoga Championships.

“Ishwar is passionate about spreading the message of Yoga, especially for special needs children,” his family said in a statement, with reference to his autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

As per the release, Sharma was instrumental in taking up daily Yoga classes for 40 children across 14 countries during the coronavirus lockdown, as he was honoured by then-British Prime Minister Boris Johnson with the Points of Light award.

He has won five world championships and British Citizen Youth Award at the House of Lords for his contribution towards Yoga. Along with his father, Dr Vishwanath, Ishwar runs IYoga Solutions to spread the word about Yoga and its many benefits in the UK.
