    The self financed yoga center which was granted affiliation by the Gujarat University and started with much fanfare to teach short-term yoga courses has closed down.Apparently, there were many complaints against the yoga guru of the institution who reportedly entered into relationships with the girls coming to attend the courses which jeopardized the future of the institution.

    Officials said that the guru apparently fell for a girl who came to attend the course in the institution. This raised the hackles of her parents and the mother went on to file a complaint with the governor office which later directed the GU to look into the complaint and take action.

    Acting VC of the GU, Dr Mukul Shah said that former VC Parimal Trivedi had terminated the contract of the agency running the institution. “There were lot of irregularities happening at the Yoga Center and we had taken note of these. Before the GU could crack down on the center, Swamiji himself shut down the institution and deserted the center anticipating action”, said Dr Shah. The contract will now be given to a new agency.

    Followers of the Swamiji however said that the center was closed as the yoga guru had gone abroad.
