Her trainer, Hari Chetan, 67, set up the ashram 35 years ago and as soon as little Shruti became one of his students, as a tiny four-year old, he spotted her talents.

Now she starts her classes at 5.30am every morning, at Brahmanand Saraswati Dham, in the Jhunsi town, dressed in white leggings and a red t-shirt surrounded by 30 eager pupils ranging from businessmen, teachers, housewives to pensioners.

"It feels good when people follow my instructions, I feel like a real teacher," the Daily Mail quoted Pandey as saying.

"I got interested in yoga after seeing my brother do it. I tried picking it up myself but it was too hard. So I asked my parents to send me to yoga classes," Pandey added.

Shruti has mastered some of yoga's most challenging positions. She can easily hold her entire body on the strength of her little arms and hang her legs backwards over her head Chetan, who Pandey also calls her grandfather, think she's a miracle.

"She's a fast learner and a perfectionist. She grasps techniques quickly unlike kids her own age, who get bored with something as patience consuming as yoga.

"Within just six months of her training, she surprised everyone by doing the toughest positions with ease and perfection. She's a natural," Chetan added.
