Meet our Yoga Teachers
I am a Yoga and massage therapist conducting yoga classes for nearly 17 years. I studied yoga therapy at a well renowned yoga university in Bangalore India. I learnt different styles of yoga with different teachers as well as Natural Therapy using Yoga, Massage Techniques and Essential Oils. In my classes I teach Hatha Yoga and incorporate other styles according to my students needs and to make the class interesting. I teach the general class, advanced yoga class, back pain yoga, pre-natal yoga and chair yoga (for senior citizens).
In 2008 I started practicing yoga at home and then joined the yoga class at the Vedanta Centre. My body was responding very well to yoga. I never thought to teach but when my yoga guru asked me, I started taking classes at the Vedanta Centre in 2017. Yoga challenges each one to be physically and mentally positive. It has taught me to stay focused in every moment in life. I hope when a person attends my class they experience the positive atmospheric vibration within the class. My classes combine a mix of yoga postures to strengthen the body as well as breathing techniques (pranayama). The class concludes with shanti mantras (peace mantra) and a yoga thought for the day.
In 2008 I started practicing yoga. I have always been conscious of holistic wellness and have practiced different kinds of exercises like swimming, walking and the gym. After I lost my husband in 2007 I lost interest in exercising and had put on a lot of weight. I developed lower back pain due to a sitting job and I occasionally felt dizzy. I had my blood sugar checked and was found to be on the border line of diabetes. The thought of being a life-long diabetic troubled me. I shared my condition with a friend who suggested to try yoga. The next day I was in the yoga group and started learning asanas and pranayama. Within a very short period my back pain was gone and my sugar levels dropped down to normal!
I started enjoying yoga more than swimming, gyming or walking. Now if I don’t do yoga for a day my body aches and I don’t feel energetic. I love yoga as it helps me keep work-life balance. My daily yoga practice provides me with mental clarity and calmness. Yoga has increased my awareness and relieved the chronic stress patterns that I had fallen into. I always feel that when we do yoga we need to give 100% and do it mindfully to get all the benefits. I recommend everyone to do yoga and pranayama daily to maintain mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
