Brought up in a middle class Indian family, Yoga was known as a traditional way of exercise to me in childhood. It was during my vacations of 8th standard that I got introduced to a personality development course conducted by Vivekananda Kendra, Solapur.
My health was not that good, due to poor breathing and digestive problems were constant in those years. Talking to new people or even simply introducing myself to them was a daunting task. I used to be depressed, suffered from bouts of anxiety and had an inferiority complex.
Regular practice of asanas, pranayama, and meditation helped me to recover from poor health conditions. After completing my 12th standard, I decided to make yoga an integral part of my life and take it up as my profession. This lead to my my joining SVYASA (Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana) for Diploma in Yoga and Naturopathy DYSc as well as a Bachelors and Masters degree in Yoga. My connection of 6 years in SVYASA gave me an indepth insight into all aspects of Yoga. I could now experience the positive changes of occurring in me. Coupled with an in depth study of various scriptures like Bhagavad Gita, Yogavashishtha, Patanajali Yoga sutras etc I finally started understanding life and witnessing self-transformation.
I started working as a yoga teacher in corporate and health sector post my degree. I started helping my clients by introducing yoga techniques to make their stressful lives disease free and started getting feedback as to how yoga was enriching their quality of life.
I recently completed my 500 hours Vinyasa teachers training programme from Aayana Yoga Academy and it has been the best decision so far. Master Regeesh skillfully took my entire understanding to a different conscious level. It opened up new door of yoga practices. Since then taking Vinyasa classes has become a progressive experience for me and I am glad I can pass on the benefits to my students too.
Yoga is to bring life to a wonderful balance. My goal as a teacher is to spread this balance and harmony throughout the people I come in contact with.
