As a Teacher of Yoga in Mississauga and one of the few that offer authentic Hatha and Sivananda Yoga in Canada, my unique goal is to inspire continuous personal improvement, self-empowerment, peace and mindfulness.
This ancient science of life is not only a part of my Indian roots, but has been an indispensable influence on my wellbeing since childhood. Certified from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram in India, I believe that continued lifelong learning is a fundamental attribute of being a yogi. And because an authentic yogic life is so much more than the practice of physical postures, I regularly travel to ashrams to restore, relearn and advance in my abilities.
I have been fortunate enough to live and teach in several countries around the world, including Indonesia, Thailand, the Maldives, India, Canada and the United Arab Emirates. As a result, worldliness, cultural awareness and an appreciation of diversity is reflected in my own yogic lifestyle and my methods of interaction with my students.
My approach to teaching focuses primarily on each individual’s spiritual energy, latent potential and higher power. In addition to simplifying asana sequences and pranayama breathing techniques into their essential elements, I aim to naturally incorporate classical yogic disciplines, Vedic scriptures and Sanskrit mantras into each class.
In addition to my role as a teacher, I am also the founder, creator and author of Body Mind Light and a Brand Ambassador for yoga clothing lines.
I currently offer one-on-one classes in Sivananda Yoga in the Greater Toronto Area, including specific instruction for seniors, mothers-to-be and special needs. I feel incredibly blessed to be sharing these gifts of authentic Hatha Yoga with the world and I look forward to enjoying them with you.
