Bring your awareness, is all you will need (and of course your yoga mat) . Explore your body flow and align with the universe with every breath. As we move, hold our pose together, we take a step forward to develop our awareness and rediscover the subtle aspects that define our very existence; in every breath. Join us, soak in the goodness of yoga. Breathe!
On completing my post graduate from King’s College London, my future set to be in the lane of resolving policies, understanding economic forecast, studying world political views and the economies they effect (I always go breathless here). While I enjoyed my education, albeit, set to take on world by storm with the odds already against me (being a woman in a domain dominated by men) I couldn’t help but notice, I felt a greater calling from the universe, call.
I’m a football playing, sport loving, beach hungry native of Goa, now back home and looking for work. I began a new journey, curious about meditation and yoga, started reading and noticed a growing connection with the subject. Next I was in Bangalore, enrolled in the a1000 yoga academy, who helped me move in the right direction - transforming me into a certified yoga teacher in the Hatha Yoga practice, dating back to the 2nd century BC.
Hatha Yoga, which literally means “union through discipline of force”, is a school of thought in Yoga with emphasis on the mastery of the body, to attain a state of spiritual perfection, where the mind is withdrawn from external objects. I believe Hatha yoga has helped me align and calm my body, mind and spirit; preparing me to meditate better. While Hatha yoga helps develop flexibility we can’t help but notice the sudden gain in strength, concentration as-well-as the vitality of muscles, joints and organs. Practicing Yoga correctly cleanses the body from toxins, to go a disease-free lifestyle almost blindly now. The ultimate aim of Hatha Yoga is to connect with one’s self. Or as we call it, Self Awareness.
