Flying around the world as cabin crew for an international airline has certainly got its pros and cons. To see the world, to meet different people, to have new experiences & to be able to serve others are just a few of the advantages of the job. Irregular sleeping & eating patterns, combatting jet lag, stress & fatigue are on the other hand some of the downfalls.
In order to create balance in my body & mind with my busy and active lifestyle I started looking for something that would be physically challenging but at the same time gentle, accessible & beneficial. This is when I found yoga as the ultimate answer. Soon after I started practising I saw the tremendous health & mental benefits but also how it affected my emotional state. Not only did I become stronger and flexible but also much more gentle, tolerant and calmer. My love for the practice grew steadily & immensely.
Having studied both Hindi & Sanskrit in India and being brought up with many Hindu myths & rituals I couldn’t wait to share my love & knowledge of yoga with others who would benefit from it.
My classes aim to provide a combination of a Vinyasa flow & a Yin sequence. They are both invigorating and approachable. I encourage my students to bring awareness to the breath and cultivate strength, openness & mindfulness while guiding to focus. This provides ease and connection not just on the mat but out into the world.
The Head or the Circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, as well as all cyclic movement.
The Torso or the Heart is an ideograph used to express the idea of the “heart” in its metaphorical or symbolic sense as the center of emotion, including affection and love.
The legs or the Infinity symbol is a never ending loop which means forever or always or limitless – never ending possibilities.
Stacked on top of each other the 3 symbols form a simple yoga pose called Sukhasana. Sukhasana is one of the most basic yoga asanas and is suitable for yogis of all levels. The name is derived from the Sanskrit, sukha, meaning “pleasure” or “comfort,” and asana, meaning “pose.”
