I believe that when we practice yoga consistently and devotionally, one day we will be able to overcome life’s challenges and our fear of death, not just by intellectual reasoning and getting experience in facing our problems, but because a real realization happens. Yoga is the way. Yoga is the means to understand the truth, not just for health and well being, not just for living. Yoga is everything in life to me.
To my students I want to give this real understanding of life through yoga practice. I want them to understand that focusing on the body alone is not going to solve or end problems and ailments. The body will eventually become old, no matter how hard we try to keep ourselves fit and strong. So we need to try to understand life, instead of only worry about the physical state of your bodies. Only if you truly understand life, and death, you will understand everything.
I am a certified yoga teacher from the International Sivananda Yoga Centre. I hold a master degree in Buddhism, where yoga is also the part of the course, and I studied Sanskrit, the language of yoga, at the Sanskrit University and the White Gompa. Sanskrit, in fact, helps to understand yoga more than any other language.
I am a freelance yoga instructor, so it is always a joy to teaching different people at different places.
