Message from Centre Director
“I enjoyed attending yoga classes so much that after a few years I enrolled with YTTC and later with YTI to become a Yoga teacher and a Yoga Therapist. I started Meditation (TM )when I was still in secondary school.
Teaching Yoga has opened up a whole new world for me. It is good to see a person try out different postures, and see the benefits and flexibility that a yoga class can bring to an individual. As I always say, no two bodies are the same and no two yoga practices are alike.
I now have a wonderful yoga studio at my home, with great space and light. I keep my classes small, with a maximum of 8 people per class (both male and female). I teach meditation, breathing exercises, asana practice and yoga nidra (relaxation).”
