So glad you want to find out more about me. And I am certain I will have an opportunity to find out more about you in the future.
My grandmother was my first guru, she introduced yoga philosophy to myself and my siblings. My Grandmother lost her sight in an accident, but she never complained about it. I remember her very peaceful being who always chanted mantras.
I was very fortunate to learn Sanskrit in my school years. I realised value of learning Sanskrit, it helped my curious mind to study deeper dimensions of wisdom of yoga.
Even though I completed my Master in computers and was working in corporate world, my yoga studies continued with great masters of yoga like Padekar guruji, B.K.S. Iyengar to name few. Durning this time, as per my yoga teacher’s suggestion, I shared my understating of yoga with different age groups.
‘Wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda has always help me to come back to inner peace. Yoga and Ayurveda has given me so much and I truly believe my Dharma or life’s purpose is to share my understanding of this amazing wisdom.’
After my daughter’s birth my little family moved to USA where I continued studying yoga as well as Ayurveda. I also visited India regularly for my studies. I realised combination of wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda can make massive positive impact on people’s life. I shared this understanding with those who were interested in this wisdom.
No matter where in the world I was, I regularly meditated, practiced asana and kept my health in check. It was a big push to deepen and discipline my practice in yoga.
Just when you think you have come so far, you realize there is always more to learn.
Eventually, the sense of calm and peace I found within, became the calm and peace my friends and neighbors were searching for all their lives. They wanted to know my secret. And that is when I was called to teach holistic yoga in the USA.
‘I believe that no one and nothing outside of you can give you answers or inner peace, coming back to your inner light is the key. Yoga and Ayurveda can provide amazing guidelines to awaken the inner Guru.’
After spending seven and half years in USA we moved to Australia, where I continued my Yoga and Ayurveda studies as well as continued teaching to various groups of people. I offered mentoring sessions for yoga teachers as well as one-to-one sessions to individuals who were looking for living life of purpose or dharma. I also started giving lectures on yoga philosophy, mediation, Sanskrit – language of yoga, Samskaras- conditionings of mind, Yoga and human mind, practical Ayurveda and much more.
It is said in yoga philosophy that when time is right Guru will appear. Five years ago my Guru appeared in my life. Following my Guru Vishwatmak Janglidas Maharaj Om Gurudev’s advise, I honored the calling. And it was amazingly touching to see the way it has transformed people’s health, relationships and life as whole. I realized after some time, that life leads you through experiences to connect more deeply with your center. For me, this transformed my health & wellbeing, and enabled me to transform other peoples’ health & wellbeing too.
‘I believe that yoga heart of yoga is meditation, heart of meditation is mantra, heart of mantra is Sanskrit, heart of Sanskrit is bija mantra, heart of bija mantra are vibrations from which universe is created. ‘
To date, I have taught for over 20 years, more than 15000 recorded hours of yoga teaching, facilitating yoga experiences and teachings for thousands of students. I also teach yoga teachers the deeper aspects of yoga and Ayurveda philosophy—ones that transcend the physical practice of asana (physical poses), which is what modern society often mislabels as yoga itself.
But what I saw as missing, I took upon myself to fulfil.
So today, I dedicate myself to bridge the gap between the comprehensive yoga curriculum I was blessed to have, and the mainstream understanding of yoga. I am certain that the many dimensions of yoga philosophy and practices hold great potential for everyday living.
I teach meditation those who are seeking inner peace as well workplaces where employers or management is looking after wellbeing of their employees.
I offer one-to-one mentoring sessions, group sessions, talks, workshops to bring wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda into day to day life.
Today I am partner in Beecroft yoga where I offer regular yoga sessions, I am co-founder of Immersion Yoga Teacher Training Central Coast where I have written and am teaching 200hr, 150hr, 350hr and Children’s Yoga teacher training as well as Meditation Teacher Training. I also teach at Adore yoga’s yoga therapy teacher training and Sukha Mukha yoga’s yoga teacher training.
My wish is to bring the untainted version of this body of knowledge, so people can live a life of true happiness, freedom and fulfilment. If you feel called to explore them, I feel called to invite you too.
