Yoga has such an extraordinary healing potential for both body and mind. The main Yoga practice that we observe in the world today is asana, or yoga postures. Asana-based yoga is rooted in the Hatha Yoga tradition, in which asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation form the basis of spiritual practices aimed at developing our internal energies.
Yoga balances, harmonizes, purifies and strengthens the body, mind and soul.
All my yoga training has been undertaken through The International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Organization. My entire yoga life has been purely from this lineage. Their teaching has inspired me to build a solid yoga practice combining all aspects of yoga (as taught by Swami Sivananda).
Yoga is far more than physical exercise/Asana. Sivananda teaches yoga as a scientific route to Self Realization and I have experienced some of the true transformation yoga can bring.
My Yoga training comprises - completion of the Sivananda Yoga Teachers Training Course (TTC) at the Yoga Farm in Grass Valley, California in May 2002. I followed this with the Meditation Immersion Course at the same ashram in January 2005. I did the Advanced Yoga Teachers Training Course (ATTC) in Neyyar Dam ashram in Kerala, South India in Feb/March 2006. I also have a certificate for the Vedanta and Silence Course taught by Swami Sitaramananda in Nassau, Bahamas, I took this course in February 2008.
