Coming from the land which gave the gift of Yoga to the world, I actually discovered the Yoga streak in me after my marriage and after working as a software engineer with an MNC for quite some time.
But then, it was no turning back!
Today, I’m a motivated and certified Yoga Teacher - registered as RYT-200 with Yoga Alliance - which acknowledges the completion of a 200-hr yoga teacher training. I completed this 200-hr training from SOYA Yoga, Canada.
Apart from the 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training, I’ve certifications in:
I've always thought of Yoga as a means to not only acquire and maintain bodily poise, but also mental peace and relaxation. To that end, I’ve attended multi-day residential meditation camps such as those run by Dhamma Vipassana Meditation organization. I also have facilitating experience for such camps. Since Yoga and meditation can go hand in hand and can help boost the benefits of each other, this experience helps me a lot in getting out the most of both, done together or separately.
Come, let's continue on this beautiful never-ending-but-always-rewarding journey of Yoga.

The practice of yoga has been thought to date back to pre-vedic-Indian traditions; possibly in the Indus valley civilization around 3000 BCE. Yoga is mentioned in the Rigveda, and also referenced in the Upanishads. Although, yoga most likely developed as a systematic study around the 5th and 6th centuries BCE, in ancient India's ascetic and śramaṇa movements.
Yoga gurus from India later introduced yoga to the West. Outside India, it has developed into a posture-based physical fitness, stress-relief and relaxation technique.
Yoga in Indian traditions, however, is more than physical exercise; it has a meditative and spiritual core. One of the six major orthodox schools of Hinduism is also called Yoga, which has its own epistemology, ontology and metaphysics, and is closely related to Hindu Samkhya philosophy.
