I was born and raised in India and had a career in Computer Science which brought me many comforts allowing me to travel around the world and make a decent living. No matter what goals I achieved in my life outside something was still missing within me.
Then I met Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, my Guru from who I acquired life transforming simple yet powerful tools that we call YOGA. I was introduced to his teachings in the year 2008. Since then, Yoga became a tool that I could use to make my life the way I want it on a day to day basis. I wish everybody gets an opportunity to experience this as well.
As Isha Hatha Yoga Teachers, we went through 5 months of intensive training at Isha Hatha Yoga School, Coimbatore, India founded by Sadhguru. The training was well over 1750 hours. Very diligent care was taken by the School to produce Hatha Yogis and this strong foundation allowed us to naturally blossom into teachers.
I can say this with confidence after practicing pure, authentic, classical Hatha Yoga and watching other's transforming with it, that this tool will help everyone irrespective of where they are in life.
“If you open up your body, mind, and emotions, your life will be pretty good. If you open up your energy system, it will become magical.” - Sadhguru.
This is one of the foundations of Hatha Yoga. Classical Hatha Yoga deals with the energy system not just the body and mind.
All Yoga programs offered by LA Hatha Yoga is designed by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a yogi and profound mystic of our times, a visionary humanitarian and a prominent spiritual leader.
We offer Classical Hatha Yoga programs in California in cities such as Los Angeles, Long Beach, Orange County, Sandiego, Thousand Oaks, Bay area, San Fransisco and more.
If you want to know a little more about me, I would like to share this blog post I wrote right before I went into Hatha Yoga teacher training .
