Since attending my first yoga class over 20 years ago I felt a great affinity and fascination with yoga and how it can influence our way of being so profoundly on so many levels. My career at the time was research focused in the sciences and yoga became my support and ally through the challenges of research positions and completing a PhD and health problems that arose along the way too. I would attend my weekly yoga classes religiously and started to seek out yoga teachers with depth of experience and knowledge; I yearned to understand more about yoga, its practices and myself. I would spend time out from my research life periodically attending yoga holidays, which brought brightness and life back to body and mind, and great learning about myself on a much deeper level. After completing my PhD life became a little challenging for a while and I lent on yoga to help, attending a teacher training course by a UK based teacher which gave me the catalyst with my research work to find a new home and a new way of living in Australia.

On arriving in Australia I wanted to find authentic teachers of yoga with a deep understanding of this ancient practice whom I could learn the traditional roots of yoga from; I wanted the real deal. I was fortunate enough to come across Shantarasa Yoga in an advert and contacted Keval Pezet. I started attending the weekly chants and began to learn all aspects of this ancient practice, attending and completing the YTT Level 1 and 2, as well as many workshops and activities, including meditation, yogic scriptures, and Sevā practice. During the Level 1 YTT I met Gurudev (Mahāmandaleśvar Swami Nityānanda) who became my Yoga Guru and have spent time in his company in meditation intensives and listening to his discourses of yogic knowledge and its application in our modern lives. Last year enabled the visit to Gurudev's Shanti Mandir Ashram in Magod, Gujarat, India, to train in Meditation and yoga Psychology as well as more in-depth training with YTT Level 2 with Shantarasa Yoga. The resident Ayurvedic Clinic also had a transformative effect on my health and well-being. It is a privilege to share what I've learnt with you and look forward to regular ashram visits to progress personal practice and embrace the learnings to facilitate and share with you.

Nearly three years ago I left my scientific research career behind to pursue the path of yoga in its fullest sense. It is a privilege to offer to you all the learnings from such great teachers. Looking forward to sharing the ancient practices of yoga with you through a private one-on-one session, yoga class, workshop, retreat and other yogic practices and programs offered by Shantarasa Yoga and through Yoga Gnosis.
Much Love and Namaste,
Davina
