Shubhada Wavikar, Yoga Instructor
Originally from India, I see yoga as a way of life, as a philosophy for living. Yoga, to me, is an incredible – often transformative – blessing that should be accessible to everyone – to all bodies, minds and abilities. I started on the yoga instructor journey a few years ago to deepen my own practice, and to be able to humbly share this legacy with others. My students have ranged from 3 years old (kids’ yoga) to 100 years old (chair yoga). Each has taught me something, opened my mind to new experiences, new ways of thinking about yoga. And I hope they have felt, in one way or another, touched by the magic of yoga.
I am a registered yoga instructor, and received my 200 hour and 300 hour teacher training at The Yoga Studio in Millis, MA, and an additional 300 hour teacher training at Down Under Yoga, MA. I am currently enrolled in a part online teacher training program with an Institute in India, and I am also trained in yoga nidra and kids’ yoga.
I am deeply interested in all of yoga’s teachings, its ideology and practices. This is such a vast field of knowledge, that one lifetime is too short to explore it. I am a keen student of yoga history, anatomy, Sanskrit, subtle body concepts like chakras, and of course, philosophical underpinnings from the Bhagwad Gita, the Yoga Sutras and Samkhya philosophy. When not on my mat, I love being outdoors, gardening and hiking. I’m also a voracious reader and a lover of murder mysteries 🙂
