Exploring yogic philosophy and concepts through practice
Mondays @1:30pm w/ Shuba Wavikar
} w/ regular class passes
We will start each class by reading about, or discussing, a principle or concept from yoga philosophy. We will then explore it, and experience it, through our practice. We will consider ways to apply it to our modern daily life.
This class will be slower paced, and more static than a flow class. We will practice āsana, breathwork, meditation, and mudras. We will look at some stories that inform āsana names.
It’s a great class for beginners, as well as anyone looking to deepen and evolve their practice. We will use props as needed, and modifications will be offered.
Originally from India, I see yoga as a way of life, a philosophy for living. I have great appreciation for the mind, body, breath and soul connection of yoga. I am deeply interested in all of yoga’s teachings and practices – including, and beyond, āsana.
Yoga, to me, is an incredible – often transformative – blessing that should be accessible to everyone – to all bodies and all abilities. I embarked on the teaching journey a few years ago to deepen my own practice, and to be able to humbly share this legacy with others. Each student is a teacher, and I look forward to a continued exchange of learning.
I 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 trained as a Divine Sleep ® Yoga Nidra teacher. I am also a certified Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) Teacher (for kids’ yoga), and teach at a daycare. I have several continuing education hours in senior yoga, and teach chair yoga at three senior living facilities. When not on my mat, I love being outdoors, gardening and hiking.
