We all have different needs and goals, therefore not every class is meant for every student. First, we need to learn the fundamentals of yoga, so that our practice bears fruit and we evolve and affect positive change. Yoga has the potential to improve focus and concentration, brighten our mood and access deeper levels of calm, help us sleep better, reduce pain and stiffness as well as allowing for more oxygen throughout the body. My students have shared many stories with me of wonderful improvements both on and off the mat -this is why I teach!
It brings me great joy to help affect positive change in my student's lives. join me.
"ONCE SOMEONE TRYS THIS CLASS THEY WILL WANT TO DO IT EVERY WEEK OR EVERYDAY EVEN!"
"ASHA HAS MADE ME LOVE YOGA. I EVEN PURCHASED MY OWN MAT, SHE IS EXTRAORDINARY."
For several years I was a huge fan of Asha’s weekly class at a local rec center, appreciating her attention to both our physical and spiritual wellness. It was clear she was a yoga veteran with decades of experience even in India. Even in a class of 10 or 15, she took time for individual adjustments and always provided ways for members to make their practice safer and less strenuous, or more challenging, as desired. When Covid hit, I stepped back from yoga and didn’t pursue online options, but a worsening health issue made me approach Asha about private instruction. Since we began she has insisted on virus safety, always wearing a mask, social-distancing as much as possible, and meeting me in well-ventilated indoor areas, or even outside on my deck. She has been keenly observant of my particular issues and seems wholly committed to tailoring my practice to boost my overall strength, balance and most important, safety with my particular condition. Especially when I’m battling a rare and progressive health problem, having Asha on my wellness team is invaluable.
"I NEVER LIKED YOGA BEFORE I CAME TO YOUR CLASS."
"A FEW PRIVATE SESSIONS WITH ASHA CHANGED EVERYTHING ABOUT MY PRACTICE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER."
"YOUR INSTRUCTION HAS MADE YOGA POSSIBLE FOR ME.
I CAN NOT THANK YOU ENOUGH."
ASHA is a highly knowledgeable, caring instructor who guides her classes with integrity and calm. This creates a comfortable atmosphere where everyone can feel they are welcome and safe, no matter what their skill or experience level with yoga. Asha takes time to know her pupils and ensure they are performing the different poses and postures in a safe and constructive manner. Her yoga classes are a warm and welcoming place where I have both improved my yoga practice and enjoyed the ongoing process. I often recommend her.
My personal meditation practice for the past 28 years informs all that I do. It grounds me in my being and life in a way that allows for space. Space in my being as well as space in my interactions with others. One of my favorite benefits I experience from being a regular meditator is mental clarity. This is a priceless gift especially in this age of over stimulation and distraction. Being able to focus and rest my awareness within is one of the greatest blessings in my life.
"For me meditation has been a simple way to clear my mind and center myself."
I am available for group or one on one meditation sessions.
