Aarthi’s Yoga journey started at her home, when she would occasionally attend classes taken by her father in Mumbai. She wasn’t especially engaged with Yoga then, but she always wanted to be physically active, and found a keen interest in endurance sports like long distance running. Specialized in Hata Yoga, Aarthi is currently training in Iyengar Yoga to enhance her repertoire of Yoga for therapeutic purposes. She designs her classes based on the students, acutely aware of their mental and physical challenges and borrows from her 16 years of practice and 9 years of teaching experience. Aarthi has overcome challenges pertaining to anxiety and temper management, and is no stranger to the transformative powers of Yoga. “My self practice and my commitment to learn has driven me to overcome these issues and made me a stronger person in my life to handle many challenges personally and professionally.” She also has spent a decade in corporate life, with a post graduate degree in International Business specialized in HR and Training. A confluence of family commitments and a passion for Yoga prompted her to take up Yoga full time and she has not looked back . “I am loving every moment of my life.”, says Aarthi.
“Yoga means life and existence. I cannot imagine a day without taking a class and my own practice. It’s a part of my breath and my energies are always high whenever I meet my students. It’s a way of bonding with myself and the universe.”
