Chaya strongly believes in the quote “Take care of your body, it is the only place you have to live”. Her thirst for exploring different ways to stay fit has taken her on a roller coaster ride of weight training, Pilates, Zumba, Aerobics, swimming, dancing, Martial arts, Basketball and trekking. She is also armed with a degree in Mechanical engineering and worked in the field of telecom, technical marketing, and has some experience in management. She is an avid gardener, and gardening helps her connect with Mother Nature on a deeper level. “My real understanding of Yoga began when I did my RYT 200 hour Teacher Training Course, which gave me a deeper insight into the practice. My quest for knowledge began to unfurl and that’s how my journey began”. She realized that there was no better way to engage her passion for a healthy lifestyle and to spread its message, than becoming a Yoga teacher. She moved out of her corporate life and has been teaching since 2010. Her focus while teaching is a balanced class with a dynamic flow, but with emphasis on breath awareness and mindfulness. “Besides being able to understand my body and it’s limitations, Yoga has helped me be consciously aware of my breath, extend my meditation time by being able to remain still for longer, and has led to an increase in my level of patience. With time, I see a subtle transformation to a calm, more introspective and a happy ‘me’”.
“Yoga is “not a ‘medical fix’ but it is a lifestyle which is sensitive and responsive to all dimensions of the body, mind and spirit. Through Yoga, I believe that each one of us can work towards achieving our highest potential of well- being”.
