Traditional Yogic styles will helps to reduce anxiety and stress by reducing the cortisol level and enhancing the alpha brain wave by mindfulness practice. Traditional styles of yogic practices makes the body stable and calms the mind, balances the functions of the neuroendocrine system, thereby enhances the immune system. What is Yoga: yoga is all about oneness, experience of oneness, feeling of harmony. Samatvam Yoga Uchyate” Yoga is balanced state of the body and mind. yoga which is much deeper than what we understand not limited to physical postures. Yoga is a cure for the mind to become perfectly steady and peaceful. Why Yoga: Yoga is to maintain equilibrium of the mind in any situation. This equanimity of mind is the ultimate objective of yoga. Research has shown that every thought in the mind affects the brain, nervous system and all other organs in the body. Negative thoughts and emotions disturb the balance of the nervous system and all other organs. This is the cause of all diseases of the body and mind, so control of the mind is essential for physical and mental health.

Personalised session: Yoga plan routines that incorporate the traditional style Hatha Yoga/ Vinyasa/Iyengar/Ashtanga/Vivekananda mix Style etc. you want deep stretches, Slow Flow, faster paced flows with and repetitive movements which can help you to work towards your goal. Each class will be tailored exactly to choice of yours unique Yoga style, goals, needs and body. There are so many different types of yoga out there, whether you want a more physically demanding class or an easy, relaxing, meditative class. With each style a bit different from the others, you'll find variations depending on your level. Let me guide you to understand the basics. Hatha yoga: Sanskrit term "hatha" is an umbrella term for all physical postures of yoga. Hatha yoga classes are best for beginners since they are usually paced slower than other yoga styles. Hatha classes today are a classic approach to breathing and yogic practice. If you are brand-new to yoga, hatha yoga is a great entry point to the practice. In the hatha yoga simply refers to all the other styles of yoga (ashtanga, Iyengar, etc.) that are grounded in a physical practice. The physical-based yoga is the most popular and has numerous styles. However, there are other branches of yoga such as kriya, raja, and karma yoga that are separate from the physical-based yoga practice. Vinyasa means: Many Styles of yoga can also be considered vinyasa flows such as ashtanga, power yoga, and prana. In vinyasa , the movement is coordinated with your breath and movement to flow from one pose to another. Vinyasa styles can vary depending on the teacher, and there can be many types of poses in different sequences. I teach an alignment-based mix style of vinyasa, Hatha, Astanga and Iyengar new flows every time, but I also like to hold some of the poses a bit longer after warming up. Iyengar Style: This style focuses on alignment as well as detailed and precise movements. In an Iyengar class, students perform a variety of postures while controlling the breath. Iyengar Style Generally, poses are held for a long time while adjusting the minutiae of the pose. Iyengar relies heavily on props to help students perfect their form and go deeper into poses in a safe manner. Although you won't jump around, you will definitely get a workout and feel incredibly open and relaxed after an Iyengar class. This style is really great for people with injuries who need to work slowly and methodically. Ashtanga yoga: you can practice this form of yoga together at your own pace—it's expected of you to know the series. Vinyasa yoga stems from ashtanga as the flowing style linking breath to movement. Vinyasa yoga stems from ashtanga as the flowing style linking breath to movement involves a very physically demanding sequence of postures, so this style of yoga is definitely not for the beginner. It takes an experienced yogi to really love it. Bikram Yoga style : The sequence includes a series of 26 basic postures, with each one performed twice. Many of these poses are focused on proper alignment. Teacher Bio: I earned a Postgraduate and Master's Degree in Yogic Science (Integrative Medicine) from an accredited one of the prestigious premiere Yoga Universities in India. I got accepted as a Yoga Therapist at the All India Institute of Medical Science. I’ve been studying and practicing Yoga, meditation techniques, its philosophies as an expert and independent yoga researcher teacher which will help me to begin pursue P.hd in Yogic science. Teacher Journey: I started my yoga journey “unity of mind, body, and consciousness” 15-20 years ago introduced by my family. Yog is not just a physical exercise, it's a simple way of living a healthy life, it is a lifestyle. Yoga is a holistic and integral science of life dealing with the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health of the individual and society. It is a way of life that provides a rare opportunity to leave the madness of the world behind and attain inner peace. Yoga is the original mind-body medicine and is one of the greatest treasures of the unique Indian cultural heritage. At Present, I am studying alternative Natural system of medicine known or translated as Science of Life "sister science of Yoga". Yoga deals with the harmonizing of mind, body, and soul while the Life of science takes care of the person’s both physical and mental wellbeing through the means of diet and lifestyle changes. Both the discipline of yoga and The Science of Life and Longevity focused on being in tune with your bodies and utilizing the healing power of nature to get the best results. The state where the physical body, senses, mind, and soul are integrated. So you see that whether you are talking about yoga or knowledge of life, it is a state of unity — or complete integration of mind, body, and consciousness — that is the goal. Yoga literally means "union" or "to join" in Sanskrit. It has the same root that gives rise to the English word "yoke," as in "to yoke together," and refers to the union of body, mind, and soul. Yoga helps the mind become stronger by connecting the mind with the Self, the Atma. I have been working as a corporate yoga and mindfulness meditation teacher. As an experienced practitioner, my goal has been to help your body and mind connect. Situated in the Mountain View San Francisco Bay Area, I incorporate a variety of traditional practices in movement, breath, and mindfulness meditation to help each student practice their own unique form. Today, I am fortunate enough to share all that I’ve learned with you.

It can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia. It is a great way to get in tune with your body and your inner self.

Improve your physical strength and flexibility Increased muscle strength and tone Improved respiration, energy, and vitality Maintaining a balanced metabolism Weight reduction Cardio and circulatory health Improved athletic performance Protection from injury Strengthen your immune system Better align your body Improve your sleep Enhance your focus and creativity Mental benefits of Yoga: Aside from the physical benefits, one of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, which is known to have devastating effects on the body and mind. Stress can reveal itself in many ways, including back or neck pain, sleeping problems, headaches, drug abuse, and an inability to concentrate, Yoga can be very effective in developing coping skills and reaching a more positive outlook on life. I love to see people laugh and put a smile on their faces. Anytime I'm doing that I'm just happy. Yogic Science believes that your physical well-being resorts to your emotional wellbeing. Yoga is all about embracing your life and helping in maintaining a balance in your mind, body, and your inner consciousness for a healthy, peaceful and happy life. Yoga’s incorporation of meditation and breathing can help improve a person’s mental well-being. Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention, and sharpens concentration and self-awareness. I believe in living a life filled with joy and gratitude. These feelings inform and guide my teaching and practice, which is focused on helping my students better connect to themselves and their surroundings. I am passionate about sharing my love of yoga, healing Meditation, and teaching with an authentic and fun approach. I had a personal liking for yoga and meditation since my school days. I have been practicing yoga and meditation for years and I am extremely dedicated to creating a nurturing and safe environment for students to support inward focus and exploration of the body, mind, and spirit for students of all levels. While working as a Yoga and meditation teacher I was responsible for learning and implementing the curriculum and working with the students both as a group and on a one-on-one basis. This experience has honed my physical ability to demonstrate the various positions and techniques and it has also sharpened my knowledge of them. I am also very much a people person and therefore I am quite comfortable working with the public. I love practicing yoga and meditation which has made me energetic, calm, and enthusiastic. I bring the same positive energy to my class. ​ I possess sound knowledge about yoga movements such as asanas and Healing Meditation techniques. Moreover, I am well versed in the relaxation and breathing methodologies and their principles. Breathing and Meditation can help improve a person’s mental well-being. Healing Meditation: Healing Breathing meditation and relaxation methods are especially good for people first learning to meditate. For beginners, Quieting the mind for long periods is more difficult than it looks, carve out 10 to 20 minutes a day at first. All you'll need is a quiet space where you won't be disturbed. Healing Meditation can help reduce anxiety. II Healing Meditation III Healing Guided Meditation IV Healing Images Therapeutic Yoga: People struggling with chronic pain or other medical conditions can use healing meditation to feel better in body and spirit. Regular yoga and meditation can help relieve stress, improve your ability to focus, and lead to a better understanding of your own thought patterns and processes.

Goal: The ultimate goal of both yoga and the Science of life is to help you in becoming your healthier and more balanced version of yourself.

I contacted Nisha to lead a yoga practice during my best friend’s bachelorette weekend. She was super easy to work with, and took all of our experience and skill level into consideration. She was super prompt, changed during the practice when we were feeling a little too challenged (we were all stiff from a night out the evening prior), and made us all feel so comfortable. Nisha is the sweetest, and I loved getting to work with her. I would absolutely recommend her for group or solo practice. Thank you again!

Details: 9 students • 23 - 30 years old • 31 - 40 years old • No yoga preference • Beginner • Meditation • Relaxation • My home, venue, etc.

She responded to my inquiry fast and was personable as well as professional. We ended up going a different route because of COVID safety issues but we could tell she would have been a terrific choice for my daughter and her husband, whom I was gifting the yoga session! I will definitely contact her in the future.
