    I discovered yoga in 2003. What began as an occasional practice became a passion that added another element to my overall fitness and a pursuit of relaxation. It has provided me with much-needed space to focus inwards and forget about the world outside. My intense love of challenging sequences and yoga flows give me a voracious appetite for physical exertion in general. Each day I strive for a balanced life with my family, friends, health, and personal growth. I have always been very active and passionate about fitness and overall wellness. I have over 20 years of fitness experience. I believe everything combined creates a great balance for mind, body and spirit. Apart from all, I'm a proud Mother, Wife and full time Banker. I completed my RYT 200-hour Teacher Training course in June 2014 with Holistic Bodyworx. I have been teaching at Indian Yoga & Meditation Centre Inc ever since. I focus on how the power of yoga can transform not just the body but also the mind and soul. I'm very excited to share my journey as a Yoga teacher and create beautiful movement in a place surrounded by wonderful students. I look forward to meeting you, and guiding you through your practice! Namaste Sally DaRosa "Count your blessings and live your adventure"

    I have always been very attracted to, and passionate about Yoga, Yogic philosophy and in turn maintaining a strong Yogic mindset. Last 5 years have been very transformational as I have had opportunity and time to dig deeper and have tried to understand the core of Yogic literature.Yoga is an integral part of life and should be seen the same way, it does not begin and end at Yoga mat.Yoga pulls me naturally and that successively led me to complete my formal education in Yoga.

    Let’s prepare and gather all the reverence and come to the mat. Namaste

    Sonia’s path to a yoga lifestlye began during her childhood as she was exposed to yoga from a young age. Her mother, an avid yogi was always involving and inspiring Sonia which has instilled the passion and principles she brings to her offerings. The corporate life was consuming and it wasn’t until recently she decided to veer off the familiar path and explore her love for yoga. Sonia believes that following a yogic path is truly life changing and benefits you in an absolute positive way. Sonia has completed the 200 hour YTT program  and is a Registered Yoga Teacher. During her time as a YTT student she learned to heal, forgive, evolve and open up to new possibilities. She is excited to bring her lifelong calling to students and classrooms and looks forward to sharing her energy with you.

    Namaste!! I am Vidhya and I have been practicing yoga at the Indian yoga center for the last 5 years. My love and passion for yoga has driven me to take my practice to the next level and become a yoga teacher. Yoga has helped me with a deep sense of fulfillment and joy within. I love the challenge through yoga postures to work on various muscles, joints, tissues and ligaments at much deeper level. Yoga is all about doing the practice respecting the safe limits and maintaining body comfort and steadiness in all the postures as said by the great sage Patanjali "Sthiram Sukhum Asanam". Hope to see you soon and help you to walk through wonderful yoga journey!!

    Namaste everyone! 

    I am Gupteswari Vasupilli shortly called Eswari. I am privileged to be your instructor at Indian Yoga. I have been practicing Yoga from the past 7 years. After those 7 years of Yoga practice as a housewife, I have seen major positive transformations in my personal and family life which enabled me to understand more about inner peace and strength. I found myself fortunate to be able to pursue my practice one level up by becoming a yoga instructor and become qualified as a certified yoga trainer. I was a  student of Indian Yoga since past 2 Yrs. Sarabjit’s exceptional and extensive training in the study of Yoga Training has led me to study a variety of healing techniques and asanas. I am good at alignment-based asanas to enhance the connection of the energetic and physical bodies, thereby enhancing the yoga poses' benefits and healing effects. I also combine my knowledge of human anatomy and experience in working with the physical limitations of the yoga student. 

    Namaste and humble pranams to the inner soul.

    I found yoga in 2000 and fell instantly in love. In 2013 I started my first 200 hr Hatha teaching training followed that up with a second 200 hr training under Brad Waites of Purna Yoga. I have studied adjustments with Power Yoga Canada as well as Meditation with Downward Dog Yoga in Toronto. It was there that I was introduced to Ashtanga yoga, my one and true love, my "moving meditation". I started studying with Dave Robson of Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Toronto and finally made my way to MySore, India to complete my 300 hr teacher training receiving my Ashtanga certificate.
     
    My passion is introducing this style of yoga to new students and watching them blossom as they gradually take on poses that they never imagined they'd ever be able to do. I also like to keep my classes focused but still have a light and fun feel to them so come prepared to play.
