Yoga Style: As honey is sweet from any part of the honeycomb, so is yoga. It enables every part of the human system to become attuned to its essence, the conscious seer within. Yoga alone enables the practitioner to perceive and experience the world within and around him, to touch the divine joy of all creation, and then to share that nectar of divine wealth and happiness with his fellow beings. Therefore, I follow holistic approach and follow each and every aspect of Yoga styles.
Programs I teach at Siddhi Yoga: I teach yoga anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and functional movements in Yoga to avoid injuries and correct body alignment by postural analysis, I also teach how to correct muscle imbalance, to correct pains related to low back, neck, spondylitis, arthritis, muscle strain, soft tissue injuries, hypertension, thyroid disease, asthma and pregnancy.
