These classes help kids empathise with others: identify, evaluate, control and express emotions in more creative ways; helping them build focus and develop social skills. Not to mention the practice will make them stronger and more flexible not just in the body but the mind too!
For Dhara, her journey into the world of yoga began at the age of 13 when she accidentally came across a book of asanas in her fathers library. Not knowing the true art, science and philosophy of this ancient wisdom, she innocently kept replicating the asanas in the book secretly in her room. The freedom and joy she felt doing those poses back then led her to dream about teaching Yoga when she grows up to be an old lady. But destiny had plans for her to follow the dreams much sooner than what she had dreamed.
My first encounter with Yoga was in 2002, when I was forced to do a 7 days health camp to accompany a friend who found it boring to go alone, followed by being persuaded to accompany for a teacher's training course for the similar reason, happy days started for me. From being a Commerce graduate to a Postgraduate in Business to working as a Litigation Support Specialist in London, Yoga has been a strong part of my everyday living, be the practices of the techniques or living the philosophy. The entire way of living my life has changed. Issues started coming with a solutions, I started to look at stress as a strong reason to get into relaxation, my faith in the silver lining of the cloud started to grower stronger. My journey from a Yoga Novice to a Phd student has been quite an interesting one.
