YogTapas with Bhavana
About My Practice
Practising yoga since 2009,
Bhavana decided to study Yoga with deeper intensity and passion since 2015. Bhavana did not feel the need to continue with her corporate job of 15 years as she wanted to give more time to study Yoga. Bhavana completed her teacher training at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala in 2015. She stayed at Pune for a month and studied Yoga at RIMYI in 2016 and went for a repeat study in 2018.
She now continues to practice Iyengar yoga as a student feeling a strong connection to the methods which encourage practitioners to perform asanas in a safe and effective way using the assistance of props.
Her tireless self practice regime, her passion and her discipline has helped Bhavana to develop into an insightful teacher. Her learning has not stopped as she continues to now study with master teachers like Firooza Ali Razvi and has attended classes and workshops with many senior teachers like Prashant Iyengar, Geeta Iyengar, Jawahar Bangera, Siddharth Bangera, Zubin Zartoshtimanesh, Usha Devi, Manouso Manos.
