Ayesha (Former Teacher & Partner)

Namaste I am Ayesha, a Yoga Instructor, trained in India under Master Teachers from ‘The Yoga Institute’ in Bombay (which is the Oldest organised Yoga Institute in the world, established in 1918). I am a qualified RYT 900 Classical Yoga Teacher.

“You are where you are, of course with memories of the past and dreams for the future, but this present is the moment that is” and Yoga confirms this belief of mine.

Growing up in many cities of India, studying in the US, returning back and working in Chennai, India and spending a little time in France left me with many diversified experiences. Questioning my limitations and social norms became second nature. Somewhere the question “who am I” became a constant echo within me.

My experiments with food, lifestyle, traveling, dualities and the mind-body-soul took priority. As this journey commenced I encountered, what still seems like my greatest loss, my mother’s rapid death. It imbalanced me but also gave me a great insight into the process of dying, and the fragility and importance of LIFE. The fear of death left me, for it already took what was most sacred to me. Yoga has taught me to regain balance and to accept the PRESENT as it is.

Yoga is experiential, it is your own connection with your true self and in this great circle of life, where all are teachers and all are students, I open my heart space to share and exchange my experiences and learnings with all those who may be interested.
