Hello, My name is RAD. I love Yoga. I love people and I love life. For me life is an adventure. Im certified HATHA YOGA teacher following the path of ANUSARA YOGA and Shiva- Shakti TANTRA. I am interested in energy healing and meditation. I am certified massage therapist and Reiki practitioner.
I know how much Yoga has influenced and changed my life and I am here to inspire you to give it a GO!
What is Anusara Yoga?
ANUSARA YOGA helps you radically change the way you look at life and recognise the infinite possibilities of your own existence WOW! This unique method of hatha yoga, founded in 1997 by John Friend, become one of the most popular forms of yoga practiced all over the world. Its popularity may have something to do with the positivism of SHIVA - SHAKTI TANTRA philosophy. Anusara Yoga integrates biomechanical principles of alignment with the celebration of the heart and spirit.
Simply - ANUSARA ROCKS! - whenever you do Anusara class you will have a BLAST! It's a balance of playful discovery, mindfulness, challenging physical practice and inspiring philosophy. It is a slower paced yoga focusing on each pose and how to get there, to help build strength, and prevent injury. It is style that puts much emphasis on perfecting alignment, listening to your body, and working within your means as you learn and challenge yourself at your own pace.
GROUP REVIEW / YOGA EXPERIENCE
"Can't imagine a Wednesday without yoga now!! I've now been practising yoga for 6 months. Rad teaches anusara yoga, which is challenging but incredibly rewarding. I've learned that just like riding a bike the first time you do something you have no real idea of the principles involved - going through the motion should be enough. But with yoga it's much more than that. Opening (your heart) to embrace those around you and opening yourself to be the person you know you truly are, are just two of the positive effects of yoga. I've gained confidence, calmness (and an ability to choose calm, which was something that I previously thought that I didn't have a choice in making). My thought processes are clearer and more defined, I'm sleeping better, I'm stronger at the other sports I play and I'm a happier person. This has all been from yoga. "
"I started doing Yoga with Rad almost 1 year ago. It was a time of great change going on in my life, and I wanted to try something new with my physical fitness routine as I was a bit bored of years of going to the gym. In addition to helping me keep fit, Yoga also helped make this time of change easier for me to deal with. I discovered that not only are their physical benefits of Yoga, there are mental and spiritual benefits also.Rad is a patient and kind teacher, and has also gently pushed me to advance in my Yoga. He always explains the benefits of Anusara which I also find helpful. Its been a rather life-changing discovery and I'm grateful to have found it. Thanks!"

"Yoga is the integral part of my daily chore how can i live without it. As heat cannot be separated from fire and light cannot be separated from sun similarly practise of yoga cannot be separated from the divine as it is part and parcel of every living entity. Rad , Anusara Yogi Teacher, has been expert in attempting to balance mind and body through various asanas by means of physical practise and controlled breathing. This has truly benefited me physically and mentally. The immense flow of energy during the practise has improved my flexibility and concentration tremendously and made me over come my stress and anxiety in my daily life. This has further enhanced my relationship with the world itself and how to embrace who we are and be grateful and appreciate the life that is given to us.I only wish that i can continue to strive further and deeper into the spiritual realm and take every opportunity to cultivate the practise in the most ecstatic and blissful platform. As Bhagavad Gita states yoga is the purest and the topmost and gives the direct perception of self realization and everlasting joyful to perform"Darshan, Barking
WHY YOGA? Why we practice YOGA? Why is it that yoga has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, including myself? Because it shows you how to radically change the way you look at life. One of the most powerful aspects of Anusara yoga, and its first principle, is choosing to look for the beauty in every moment. Even in the most difficult and painful times we can find a way to turn towards the light. My love affair with yoga started only a few years ago and looking back at this time I can see this massive progress and transformation in my life and that is one of the reasons I want to teach YOGA to share that incredible experience with others.I want all of my students to leave my class feeling better about himself , empowered by the revelation of his Divine nature.
Its also about CONNECTION with other people and with yourself. Yoga gives you a chance to connect with very essence of your being . Who you really are? Many people in our society go after jobs for the money rather than following what they know in their heart what they are naturally good at and letting those gifts guide them. As a result, they are miserable and their overall energy, enthusiasm, creativity and even health is diminished. When we align with our gifts and talents and offer them to others, we feel joy, we feel happy because we are, in essence, offering the deepest part of ourselves and nothing could be more in alignment and more fulfilling than that.
Do you ever feel alone? A sense of alienation (or aloneness) is actually an epidemic in our culture. But what if that aloneness was actually serving a purpose? What if it was there to open you to a deeper understanding of who you really are? And w hat if your true nature is oneness... the very opposite of aloneness? Yoga helps you experience a shift from aloneness to oneness, experiencing a deep peace within and knowing that you are not alone -- that you are at one with all of life.
