The connection of Yoga and Dance


Posted on Oct 3, 2019 #fitness

Yoga has been with me since childhood, in schools, and with my family as well. My father (late Mr.) Ramachandra, who was a teacher by profession, was an inspiration for me to dwell deep into the field of health and fitness.

‘An investment in knowledge pays the best interest’

The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice. As my choice, when I was in Hong Kong as full-time dancer and part-time Yoga teacher, I quit my job and returned to motherland to deepen my knowledge in Yoga.

Now I am a Yoga professional, holding a Master degree in Yoga (M.SC. Yoga) from Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana (SVYASA University) and am a certified Level 2 Yoga Teacher from the Quality Council of India (QCI) AYUSH, Cleared NET (National Eligible test) in Yoga and also Ashtanga Vinyasa RYT 500 hour (Yoga alliance).

As a devotee of Nataraja (Shiva) who is known as the "Lord of Dance" and also a source of Yoga, I say dance and yoga goes hand in hand. Everything in this cosmos is dancing (motion) in coordination with energy (vital force).

I have expertise in Hatha Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Power Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yin Yang Yoga, Shat kriyas (cleansing techniques), Pranayama, Meditation, Yogic Anatomy, and Yogic philosophy (Patanjali Yoga sutra).

‘We make living by what we get and we make life by what we give.’

अन्नदानं महादानं विद्यादानमतः परम्।

अन्नेन क्षणिका प्रीतिः यावज्जीवं च विद्यया॥

annadānaṃ mahādānam vidyādānam ataḥ param।

annena kṣaṇikā prītiḥ yāvajjīvaṃ ca vidyayā॥

Translation: Giving food is a great charity; but giving knowledge is a greater one. From the food we get momentary satisfaction. But from knowledge, it lasts the whole life.

I strongle believe and follow above mentioned verse and I have decided already to give my best knowledge to as many people as possibe to make life joyful and peaceful.
