The Balanced Warrior
with Amit Sahasrabudhe
A sequence that begins with a gentle warm up, progressing into a challenging series of balance and warrior postures that will encourage inner strength and mental focus. The final portion of class will bring you back to stillness with five minutes of silent meditation. Some transitions will be difficult, therefore this class is best suited for Level 1+ - Level 2 students.
Though a person of Indian heritage, growing up in the US, my exposure to yoga was at best very minimal. My entire life was spent pursuing a career in allopathic medicine, and it wasn’t until 2008 that I started practicing yoga. What started as an alternative workout strategy has developed into a philosophical journey, exploring beyond the physical asana practice. Yoga has helped me drown out the noise in my mind, and of the world, while giving me a path to channel my inner intensity in a calm & focused manner.
TEACHER MISSION STATEMENT
My mission as a yoga teacher is to create a space where students can explore the transformative power when uniting mind, body, and breath. My intention is to help individuals cultivate a greater sense of self-awareness and inner peace through the practice of yoga. I believe that yoga has the potential to eliminate suffering and promote well-being on all levels. As a teacher, my goal is to guide students in developing a sustainable yoga practice that supports their physical, mental, and emotional health, while also inspiring them to bring the principles of yoga off the mat and into their daily lives.
Yoga, for me, is a way of life. My parents named me Amrita and I grew up in India, in a large joint family, watching my grandfather and father have a daily yoga practice that was permanently woven into their lives.
My early memory of yoga is learning breathing techniques and basic postures from my maternal grandmother when I visited her over summers, on the front patio of our ancestral home in South India. My aunt would then lead us through meditation sessions at the rooftop of the same home. I started learning yoga more formally as part of my school curriculum, starting in 5th grade. I was 10 years old.
When I moved to the US as an adult, I sought out a teacher whom I ended up connecting strongly with, based on the values and principles that I believe yoga is about. Yoga, to me, is not just “an exercise” but a practice that connects my movement to my breath, allowing me to go within and come out of my practice feeling peaceful, energized, strong and balanced.
TEACHER MISSION STATEMENT
I see myself firstly as a lifelong student of yoga, and now a guide, albeit trained to be a yoga teacher. I see my role as one to lead you through a practice that is already within you.
Slow Flow & Core Strength
11:00 AM-12:15 PM
with Amrita Sahasrabudhe
This class focuses on the balance between steadiness and ease in practicing yoga. While building core strength, this will be a slow flow through most classic postures of yoga, giving students the opportunity to find a connection between breath and movement, and find balance between sthira (steadiness) and sukha (ease) in their postures.
