About The Teacher
Yog Ved Shala’s founder Shraddha Vora is a certified Sivananda Yog teacher, and has spent more than ten years at the Iyengar School of Yoga, out of which she spent six years in Pune and had the privilege to study under Guruji Shri BKS Iyengar.
Shraddha is a devoted Vipassana meditator, which plays a big role in her personal practise, and thus in her teaching approach. In addition, Shraddha holds a diploma from the Tilak Maharashtra University in Ayurveda. She incorporates the knowledge and understanding of natural healing, compiled by Sage Patanjali, in all her classes, as she believes it to be of equal relevance as the study of Yog.
For her, Yog is not only the practise of physical postures, but following her desire to help her students to realise their full potential in this world. She believes in the relevance of the inward journey, and, by moving to the more subtle layers of our beings, to reach levels of enlightened consciousness through purity, contentment, austerity, self-study, and eventually surrender.
