This and more is what yoga sessions with Sangeetha Bhat entail for her students.
Her Journey So Far:
After the birth of her second child, Sangeetha was exploring ways to reduce her weight(then around 85 kgs). When modern methods did not help her, she decided to give yoga a try. Surprisingly, she not only lost weight but was also able to gain control over her hormonal balance and emotional health.
Curiosity about yoga led her to first become a certified yoga teacher, then pursue her Masters of Science in Yoga from S-VYASA (Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana) University at Jigani, Bangalore. Currently, she is working on her dissertation on “Yoga as a Career option” for grade 11 and 12 students. Sangeetha enjoys working with children & has been associated with National Public School, Yeshwantpur, Bangalore since 2013. Also, she actively takes therapies for obesity, wellness, ailments, pre-natal, post-natal and kids yoga. In July 2016, she started her own small studio named “San_Yoga studio” in Yeshwantpur to spread the knowledge of yoga to more people. She says,
My happiest moments are when my students get their success and control their over ailments through therapy.
After spending years as a homemaker, she decided to go all guns after her passion: to teach and help people through yoga and yogic techniques. And aren’t many of us glad!
How yoga helped me:
What would you call someone who annihilated your mood swings? What about something that made your aches and pains vanish and made your pregnancy feel special: a time filled with abandon gratitude? A magician? That is what Sangeetha is to me and yoga is her magic. Within 3 months of starting practice, my monthly drastic mood changes vanished leaving me wondering why I hadn’t done it before. As a new mother, I had felt disconnected with the world. Yoga helped me “think again” infusing positive thoughts into my brain and got me out of depression. I believe it is her calling: I have been to yoga classes before but none like this one.
She usually starts each class with asking us to thank our parents and teachers who have helped shape us. I want to end this post, by thanking her for her amazing classes and the service she is doing to each of us.
