More about the teacher, Divya:
"I was first introduced to yoga by my mother, way back when I was 12 years old and thought it was the least cool thing to do. I reconnected with it some years later, shortly after I started working in the hospitality industry for fitness. I used a Sivananda Yoga book and did what I could with the limited guidance. In 2013 I moved to New Delhi, by which time I was quite enthusiastic about practising yoga and joined my first ever Sivananda Hatha yoga class. I loved it. I did it every day, and I felt benefits beyond physical health that I did not expect to find. Living in the rowdy capital drove me to look inward for peace and quiet. The pace at which I advanced in my practice was credit to my teachers. I felt more confident and willing to push myself knowing that there was someone to not only encourage me, but to ensure that I didn't do anything that would cause injury. I have never understood was why yoga is considered a luxury activity that should cost so much. I feel that it's something that should be affordable and accessible to whoever it seeks it. So, after many years of practising, I did my yoga teacher certification course in Kerala in January 2015 and have since been teaching those who want to learn, starting from the basics and celebrating their progress with them."
