Sharmila Saigaonkar

I am a member of IAYT and Certified Yoga Therapist and a faculty member for Yoga Teachers Training at Hot Yoga Wellness, Ontario. At the teachers training, I teach Yoga and Physiology, Yoga for chronic conditions and science of breathing along with different breathing practices to manage psychosomatic conditions.  My Yoga journey began ten years ago when I attended a 90 minute session at a fundraising event. I was intrigued by the session, understood that yoga is beyond curvy poses.  It is about gaining fitness through wellness and it comes from bringing the balance in our nervous system.  I  decided to join weekly practice to explore further into this field and experienced the mind-body connection, which I never felt before. It was beyond the words and felt the need to share the same with others and decided to explore further into this field. It was a beginning of expressing my experiences through exploring the relationship between my breath, body and my mind.

  • Diploma in Yoga, Yogasadhana, Pune, India.
