To experience the power of breath through yoga
Anita Vasan understood the transformative power of breath and found yoga while searching for peace and calm amongst the hustle and bustle of NYC life when she was juggling a day job and working in Broadway shows. Visiting her grandparents as a child in India on several occasions, she didn’t realize that a birthplace of yoga was right down the street!
Having experienced deep rooted stress and anxiety, she discovered that the simple practice of being “present” provided immediate relief. She started spending more time in silent meditation and invested in the exploration of breath through the yogic practices of Pranayama, Meditation, and Asana. She also developed a thirst for the wisdom from ancient texts like the Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita from which yoga originated.
Growing up in a family of doctors, healing the mind and body was an innate part of her upbringing. Diving deeper into the practice of yoga, the connection to her Indian roots also deepened. She travelled back to India and around the world, and studied with inspirational teachers like Yogi Charu and Srivasta Ramaswami. Anita also trained at the Sivananda Ashram, Pure Yoga and Modo Yoga.
It is through the study of yoga that Anita has experienced a powerful shift and dramatic reduction in stress and anxiety. This transformation has filled her with a deep passion to share the powerful practice of the breath.
