"Samatvam Yog Uchyate"

Samatvam means balance and in Bhagwat Gita, Bhagwan Krishna tells Arjuna that yoga is balance, equanimity or a state of equilibrium where there are no extremes. 

The goal of yoga is spiritual but in that process it brings balance and harmony at the physical, mental and emotional well- being. Maharishi Patanjali systematized the eternal teachings of yoga and taught it to his disciples. As a result, we got these teachings in the form of yoga sutras, small aphorisms that revealed the path and goal of Yoga. They form the basis of classical or traditional yoga.

Neeru considers herself a lifetime student of Yoga and Vedanta. Born and raised in India, ancient Indian teachings of Sanatana Dharma were always a part of growing up in the culture. Her mother had a great influence on her and she was her first teacher who introduced her to many scriptures and concepts. 
Hatha yoga came much later during teenage years and as a student, it helped her physically and mentally. Yoga always found ways to bring her back to the practice for one reason to the other. 

Her formal education in Yoga started at Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute where she learned different aspects of yoga under some of the experienced teachers. After getting her teacher training, she continued her studies with Sudhir Tiwariji, son of O. P Tiwari ji who shared his knowledge on this topic generously with her. She has also studied Ayurveda concepts and principles at Kaivalyadhama which is one of her favorite topics and attended various workshops on Pranayama, Dhayana, and other yogic studies.

She was introduced to another lineage; Rishiculture Ashtanga Yoga founded by Swami Gitananda Giri which is based on Bengal Tantra and South Indian Shaivism. For the past few years, she is been studying Yoga step by Step, the Deeper Gitananda series, and Nada Yoga under Dr. Ananda Balyogi Bhavnani, the current lineage holder of the tradition. 

She feels fortunate to be a student of Vedanta under Swami Brahmanishtananda Swarawati in Edmonton and Mantra studies under Pandit Shivshakar Dwivediji.

She has been a student of yoga for more than 25 years now (still learning) and giving group and private yoga classes to adults and seniors in Edmonton for the past 10 years.


Her classes weave the knowledge of yoga philosophy and Ayurveda that goes beyond asana practice.

"Cannot say enough things about Neeru. She teaches traditional hatha yoga which is a wonderful practice to relax after a long day at work. Neeru is very knowledgeable and you can feel her passion for teaching yoga as a way of life. She is also friendly, warm, and very welcoming to new people wanting to practice yoga. I spent all day sitting in front of a computer at work and practising yoga with Neeru has helped tto have a better posture and to feel better about my low back. I also love the relaxaing techniques and her  her orientation towards the breathing and meditative techniques that help you to relawhile being mindful about yourself."
