About Samatvam

Yoga is a way of conscious living and it strives to bring a balance between all the different layers of human being. Samatvam means equanimity or balance and according to Bhagwat Gita Yoga is equanimity (Samatvam yog uchyate). 

Yoga works on a human being as a whole and does not divide body-mind in a water tight compartments. 

Traditional Yoga

Maharishi Patanjali in the 2nd century systematized and codified the existing knowledge of yoga and gave it to the world in the form of Patanjali yoga sutras. This text comprising of 195 sutras is the foundation and basis of all the practices we do in yoga. The eight fold path called Ashtanga yoga is the foundation of traditional yoga.

There are different paths of yoga like Mantra yoga, Laya yoga, Hatha yoga, Raja yoga with the same goal. The goal of yoga is spiritual but the practices also provide side benefits at pycho-physiological in nature.

All the practices we perform in the form of external yoga is the preparation work for the internal yoga.

I am a lifelong student of Yoga and Vedanta and I love sharing the ancient and wholistic teachings of yoga the way I have learned from my teachers.

I have had the opportunity to learn authentic yoga under the guidance of some of the experienced teachers at Kaivalyadhama, India.Even though I was practicing asana or pranayama from a young age, the training introduced me to the world of yoga in its true sense. I continued my studies under Sudhir Tiwariji after completing my certification and continue to do so.

I passionately share the amazing teachings of Swami Gitananda of Rishiculture Ashtanga yoga tradition and have been studying in the lineage under the guidance of Dr. Ananda Balyogi Bhavnani.

I have been studying Vedanta (Advaita/non dualistic) with Swami Brahmanisthananda Saraswati, a senior disciple of Swami Dayananda Sarawati and founder of Brahma Vidya Gurukulam in Edmonton.

"Cannot say enough great things about Neeru. I was looking for a place close to my work place to practice yoga either at lunchtime or at the end of the day and I found Neeru at Sun Yoga. Neeru teaches traditional Hatha yoga, which is a wonderful technique to relax after a long and stressful day at work. Neru 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 practicing yoga with Neeru has helped to have better posture and to feel better about my low back. I also love her relaxing techniques and her orientation about meditative breathing techniques that help you to relax while being mindful about your body.

I have done yoga before and have never been a huge fan. Yet I keep taking classes with Neeru. She provides modifications and challenges to make her classes for all levels. She has a wonderfully calm energy and really tries to accommodate to everyone. I leave feeling refreshed and relaxed and would recommend yoga with Neeru to anyone who is interested!

Neeru offers authentic yoga sessions that return to the basics of breathe and mindfulness. She's obviously passionate about what she does and makes her classes available to everyone, experienced or not. I have never been disappointed.
