An avid Iyengar yoga practitioner and teacher for 3 years, Reet Chugani has practiced all kinds of yoga for the past 10 years in Hong Kong.
Currently she teaches in mumbai at chakra project, Yoga 101 and other prominent studios.
Strong command, Precise instructions & intuitive usage of props to get the posture alignment - all of this sprinkled with her own humility & humour. That is what makes her class very engaging and hooked - for the practioners.
Currently, She teaches the wednesday 6pm Saturday 8am and restorative yoga on 5pm at Chakra Project, Lokhandwala.
Santhanam Sridharan has been & practicing teaching yoga for the past 10 years having taught in mumbai, bengaluru & sydney. An X-software engineer & an MNNIT graduate, Santhanam gave up the "corporate career" and devoted his life to explore yoga & spirituality . The yearning to understand life beyond the confines of socially-conditioned narratives and material living led him to the path of yoga - it only seems to deepen!
Despite the 10 years experience, Santhanam keeps attending immersive teacher training programs - to deepen the knowledge
In August 2019, he has done the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series teacher training with world renowned Bharat Shetty of IndeaYoga. Alignment, deep breathing & 5 directional holistic approach were explored deep in that.
In 2017, He spent 35 days in Sri Sri School of yoga ashram to further enhance his knowledge and to go deeper into sattic & meditative states.
He keeps doing Courses/ workshops from Svyasa and various other shalas/ ashrams in Bengaluru, Coimbatore, Dharamshala and Sydney.
He has worked with Bharat Thakur's Artistic Yoga's team in the past (2009 - 2012) and experienced many of his "concepts" and "idealogies" broke during that period.
Currently living in Mumbai, he teaches out of "Chakra Project" which is a humble yoga teaching set up he created in Lokhandwala, Chakra project also caters to corporate sessions & personal sessions.
Intense and Meditative is how he likes his yoga and everything else in his life to be. He believes, "When you strive to attain an asana (a yogic posture) in all its perfection, you have no choice but to be transformed for good". The essence of his classes can be categorized as Hatha Yoga, Dynamic Vinyasa flow, modified ashtanga vinyasa flow and in its rudimentary term (and his less than favorite term) "Power yoga". He believes that if a student walks out with more joy than how they walked in to the class, the yoga is achieved. In the long run, he demands from himself a transformation at physical, level, emotional and spiritual levels for his clients.
Other than that he indulges in local hiking, himalayan trip and meditation retreats every chance he gets. Other than that he loves travel, long drives, binges on American TV and personal development programs.
