200+Hour Ready-to-Lead Training, 2018, 200
This is Neel Chaudhary. I was born and raised in India and moved to the United States almost 12 years back. Being of Indian origin, I have always been exposed to Yoga and meditation practice. However, I started doing yoga in my mid 20s as I was sick all the time and one of friend mentioned me to try it. Just after few classes, Yoga and meditation became my lifestyle. It did improve my relationship with myself and gave me more sense of self. I came to United States and started looking for yoga centers here and then found Bikram Yoga. I started practicing it and initially it was challenging but I just kept going. To be honest, Bikram yoga was good but somehow their philosophy never resonated with my true self. They always yelled “No pain, No gain” and it never made sense to me. I used to practice meditation by Deepak Chopra and was searching something online about it him and I came across the article about Tara Stiles and her philosophy of yoga. I just googled about her and found so many YouTube videos and I started practicing and then there was WOW factor about her style of practice. I realized that all these years I was mixing yoga with achieving endpoint in poses but it’s not Yoga. After practicing her style for many years, I recently took her training in July 2018 and I must say it was the best decision ever made. I am so excited to share this knowledge with people around the world. Doing Yoga with love and ease gives access to your deeper self, and I am ready to share!
