Anand has been happily engaged in the practice of yoga for the past 10 years, and began teaching yoga in 2013. Using a flexible approach in applying the core principles of yoga to every student’s needs, he has taught many different styles, including Modo, Ashtanga, Chair Yoga, Restorative, Yin, and Flow. From his very first brushes with yoga, the art symbolized for him a potentially powerful tool for self-directed healing. He experienced firsthand the effectiveness of using simple yoga postures and refined breathing to relieve bodily pain, mental stress and erratic energy levels. Anand’s first formal education in yoga was the Advanced Modo Yoga Teacher Training, followed by an advanced training in Flow Yoga, taught by Senior yoga teacher Bibi Rahim-Hahn. As a current Master’s student of Osteopathy, Anand likes to integrate his knowledge of the body’s workings in his classes. Anand’s teaching style is also informed by explorations into many other arts and personal interests, including Buddhist teachings, Mindfulness Meditation, Floatation Therapy and Competitive Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
