WELCOME TO YOGA SANGHA
Born out of the need to provide authentic yoga to people overfed on watered-down stretching exercises, we are real sticklers to tradition when it comes to Hatha Yoga, Pranayama and Dhyana.
While there are numerous derivative forms of Yoga available to the urban yoga practitioner, there is marked need for a Yoga Center that teaches the original classical form of Hatha Yoga.
Hatha Yoga, done the way it was traditionally intended, develops strength, flexibility, bodily relaxation and mental concentration.
Karunna has been teaching yoga since 2011.
As a graduate of Alva’s College of Physiotherapy, she decided to forego her physiotherapy practice and embrace Yoga for a holistic approach to health and wellness.
She believes in the classical form of Asana Practice, i.e. Hatha Yoga.
In her free time, Karunna enjoys listening to Kishori Amonkar and Pandit Kumar Gandharva.
Amaresh is a well known yoga master who resides in Bengaluru.
He has been teaching yoga for the past 10 years. He has completed his M.Sc in Yogic Sciences.
With a passion for dances and degrees from Ninasam and Attakalari, Amaresh emphasizes fluidic movement in his teaching.
Till date he has taught over 4,000 students. He specialises in Yoga with Props and is known for his breathtaking poses.
Every Yoga Sangha membership is a dual (online & studio) plan.
While nothing quite compares to the experience of a studio class, our online classes keep your discipline and commitment to yoga intact, even when you're travelling.
Also, given the pandemic situation, many members are choosing to practice from the safety of their own homes.
On signing up for a plan, you will receive a Microsoft Teams invite.
The online and studio schedule remain the same.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Karunna has had the most profound influence on me in terms of helping me realize my own potential and stretch myself beyond what I thought were my limits.
— Name, Title
What is the duration of each class?Each class lasts for 60 minutes. Sometimes, classes do get extended by 5-10 minutes.
What should I eat before the class?Yoga is practiced on an empty stomach. Fruits, dry fruits or milk is permissable just before class. Lght meals require at least 1&1/2 hours gap and in case of a full meal, 3 hours.
Is there a dress code?Please wear loose, comfortable clothing like track pants and tee shirts.
Should we carry our yoga mat?It's a good idea to invest in a good quality yoga mat and carry it to the class. It is not only hygenic, but also comfortable to practice on your own mat.
Is there any etiquette to be followed?Please arrive a few minutes before your class starts. Keep your phone in Silent Mode. Avoid unnecessary small-talk with other members to maintain your focus. During the class, direct your attention inwards and focus on every aspect of the practice; be it the postures, your breath, your emotions and your mind.
