Amritasara is a deeply nourishing and skilled teacher. She is a graduate of the Ashram yoga teacher training course in 2004, and offers something unique and deeply relevant for today's world through her teachings and energies.
Amritasara's first visit to the Ashram in 2001 felt like an instant home-coming! A graduate of the Ashram’s Yoga Teacher Training Course in 2004, she has been teaching Yoga ever since. From a very young age she was always enquiring and felt deeply connected to something deeper. A very serious illness when visiting the Himalayas at 16 gifted her with the knowing that there was more to life than just the body. Her subsequent and profound connection to Swami Nishchalananda over many years has given her the teachings to question yet deeper, allow her heart to open and to listen to the subtleties within. This has enabled her to live with her family on a beautiful farm just over the hills from the Ashram, weaving her yogic path not only on her mat but into everyday life.
She has worked with students of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities. Through her unique gift, her students have found a deep sense of space and awareness in their bodies. They have been able to grow in self-confidence rather than always looking for external support. Amritasara is fascinated by the latest scientific development and research which is proving that slow mindful yoga trains the nervous system to build resilience, adapt to stressors, develop greater patience, and improve overall health and wellbeing.
The fruit of her practice and enquiry to date finds form in the simple and accessible self-study course, Nurturing the Self.
