Our Master Sneha Desai
Sneha Desai has been a student of yoga since 2004 and has obtained her RYS 400 Hours TTC under the guidance of her mentor Shilpa Ghatalia, at Yogshakti, Kuala Lumpur in 2013, which was an absolute life-transforming experience for her. Since then, she has never looked back. She has found her forte in Yin and Yang Yoga & has been teaching this lesser-known yogic practice in Mumbai since 2014. A rare form of yoga being practiced there, she soon started spreading the teachings of Yin, which was very well received by her students, and some of them are still practising with her. To practice this form of yoga under her guidance, watch this free session below courtesy ThinkRight.me.
In a live yoga workshop at 9:30am on the 1st of January 2022, Sneha Desai will address your alignment and flexibility-related issues and teach you simple Yin postures and Chakra Meditation via Zoom to improve your overall health and lifestyle.
