With a passion for health and life, for Payal, yoga is nurturing, soothing and empowering. She believes Yoga & Meditation takes care of developing and ‘discovering’ ourselves on all levels: physical, emotional, psychological, intellectual and spiritual. She completed her Yoga Teacher Training with Yogalife® in Dharamsala, India & several modules of Prana Flow® in Europe. Fascinated by human biology, health and science drove her to study Biomedical Engineering in India, Germany and Switzerland where she worked in the corporate world in the field of Oncology & Imaging. She is born and brought up in Dubai and has spent a few years in India where she first stepped on the mat at the age of 17. She realizes that the world of inner engineering of yoga and that of health engineering are very similar at their core, both understanding the ‘process’ of living and finding solutions to lead a healthy life.She is patient and loves to teach and learn constantly from inspiring teachers from different parts of the world such as Rod Stryker, Elena Brower, Shiva Rea, Poonam Stecher Sharma, Max Strom, Sanjeev Bhanot and others. Teaching a combination of different forms of Hatha yoga she has always tried to spread the joy of Yoga on and off the mat.
Her interests are in Yoga, Ayurveda and other spheres of Eastern Medicine. She has experience in scientific biomedical research with a publication on music meditation. She loves her subjects of Anatomy, Physiology and Neuroscience that makes the human body the most fascinating to learn about. She truly believes the world needs more of yoga & meditation to lead a mindful, balanced , conscious & fulfilled life.
Reshape the Unconscious // Hatha Prana Yoga
Hatha Prana is a breath inspired flow that offers a complete spectrum (ha-tha) of rhythm from meditative and rejuvenating to the challenging and empowering. We will go through an effective and creative sequence linked together through the breathwave. Moving rhythmically from one asana to the next, expanding our practice, strengthening the body & calming the mind, this class is suitable for anyone with some yoga experience wishing to take their practice to the next level to connect the body, breath and mind.
The session ends with a unique practice of Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a science of complete relaxation. It is a method for maximizing health and wellbeing on the most basic level. On a deeper spiritual level, it is one of the most profound and accessible ways to positively reshape the unconscious. We are not only relaxing the, but restructuring & reforming our whole personality from within.
