Our Teachers

Reshma

Reshma is the Founder and Director of Prabhathika Yoga Sutra. Her aim is to make Yoga teacher training reachable to everyone in order to help students from various backgrounds and cultures from all around the world to experience the mystical powers of the Nature and the inspiration it has bestowed upon Yogis for centuries. So she started Yoga Teacher Training In India through Prabhatika Yoga Sutra.

She is a certified RYT 200 and RYT 500 yoga instructor who likes to connect the eastern philosophies of Yoga to the contemporary west. She was born in a devout spiritual Hindu family and from an early age understood and learnt the concepts of Mantra chanting, Yoga philosophy, the art of Vipasana and Meditation from her grandmother. Living in Trivandrum surrounded by temples, churches and Mosques, she always finds the place to do meditation and chanting.

Her classes are subtle but intense connecting every movement to the breath or “PRANA” the life force and vitality of our spirit. She believes that every relaxed and comfortable pose is a Yoga pose and that a true Yogi should be very comfortable with their body and its limitations.

Being a pure Bhakti Yogini at heart, her approach to the Yogic philosophy starts from the core of her inner self. She says that to understand the higher consciousness, it is very important to know the real self. Only through the journey of heart one can enter the gateway of cosmic love. To enter Yoga, must drop one’s logic and ego and eventually conquer the Mind. She believes that the “Mastery of mind” indeed is the goal of Yoga and its practitioner. There is no higher goal than this.
