Our Namaste students are the heartbeat of the studios. We love watching each and every individual learn and grow in their unique way. If you’ve ever wondered who is practicing on the mat next to you… here is your chance to find out!
Introduce yourself! What is your name and how long have you practiced at Namaste?
Hi! My name is Amiti & I’ve been practicing at Namaste since March.
What inspired you to begin a yoga practice?
When I was younger & my mom first introduced me to yoga, I thought it varied between impossible and boring. At some point in high school, I started realizing that yoga was the perfect way to bring awareness to & strengthen my imbalances.
Favorite parts of taking class at Namaste?
I love how the teachers promote individual exploration. While the form of each asana is important, to me the magic of yoga involves the small variations of how you distribute your weight on the floor, or the slightest tilting of your pelvis.
What is your definition of wellness?
Feeling calm and alive. Motivated to take on the world, while feeling centered and in tune with your breath.
One thing people might be surprised to learn about you is?
I’ve visited all 7 continents.
Best advice you could give to someone who is struggling to start their health and wellness journey?
Stop searching for answers in the world around you & start searching within yourself. Decide one habit to incorporate into your life & commit to trying it for 3-4 weeks & feel proud for loving yourself.
