Kanika is a practitioner and an experienced yoga professional with diverse experience in the fields of yoga, health and wellness. Over the past 10 years, she has integrated in her sessions an emphasis on breathing, physical and mental well being, element of introspection as well as practical aspects of yoga and meditation.
Her interest in yoga asanas developed as a child out of curiosity, but it was only during her teens that it became a part of her daily life . Gifted with curious, inquisitive mind and a seeker’s spirit lead kanika to read and explore more about yoga and spirituality -yoga as science, philosophy, art and self-exploration . Soon it became clear that yoga was her calling. Kanika has received her teacher’s training from two prestigious schools (traditions) of yoga: Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram (Kerala) and later on extended advanced studies with Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (Chennai) following the lineage of Sri T Krishnamacharya and Sri TKV Desikachar.
Kanika’s teaching style is firmly rooted in the classical styles of yoga and at the same time blending in the improvisations to suit different requirements. Whether it is flowing vinyasas or holding challenging asanas or relaxing stretches, her carefully designed classes and precise instructions gently encourages students to deepen their yoga practice. Proper form, focused breathing, spirit of introspection and self exploration are important aspects of her sessions. Kanika continues to learn and explore the path of yoga and wellbeing through different channels and modalities. Her interest in health and fitness led her to complete her advanced studies as a Health and Behaviour Modification Psychologist and has completed fitness courses from ACE, Pilates and Reebok.
