Everything in life is writable you just have to find the courage to write it.
I’m thrilled you’ve decided to stop by. I’ve been a passionate Yoga student and teacher since 2006.
I come from a family of strong women rooted in the Arya Samaj Tradition; a tradition that was founded in April 1875 by Swami Dayananda Saraswati, who wanted to revive the Vedic way of life and the need to create a just society for all despite color, cast or creed.
Having spent my childhood in Malaysia, formative years in India, teenage years in France and adult years both in the UK and USA, I believe that this has given me the foundation to relate to people from all walks of life.
Using a Vedantic approach into Self inquiry within the realm of yoga and life has been my practice for several years. This led me to establish my own training Art of Svādhyāya™ through Yin and Hatha Yoga.
I believe in education and bringing awareness within western yoga on how yoga is much more than asana - it is a way of life.
As of April 2021 I decided to take a much needed sabbatical from teaching yoga due to personal reasons and to pursue and deepen my own studies and sadhana. further. In the meantime you can practice to my numerous yoga videos by clicking the button below.
A recent article of mine Yoga Is Not Political was published by Yoga Journal. This took a year to write and to be published. You can read the full article by clicking the button below.
“Curving back within myself I create again and again.” Bhagavad Gita
Savira is a E-RYT 200 Yoga Alliance and YACEP accredited Yoga teacher, with over 3200 hours of teaching. Out of her passion for Yin Yoga, formed whilst a senior teacher with Yogalife, she decided to establish her own Yin Yoga Training Course in India in 2013, bringing Yin Yoga into the spotlight. Her “Art of Yin Yoga™” Training Course established in two major cities in India, has evolved and grown.
Specializing in the Art of Svādhyāya™ through Yin and Hatha Yoga, Savira’s holistic style of teaching encompasses the understanding of the physical, mental and spiritual journey of this Yoga. She believes that yoga is a self-inquiry practice both on and off the yoga mat.
Her classes are slow and steady, encouraging deep relaxation and the understanding of safe alignment in a playful environment that encourages interaction and self-exploration.
Savira’s sessions are created from her own experiences and journey in life where she combines the key principles of compassion, non-judgment, self-reflection, and humor and with perspective.
She weaves the teachings from the Bhagvad Gita, grounding her & honoring her heritage by staying true to her culture and traditions.
She passionately believes that Yoga is a spiritual and a lifelong practice that is accessible to all. Having worked with students dealing with a wide-variety of physical limitations, Savira mindfully guides her students to understand the basic fundamentals of their body movement; empowering them with tools to create respect and deepen their practice further.
When she is not inspiring students around the world through her wit, charm, and oceanic depth of wisdom, she can be found in a studio where she regularly empowers students by challenging them both in their practice and critical thinking.
