Aarti is an eternal student, a preacher of traditional yoga who holds a Master’s Degree in ‘Yog-Shastra’. She is also a QCI certified Level II Yoga Teacher under Government of India-AYUSH Ministry. Aarti’s first acquaintance with Yoga came at quite a young age with Yoga Vidya Gurukul, Nashik (Swami Satyananda lineage-Bihar School of Yoga) where she enrolled for Pranayama course, after which she had a longing to deepen her knowledge, especially in ancient, scriptural & traditional practices of Yoga.
So further, she took up the basic course in the same mentioned school (YVG, Nashik) & finished all the levels up to Yoga Pandit, now with more than 8 years of wide variety of teaching experience, conducting seminars & workshops for all age groups. Aarti believes that whether one is in the role of teaching or practicing, Yoga is about continuous learning and growing and with this faith she has traveled to various ashrams like Sivananda Ashram for advanced trainings, Mysore for Ashtanga Vinyasa, and specialized certification in pre-postnatal yoga from Yog Vidya Gurukul.
In her teaching experience, she came across various inspirational stories of healing through yoga and thus she took a dedicated training in Yoga Therapy to bring focus into new and wider perspective of health and wellness. Back at Govardhan Ecovillage, she continues her Yoga teachings, practices, personal sadhana & study of Bhagavad Gita in the Vaishnava Tradition. Aarti’s motto is to find true happiness by taking yoga practice off the mat as well!
