About Pooja Mamadapalli
Pooja is a 500-hour yoga educator and private teacher with a Master's in Psychology from Bangalore, India.
"My mission is to re-integrate yoga into yoga, in the west! My approach to Yoga is one of care, affection, and encouragement towards the body and soul that practice it. I believe that practice is the art of reaching for new possibilities, rather than reaching for perfection. Hence, I believe that a beginner and an expert can benefit equally from Yogasana, as long as their practice remains faithful. I completed my 200 hour and 300 hour teachers training in Hatha Yoga with A1000Yoga Academy in Bangalore, India. I also have completed my pre and postnatal yoga from the same academy. My expertise is in asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, cleansing practices, yoga nidra (sleep yoga), yoga philosophy and basics of Ayurveda. In my sessions, I try to identify the needs and current abilities of each individual and provide tailored instructions. I strive to share my knowledge of Yoga as unconditionally and openly as my masters before me."
