Online Mahad Yoga Studio

Why Mahad? There are variety of concepts of formation of the universe, or the beginning. In Hindu philosophy Sankhya, that is most related to the Yoga school of Hinduism, the formation of the universe is described as 24 principles: Avyakta, Mahad, Ahankara, Mind, 5 sense faculties, 5 Motor faculties, 5 great elements and 5 Tanmatras. Mahad was one of those principles that addresses cosmic intelligence, in fact it is defined as pure innate intelligence with the capacity for reasoning and individual intellect. That will be our approach to each student, to develop and create an individualized program that will help develop self-awareness and encourage exercise and stress relief. Since Mahad Studio is on a perceptive path, we realize that there is no “one size fits all” exercise or solutions. Let’s get together and create a program that works for you. We would love to be a part of your healing journey.

MY STORY

I hope that my journey and experience will inspire you to be a fighter and develop a robust interest in your well-being, self-discovery and of course Yoga!

At the same time, I am grateful for the opportunity to give this knowledge back to the community, my students, and visitors! Thank you for joining me today and taking the time to read my story. I can assure you that no matter who you are, you will get something out of it. All my life, I was a very active person. I have been a figure skater since I was three years old and spent at least two hours a day at the gym for as long as I can remember.

I used to push myself and run and flex to the point of breaking, thinking all the while that it was what I was supposed to be doing to be healthy. I thought I was in good shape, so it was a big surprise when I got diagnosed with an auto-immune condition that attacks your thyroid first, makes your heart race, hands shake, and makes you lose or gain weight faster than you can imagine. At 5’1 I weighed 115 pounds at the time of my diagnosis, and about 160 pounds three months later (ouch!). Many doctors told me that I had no choice but a lifetime of taking medicine, radioactive iodine treatment or surgery, and still more medication. Yes, exactly, just that – no other choice.

I knew I needed something more than just changing my diet, I needed something that would heal my spirit and transform my body, something that would allow for physical exercise but also provide mental and emotional support. Little did I know that my Yoga practice would give me all of that and more. Not only am I able to do Asanas, but in the process, I have learned that everything is connected. YOGA is the state of mind that allows for that connection to bliss. As a result, I was able to heal, but I also realized that many people just like me are looking for something more than just a physical practice. Seven years ago now, I decided it was time to take a new path. I currently help others on their journey through the body and mind. In the process, I assist others tap into a 5,000-year-old practice to find healing and live their best life.

This is when Mahad Studio was born <3.
