Amit Sharma

I am Amit, born and raised in India, the motherland of Yoga and well-being. I am certified Yoga therapist and Naturopath. I have completed my M.Sc in Yogic science and have done Diploma in “Yoga and Naturopathy”. I started learning Yoga 14 years back and after taking a few classes it has been a part of my life and after every yoga class it’s an unexplainable feeling. My practice has helped me grow stronger, more flexible and fearless, both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires me to live each moment more mindfully. I always want to be a student of the practice and I am deeply grateful for the loving wisdom my teachers have shared with me.

In my classes, I love to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice. I seek to help others thrive in live by nurturing body, mind and soul with yoga, and my hope is that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished, and balanced.
