Ami Patel

An inspired student and teacher of Yoga and Ayurveda... living and breathing wellbeing.

I picked up my first yoga book at Age 10...my first steps in learning yogasana and pranayama.

Growing up in an Indian household, my yoga journey is enriched by influences from cultural and family traditions through devotion, worship, mythology and folklore.

In the family kitchen...spice blends and other everyday foods were often used as medicine...

planting the seed for my nutritional interest to grow in ayurveda. My mum prepared all food (and kitchen medicine!) with a huge dose of love and creativity. My mother is indeed my first healer and teacher.

The essence of both my practice and teaching are strongly rooted in the Sivananda yoga tradition together with Integral Yoga teachings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother (Mirra Alfassa). Over the years, I have explored and learned different approaches to yoga both in knowledge and in practice, gaining some depth into its transformative process and therapeutic application and learning how to apply this to my personal practice and also teach others to embody the power of flow and breath-body-mind connection.

On a quest to better my understanding of feminine identity, I began to explore paths that led me to learn a more intuitive and feminine approach to yoga supporting all stages and cycles of a woman's life. At this time, I also started to further explore the science and wisdom of Ayurveda. 

Through living and learning Ayurveda, I cultivate such precious awareness of my true self and life around me. My personal journey into self-enquiry and spiritual development continues in further exploration of the paths of tantra, meditation and relaxation, bhakti (devotion) and sound (Nada Yoga). 

Whilst I continue to grow on my own spiritual journey, it is an honour and privilege to share what I learn, gain and receive from yoga and ayurveda through teaching it to others.  

Om Tat Sat.
