She is passionate about making meditation accessible using the power of the body and breath movement as it is experienced in breath-based asana practice. She loves to connect to the Sacredness of Life in the ordinary. Her background is in Spiritual Heart Meditation, which combines heart-centering, breath awareness, and Self-inquiry to connect to the stillness & bliss of life profoundly.
She has practiced and taught meditation for the past 15 years in various formats and countries, from short silent sittings, which typically end her Yoga classes, to meditation classes & retreats of various lengths. Her passion belongs to the connectedness & sacredness that arises from Stillness.
Devdas began his journey in meditation naturally in his young years, just sitting and contemplating in his favorite nature spots. Eventually, he learned some proper techniques and helped run a series of meditation centers all over India for 12 years.
Meditation should be as natural to human beings as the breath and should be taught so that everyone feels the profound and immediate benefit of regular practice. Pranayama as a doorway into stillness and mantra meditation are Devdas’ special passions. By now, Devdas has shared meditation experiences and retreats in North America, South America, Europe, and all over Asia.
