Integrative Yoga, Meditation and Yoga Nidra
Shilpa Ghatalia has been a life long student of Yoga. In 1997 she became a certified yoga teacher in the Himalayan tradition at Swami Rama’s Institute of Yogic Sciences Honesdale, USA. In 1999 under the tutelage of Swami Veda Bharati she studied the subtleties of Yoga to include Raja Yoga Meditation & Yoga Nidra.
In 2005 she trained under the Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh in Mindfulness Meditation. In 2006 she met her spiritual master Ramesh Balsekar and became a student of Non-dualism/Advaita. In 2007 she went to Mysore, India to study Pranayama and the fundamentals of Ayurveda under Dr Nagaraj. In 2008 she was introduced to the powerful Russian Breathing Technique, the Buteyko Method. Over the years she continued to study different styles of Hatha Yoga such as Iyengar, Anusara and Yin Yoga in her quest to find a system, which led to spontaneous meditation.
In 2008 she went on to study with master teachers *Paddy McGrath and *Diane Long who initiated her into revolutionary practise of *Vanda Scaravelli. This, to her was the ultimate practice that led to lightness, joy and freedom.
In early 2017, she studied Calligraphy Yoga and Qi Gong with the Shaolin *Master Yang Mian. She also did her 300 hours RYT with *Simon Borg Olivier of Yoga Synergy.

The richness of each of these traditions make it complete & unique system of mind-body-spirit health. Shilpa Ghatalia is the founding owner of Yogshakti-www.yogshakti.com.
