Body - Mind Approach With Ashwini 

Ashwini profile image

Welcome to a transformative journey of holistic well-being with Ashwini Shannikodi. This is a humble expression of gratitude for the teachings of yoga. With the intention of fostering an inclusive and nurturing space, I offer yoga as a path where personal growth seamlessly integrates into daily life. Through cultivating self-awareness, mindfulness, and self-compassion on the mat, we empower ourselves to embody these qualities beyond our practice.

My approach blends the wisdom of traditional knowledge and practices with an openness to explore the synergies between Eastern and Western perspectives on the body and mind. I deeply believe in the profound connection between the physical, mental, and energetic layers of our being, understanding that true wellness arises from nurturing all aspects of ourselves. In my classes, you'll find a unique blend of ancient teachings and modern insights, creating a harmonious space for personal growth and self-discovery.

Join me on the mat as we embark on a journey of exploration through yoga. Whether you're new to yoga or an experienced practitioner, my sessions are crafted to cater to all levels, fostering flexibility, strength, and mental clarity. Together, let's uncover the harmony of Body and Mind, unlocking the potential for a healthier, more fulfilling life

Hatha Yoga Pradipika states, nothing is achieved from reading about it; you actually need to practice to achieve it. Now is the opportunity to commit to the practice and join our community for support and in your pursuit of healing, growth, and self-discovery through the transformative power of yoga.

My Approach

My journey with Hatha Yoga spans over 17 years, during which I've been profoundly touched by the positive influence of yoga, both on and of the mat. Life has presented with unique challenges to me, including periods of trauma, grief, and the significant transition from India to the UK. Through my own experiences, I have discovered the profound power of yoga in navigating life's challenges. You can read my story here

Testimonials 

Hear from people who have benefited from my services

"Ashwini at Breathe for Transformation offered our Friends in Need group a wonderful session called 'Connecting the Body with Breath'.  Friends in Need is a peer support group for those experiencing mental health issues.. Ashwini was fantastic. She offered us a 1 hour and half interactive and practical session of how we can connect our bodies with breath.. Ashwini kept in mind the different levels of mobility in the group and catered the session to this, so members were able to sit, stand and stretch in ways that felt comfortable with them. Thank you Ashwini - we look forward to working with you again in the future. Highly recommend!
