Body - Mind Approach With Ashwini 


Hello I am Ashwini Shannikodi

Welcome to Breathe For Transformation. This is a humble offering of gratitude to the teaching of yoga.

We offer body and movement-based yoga, pranayama (breathing practices), relaxation techniques, yoganidra, and therapeutic modalities. We believe in the transformative power of yoga to help heal and empower individuals on and off the mat. 

At Breathe for Transformation, accessibility and inclusivity are at the core of our mission. We intentionally use a lowercase "b" in our name to symbolize our interconnectedness and wholeness as a community.  As the Hatha Yoga Pradipika states, nothing is achieved from reading about it; you actually need to do 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 

I am a certified yoga Teacher and Accredited  Facilitator. 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

In sessions we focus on Hatha Yoga, including Asana, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, and Relaxation techniques. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced practitioner, my role as a teacher is to guide you toward your practice and help you reach your full potential. The intension is to offer an inclusive and nurturing space where personal growth naturally becomes part of daily life.Through cultivating self-awareness, mindfulness, and self-compassion on the mat, we empower ourselves to embody these qualities beyond our practice.

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!
