My name is Aadnyankita Mhatre from Mumbai,India. I’m a Freelance Yoga Instructor and Trainer
My Yoga Journey
Starting yoga at the early age of 4 was an amazing experience observing my elder sister’s practice and then practicing on my own inspired me a lot.
After few years,I found a yoga book in my house, with basic Asanas in it. I was too young to be able to read a book, so I asked my mother to read it for me, according to her instructions I started practicing. Few years later around 2010-11 my mother took me to a yoga class where group of senior citizens would come together for yoga practice, and interestingly I found some yoga charts on wall, I got to know about more new asanas to practice.
Later I began to practice Karate and yoga , during that time I found new people of similar age who loved to practice yoga, so I started practicing with them. After a year I was given an opportunity to teach both Yoga & Karate to kids of 6-18 years of age group.I was learning everyday to teach them, to know students abilities, strengthens and weakness.
This is the year when I finally got an access to internet. I found Kino MacGregor as an inspiration on YouTube, after which I started practicing with intermediate asanas and advance asanas and this proved to be the turning point of my life when I finally gained knowledge on practicing yoga, breathing techniques and alignments so I started my own page on instagram as aadnyayoga, which slowly started growing and people got inspired through it too. I personally thank Kino for her videos which inspired me to be a teacher and made me work more on my strengths and capabilities.
Finally I began freelancing as a yoga teacher, I had 2-3 students. It wasn’t affordable to rent a place or studio so I started giving sessions at home. I had to do other job because of not getting enough support from family. Luckily I had off on weekends so began to continue with my Sessions. One thing was always missing in it, which was “teacher training certificate”. I decided to be a full time teacher, that’s all I wanted for these years. During Covid -19 I lost my job, and was not able to a afford teacher training certificate.
Accidentally, one day I saw an advertisement on Instagram from OFCOURSE learning and started my training with them in July 2020 and finally got my certification as CTAA Accredited Yoga Teacher. I am planning to learn more by doing advance yoga trainings.
