Our Motto

Abhyasa - Practice with Perseverance ! 

​​

Shiva Samhita says “Through practice comes perfection; through practice one will attain liberation".

In the Yoga Sutras (1:13), Patanjali defines Abhyasa as, “Abhyasa is the effort toward gaining stability in that state of cessation of the fluctuations of the mind". 

In Sutra 1:14, he further elaborates, "But this practice is firmly grounded only after it has been cultivated properly and for a long time uninterruptedly".

In his teachings, Ramana Maharshi also stressed that, “No one succeeds without effort. Those who succeed owe their success to perseverance.”

Practice, Perseverance, Passion and Patience are 4 P's to success.

Practice makes you perfect in your skills, Perseverance offers you the required momentum for keeping you in the race irrespective of the prospective outcome, Passion keeps you glued to the target and above all Patience helps you wait till the zenith of all the former qualities making you most successful.

Why Aura?

All things have energy associated with them. Some people make us nervous, while others relax us; the energy or vibes that people emanate have that effect on others. It is believed that aura is the energy that a person emits. We want to work with people to cleanse and purify this all-important aura that each one of us has. Practice of yoga will give us a healthy body, a calm and spiritual mind purifying our aura in the process.

Our Founder

Vaheeda Tariq, first practiced yoga for the physical benefits hoping to lose weight and become more fit.  As her body became stronger and healthier, she soon discovered that her yoga mat was a place to find a sense of contentment, self-awareness, and mind-body connection.
 
When Vaheeda decided to enroll for Hatha Yoga teacher training, she only hoped to deepen her own practice, however, the more she learned and, the more her intention turned to teach and sharing the practice she loves with others. As a teacher, Vaheeda realizes that yoga is not a "one size fits all'' practice and that every person is on a different path, so she pursued her study of yoga and did her Masters in Yoga from S-VYASA, learning more about how yoga can be applied to help and heal people with lifestyle diseases and common ailments. Curious about different styles she further did her teachers training course in Ashtanga Vinyasa, Vaheeda further did her training in Rehab Pilates from APPI so that she can use the best of both Yoga and Pilates in her way of teaching. All the experiences she had while studying different forms helped her put together a style of her own. Vaheeda has been practicing yoga for the last 11 years and teaching group classes for 8 years since her 1st yoga teacher training course in 2013 .She has been taking online classes  for the  last 1.5 year since pandemic started .She has been working in association with Consult Yoga. She has also  been teaching children of SSVM Institutions from age of 6 to 16 and working as faculty of the school.
 
She tries to offer her students, be it adults or children, the opportunity to take that path in their own way at their own pace, to modify when needed and to honor how they feel at all times. Vaheeda believes in the motto Abhyasa - Practice with perseverance. The very heart of yoga is Abhyasa -  steady effort in the direction of your goal. Practice not just to get it right, Practice so that you will never get it wrong. Vaheeda finds immense joy, satisfaction, and inspiration in seeing students discover themselves in their personal yoga journey and hopes to nurture and encourage them along their path.
