... am a Yoga Teacher, ... have/direct a Yoga Center/studio
I am an expert in the following areas:
Classical Indian Dance Bharata Natyam ( PG diploma from the academy of Fine Arts Kalakshetra / INDIA ) , Yoga and Meditation teacher
My Yoga tradition/style/center, Yoga practice, Yoga Master/s, Teacher/s
born into the Surat Shabd Yoga and initiated by Kirpal Singh Ji at the age of 5 and 14 years, with 14 years having gone with my mother to his ashram in Delhi
More about me:
Lalitha Devi was born in Africa into a spiritual orientated family her
father gave her the name Lalitha and her mother was her first
yogateacher who taught her Sirshaasanam at the age of 8. When she
was five, she was initiated into the Surat Shabd Yoga and started to
meditate sitting next to her mother. With 14 she came the first time
to India in the ashram of her spiritual teacher Sant Kirpal Singh Ji
and had the opportunity to sit in front of him asking him the question
of how to love God the most.
With 19 years she went to South India (Madras) to study the sacred
classical Indian Dance Bharata Natyam, Sanskrit, music and Yoga in
Kalakshetra where she met Rukmini Deviji who made an extreme
impression on her as a serious minded student, and her way of realizing
the essence of the spiritual impact of the Indian Dance. After
7 years of a very strict monastry life she left Kalakshetra with the PG
Diploma. Back in the West she started to perform and to teach.
Her desire to build bridges between East and West and to express
spirituality through the medium of dance was her main ambition.
Slowly she left the traditional field and started her own Indian Dance
Creations to north Indian, western classical music and spiritual poetry.
By chance she met Svami Omkaranandaji who gave her the first
inspiration to recite his poetry and spiritual sayings on CD and to
put it into expression and dance movements, which he wanted her to
perform in the ashram. She discovered while performing and doing
sessions in psychotherapeutical clinics that the Indian Dance is much
more than a performing art but a form of dancetherapy. Finally she
made the experience in her own life ,how dance, yoga and meditation
helped her not only through phases of difficulties (divorce etc)
but also through a breast cancer operation. The latest biggest project
of "Siddhartha", where the spiritual essence of H. Hesse`s novel is
expressed through the Indian Dance, is in her eyes the final project
which in its depth reflects her own life and attitude which is, if one
wants to put it into a few sentences: Life as a play in which we all play
our different roles and the life in the presence and "here and now"
being the way to meditation and finally to inner peace.
