Behind Little world of Yoga
Achuthan (Achu) started practising yoga as a teenager. For him yoga is about transformation.
His spiritual journey started at his childhood and as a teenager he started to practise asanas. Starting with Shivananda Hatha yoga style, he later transitioned into more dynamic Ashtanga Vinyasa and also Restorvative yoga styles.
His father was a well known vedic astrologer. Achu used to be a Hindu priest. Coming from a spiritual family, he was fascinated by the idea of becoming a hindu priest & servicing and helping others. After his father passed away he went to the Tantra Vidyapedoom ( Tantric school ) to study rituals and worships. The complete spiritual life in vidyapeedom made his path clear. He started to find answers for his questions. There he realized his path, his Swadharma.
Yoga taught him not to be hard on himself, to get better understanding about the life situations, and that in order to find answers; the journey needs to be an inward journey. He believes, through yoga we learn that we always have a choice as to how we react to things that happens in our life.
Darshini Prajapati practices yoga and is dedicated to give yoga as a therapy to people. She has been inclined towards and involved in spirituality since childhood. She has done Master's(M.A.) in Yogic Sciences and Naturopathy from Orissa and 200hr TTC in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga from Mysore. She teaches Hatha, Vinayasa, Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga styles, Therapeutic yoga and various meditation techniques. As a certified Acupressure/ Reflexology practitioner, she uses that knowledge in her classes too.
Darshini envisions to spread a basic insight on how Yoga can enhance practical lifestyle of people, and also rise personally in different levels in philosophy of the same.
We believe the yoga practice is different for each person, so the teaching method should be also different. Our asana classes are inspired by different teachers and different styles.
Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The Sanskrit word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga
Ashtanga yoga, sometimes referred to as Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, is a style of yoga that was developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and T. Krishnamacharya in the 20th century. They claimed it originated from a system of Hatha yoga described in the ancient text, the "Yoga Korunta." Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic, flowing style that connects the movement of the body with the breath. The method stresses the importance of daily practice of a set series of movements.
Like hatha, vinyasa yoga is a general term that describes many different styles of yoga. It essentially means movement synchronized with breath and is a vigorous style based on a rapid flow through sun salutations. You may also see a vinyasa class referred to as a flow class, which refers to the continuous flow from one yoga posture to the next.
Meditation isn’t about becoming a different person, a new person, or even a better person. It’s about training in awareness and getting a healthy sense of perspective. You’re not trying to turn off your thoughts or feelings. You’re learning to observe them without judgment. And eventually, you may start to better understand them as well.
I have been practising Yoga with Darshini and Achutan for 9 month. I have made significant progress in my practice. They are very knowledgeable and truly devoted. They are beautiful souls. If you like to start your yoga journey, they are the ones to join. Love and Lights.
Little world of yoga has truly transformed my life in the best way imaginable. Never would I have thought a few months ago that I would be such a huge yoga fanatic. I am so happy with how things have come to be.It is a gift and a great privilege to be able to experience the practice. You've enhanced my way of life in numerous ways that I need to thank you for. Your guidance helped me see what I wanted more clearly, thank you so much. My vision of myself has changed and I am so happy with how things have come to be. I feel more alive and more me than ever before. Your guidance helped me see what I wanted more clearly, thank you so much.
I will never forget Achuthan. He has this calm, serene, and very reserve presence but when he starts the class, he has an inviting way to capture his audience/students. He clearly explains the yoga philosophy and when he does the asana class like Hatha and vinyasa, each instruction is easy to perceive. His way of teaching caters not only to the advance practitioners but also to the beginners. His adjustments and assistance were done professionally too. Because of Achuthan, he made me feel more connected with myself and the asanas. Thank you again, Achuthan! The universe orchestrated everything so that you will become one of our teachers. Namaste!
Achutan is an inspiring yoga teacher with the ability to share the light and knowledge of the practice. His classes have a great balance between pranayama; asanas and meditation. His knowledge of the yoga philosophy is outstanding. Through his teaching I was able to learn so much, not only about the practice but also about myself. Achutan is supporting and guiding you on your journey towards yourself. He creates a safe environment for his students to feel comfortable and free. I can recommend him from all my heart. I am very grateful that I was able to learn from him.
The first thing I noticed about Achuthan is his voice. He has this powerful voice, he knows the exact tones to use to guide you through the class, how to keep a rhythm, when to talk, when to be silent. His voice is like a healing melody. You will remember everything he says because he shares Yoga with patience and passion. He always has this glimmer in his eyes, making him curious about the world, he’s never done learning. His warm presence makes you feel safe and comfortable. He is humble, sensitive and really cares for people.
Achutan is an awesome teacher and person. He is so passionate and always happy to share with us his knowledge. Our classes with him were always peaceful and with good vibes. I really enjoyed all the images and small stories he used to introduce us the spiritual aspect of yoga, I really felt like a child discovering a new world. He helped me a lot in Hatha Yoga to listen and respect my body, and to really feel what yoga changes inside me. Thanks for your patience, your smile and your peace.
