Anita's journey with yoga began in 2003, after undergoing surgery. Doctors involved in the surgery advised her to maintain fitness in order to aid post-surgery recovery and recommended practising yoga. Like most people, Anita ignored this advice as she had always thought of 'yoga' as "absolutely boring!".
But she eventually gave in and decided to give it a go anyway. She immediately realized its not as easy as it looks. Yoga, it turns out, requires a lot of focus and effort, not to mention regular and agonising practise. But the effort was worth it and soon Anita started noticing major improvements in not just her fitness but also mental abilities. What made her experience with yoga even more enriching was she her experienced and lovely teacher. Her teacher served as an ideal mentor who helped Anita master the basics and practise regularly and this helped her become increasingly passionate about yoga.
The depths of her eventual passion for yoga even surprised Anita herself and after 2 years of practising with a keen interest she began to admire and idolise her teacher and decided to take up yoga as a full time career. Anita believes that her mentor inspired her to take up yoga not as a part of her life but as a lifestyle in itself. She is very grateful for the encouragement she was given by her mentor when she decided to seek formal training in traditional yoga.
Anita went on to complete the renowned 'Teachers Training Course' (TTC.) from the Santacruz Yoga Institute. Acquired a certificate in 'Power Yoga' from Leena Mogre's Academy. And also completed numerous crash courses from Shammeen Akhtar as well as other yoga professionals in the field.
After years of training Anita finally decided to start up her own Yoga Training Class and began accepting students in November, 2008. Today 'Antara Yoga' provides training in traditional as well as contemporary yoga and accepts students of all ages and demographics from from all parts of the city.
