KALI Ahuja -  YOGA + Philosophy

_I8A7263.jpg

Kali started her yoga journey five years ago here in Fort Collins.  Yoga offered a sense of calm, centering, and acceptance that she was searching for.  Through her exploration of different styles she found her way to vinyasa.  She had been taken away by the fluidity of vinyasa and sustained by the more subtle practices of pranayama, meditation, and mantra.  The experience of being lost in her own moving meditation and a desire to deepen her practices pushed her to pursue teacher training, she received her certification in spring 2012.

Kali teaches a creative, highly energetic vinyasa class which philosophy, focused alignment, and various meditation practices are threaded through.  She is grateful to all the yoga teachers and students who continue to challenge and inspire her.  Yoga has enriched her life in ways she never imagined and hopes to share her experiences with her students encouraging them to dive deeper into their own practice and create the space for change.

Kali is also available for private and semi-private instruction.  Request your appointment here today!
