Nritya Shakti Studio has dedicated Yoga teachers for the students as well and they guide the students very well.
Shakti Mohan said,
“I like to start my day with meditation followed by yoga and then exercise. Breathing is crucial in dancing and so, it is an important part of my exercise. I feel proud that Yoga has been originated in ancient India, and the rest of the world from all walks of life are practicing yoga. I make a point to incorporate Yoga into my fitness regime which gives me discipline in my lifestyle. My Parents, my sisters and me, we all do yoga together and it is kind of a Family activity and fun. It helps me in my dance as yoga is the alignment of soul, body, and mind. It gives you peace and calm .”

“Surya Namaskar, Chakrasana, and savasana are my favorites and these postures help me in my dance also”.
