Hi, I’m Sukriti (they/them/theirs). I’m a body-positive Indian-American yoga teacher, whose connection to the practice began as a child. Raised Hindu, I learned philosophy and meditation from my family. As an adult in brain-heavy Boston, I found myself stressed, anxious and uncomfortably directionless, until in late 2010 when I wandered into an asana class and learned what a powerful form of medicine it can be. I’ve been practicing, learning and teaching whoever wants to listen, ever since.
In 2013 I studied with Cat Kabira in her 200hr Yoga and Energetics Level I teacher training, learning that a deep sense of empowerment arises from core connection and tuning into one’s energetic states. I also completed Barbara Benagh’s 500hr In-Depth Studies and The Art of Teaching program in 2015, and with the added influence of Sarah Powers’ teachings continue to study the subtle aspects of an unhurried practice.
I weave together what I’ve learned of the gross body, energetics, breath, movement and meditation, in order to give students new access to increased wellness and also a deeper sense of self-knowledge. My ultimate goal is for students to cultivate ease, strength, and trust starting with a more attuned relationship with their own bodies.
