My name is Arati Claudia Lane and I have been teaching Yoga since 1989.

Always athletic, I was intrigued by the stronger yoga “workout” traditions like Ashtanga, Jivamukti and Vinyassa styles. Also a seeker by nature, I explored the other branches yoga has to offer such as devotional yoga, meditation, positive thinking, relaxation and the profound philosophy.
I studied at the Sivananda Ashrams, a worldwide organisation, and took 2 years in India to travel, explore and study spirituality, yoga and, most of all, life.
Originally from Europe, I now reside in San Diego, where I gave birth to my son. During pregnancy, I deepened my understanding of yoga poses, asanas, breathing, pranayama and enjoyed the gifts of yoga for recovery parenting, childcare and for self care.
A few years ago, I was in a car crash and my back was hurt — it took away my strong practice. I had to heal — and that is always a good thing once we look back. I found that I could study the theraputic side of yoga!
I learned about the ‘yoga wall’ and how it induces traction to create space in the spine and release pain. I had physical yoga therapy for over a year and than a profound shift happened — it all made sense!
EVERY NEED HAS A SPECIAL TYPE OF YOGA! EVERY MOMENT OF LIFE!
My son has allergies and asthma, so I researched the different yoga methods that could help him. I found AYURVEDA — sister science of yoga — the science of life. I studied to become a yoga and ayurveda wellness adviser through the Sivananda Ashram and with diet, lifestyle changes and a positive approach my son is free of asthma and hardly ever sick!
Yoga and ayurveda continue to enrich my life and the life of those around me! I would love to help bring these natural gifts to your life, as well.
Namaste — the light in me sees the light in you.
