Harjean went to her first yoga class when she was 18 years old. Since then she was hooked on yoga. She tried different types of yoga but her practice was very sporadic. It wasn’t until she moved to New York City in 2010 and found Ashtanga yoga that she was truly converted. Ashtanga yoga truly changed her life and transformed her mind and body. She fell in love with the grounding practice and teachings of Ashtanga and became dedicated to a 6 day practice. Even though her yoga practice was challenging (and at times painful!) Harjean felt that she had to continue with the practice and make it a part of her life.
She has seen and experienced the true healing of yoga and what a deep impact it can make in a person’s life. Being a qualified psychotherapist, Harjean has used yoga therapy to help clients suffering from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, autoimmune diseases and stress. Harjean believes that through healing the body we heal our mind. Harjean is grateful for all the teachers that have led her on this path. She dedicates her daily practice to her teachers, Danny Paradise, John Scott, Manju Jois and the late Sri Pattabhi Jois.
