About me

 

Amongst the many roles that I play in my life, my role as a Yogi is the one that defines me best. Yoga has been my reverence, passion, and truth from the moment it found me thirty years ago. Yoga in its entirety is the only discipline that allows us to heal fully from inside out. We are all filled with vital energy - capable of magnificence, capable of balance, with the potential to scale the ordinary and find the divine that resides within each of us.

With this belief, I help people on their journey to better physical, emotional, and spiritual health. With a combined approach that includes authentic Yoga, breathing methods, meditation, Cupping therapy, Ayurvedic practices, and nutritional guidance, I support and nudge people back on the path to better health. The partnered approach is very successful because it provides the client with a support system. It is an honor and a privilege to be entrusted with another person’s health, and my promise is always to be present and true to their needs. 

 

"My daughter, a highly competitive golfer and athlete, has been working with Priya Singh for the past few months. In this time span, we have seen the sense of calm and discipline that Priya has helped her develop; she is performing much better under pressure. Priya very patiently advised her on the concept of healthy eating, and created a personalized yoga and breathing practice routine. I would highly recommend Priya's Yoga care and her workshops."  P.B.

Born and bought up in India, Priya has been entrenched in the practice, study, and teaching of classical Hatha and Kriya yoga for the past 30 years. Her passion and interest in Yoga encompasses the allied study of Ayurveda, Yoga therapy, Cupping, Applied anatomy and Homeopathy. Priya is also a trained Integrative Health Coach from Duke University, NC, where she had the privilege of teaching yoga at some seminars. In addition, she has been teaching 'Yoga Fundamentals and Subtle Anatomy of the Spine' at Yoga Teacher training programs in the Bay Area. Priya owes her love for yoga and healing to the blessings of all her teachers, mentors and Guru.  

 

With an interesting blend of Eastern roots and Western sensibilities, Priya is uniquely qualified to engage her students in a style which empowers them to take steps towards achieving personal goals. She practices a synergetic approach to healing, taking into consideration the complete history, current health and long-term health targets of her clients.

 

The individual sessions begin with an assessment, and are personalized to the client’s preference; and can include a combination of Health Coaching, Asana, Pranayama, meditation, lifestyle conversation and nutritional guidance. The group classes are taught in an easy, non–competitive environment, keeping individual needs and constitutions in mind.
