Classical Yoga

Yoga is a discipline to improve quality of life, a philosophy to attain peace. If you want to experience health, if you want to experience peace and evolve, make Yoga a part of your lifestyle.
- Paramhansa Satyananda Saraswati

Classes are a combination of Asanas (physical postures) to balance the body and mind, Pranayama (breathing practices) to work on the energy body, Meditation to calm and focus the mind, and other Yogic practices. Everything taught is true to the Satyananda Yoga tradition of Bihar School of Yoga, India and is suitable for all ages. While a flexible body is not a requirement, willingness to learn, genuine curiosity and persistence will go a long way.

One-on-one, Family, or Private Group

My years of studying and teaching the ancient practices in their authentic, traditional form have helped me deeply understand the human system and teach based on individual needs. My students come from all walks of life and age groups. Especially if you have a specific health condition or are looking to deepen your yoga practice, it is recommended that you consider one-on-one classes.

Postnatal

Child birth is a significant event in many ways, especially for the mother. Yoga post-delivery assists her body and mind to heal, strengthen and regain hormonal balance. It is also effective in dealing with postpartum depression and other challenges that may occur. I provide a personalized program in a private setup online.

Yoga for Seniors

A program designed specifically for Senior well-being. I have been teaching seniors including those with Arthritis and have had positive results in pain reduction, increased mobility and maintaining health.

Corporate

Workshops are offered to assist reduction of stress, and increase focus and performance, through Mind - Body - Hand alignment with Classical Yogic Practices.

Authentic Yang family Tai Chi

Tai Chi meaning the 'Ultimate Fist' is a balance between the Yin and the Yang, and is practised in slow, relaxed flowing natural movements. Its calming, structured movements counteracts the stress of everyday life and assists recovery from wear and tear, as a therapeutic modality. Tai Chi is also fondly called as 'Meditation in Motion'. There are about 5 major styles of Tai Chi of which the Yang style is most widely practiced around the world. I have been learning and teaching Authentic Yang Family Tai Chi under the guidance of Sifu George Thomas. Sifu George is sixth generation master and disciple of Grand Master Fu Sheng Yuan (fifth generation Yong Nian Yang Family). I continue to share this art in its traditional form as handed down.

With COVID19 I am working on bringing Tai Chi classes online and will announce once ready. If you are interested submit your enquiry to get an alert.

Corporate Group Yoga Class

Ajinkya has taught a virtual Yoga series to staff at my organization over the past few months. He has developed a loyal following of participants who are very pleased to start the day with their bodies stretched, feeling healthy and their minds calm and at ease. Starting with the basics that everyone could follow, Ajinkya then developed our understanding of Yoga, breathing and mindfulness with more challenging poses, seeking our feedback and adapting his approach along the way. We are so grateful to have had his guidance on this journey. I would highly recommend Ajinkya’s Yoga instructions to other employers who are seeking this type of benefit for the wellbeing of their employees.

Prenatal Yoga Class

I had attended 1:1 prenatal yoga classes with AJ and I found them beneficial throughout my pregnancy, labor and post-partum journey. His approach was very customized to my individual body type and needs. The classes used to be very holistic in nature, with mantra, warm up, asanas, pranayama and meditation. He always took the time to explain the concept behind any new that he would teach in a class. The classes always had a calming effect on me. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to learn and practice yoga to improve overall wellbeing or to address some specific health needs.

One-on-One Yoga Class

I have enjoyed your classes immensely. I have tried several classes whilst being in USA and in India and found yours so friendly, caring and great instructions. I was searching for a class that captures the philosophy and essence of movements, that calms my mind, and keeps my body healthy and strong. I have found these with your yoga classes. Having practiced Yoga one-on-one with you for few months now I must say you are an excellent instructor who is very thorough with the approach and explanation of the poses and I really enjoy them and the humor as well. Thank you once again!

Sandeep Jain - SAP Functional Consultant (IT Pro), USA

Private Group Yoga Class

Doing yoga with the guidance of Ajinkya was one of my best yoga teacher experience in almost 20 years. He is not only knowledgeable on the subject but also patient, kind and punctual. We miss him & wish him good luck.

Ajay - Business Owner & Entrepreneur, India

One-on-One Yoga Class

I came to Ajinkya Pinto’s yoga class with a specific purpose: to give my troublesome knee some relief. Now, many months on, doing the yoga asanas not only brings immense relief to the knee, it limbers up my whole body. Thank you, Ajinkya

Sheila Kumar - Manuscript Editor, Author, Journalist, India

Tai Chi Class

It takes a spiritual person to move the spirit and AJ has just the ability to teach movement with a stillness that only a calm mind can cultivate. It was a pleasure learning Taichi from him and, I must say, we tried his patience quite a bit. But even our worst antics were received with a gentle smile and a continuing encouragement to achieve discipline along with a mind-body connection through daily practice. I hope to learn the sword and saber form from him in the future

Saloni Duggal - Director, Florina Finishing School, India

Tai Chi Class

A brilliant and humble Taichi exponent.
He would always go the extra mile to teach you to get the right move
