gained her Teaching Diploma through the British Wheel of Yoga, under
the tutelage of Fay Beddowes. Having been brought up in a Hindu
Bengali Brahmin family, she is able to bring to her teaching a depth
and richness of Yoga experience which only such a cultural and philosophical
heritage can provide. Lina was an engineer for almost 10 years,
but her increasing involvement in integrating her learning with
a Western humanistic perspective has meant that she is now a full
time yoga teacher. Her practical grounding in the western world,
combined with her understanding of an Eastern belief system that
has underpinned a Yogic approach to everyday living for millennia,
has created an holistic style of yoga which is particularly responsive
to the physical and spiritual challenges of modern western life.
At the root of her teaching is a fundemental respect for and acceptance
of each of her students - for who they are and whatever stage they
have reached. Through her teaching, her aim is to facilitate students'
self-exploration and enable their insightfulness to enhance their
daily lives. Her Yoga is truly a living Yoga, and Lina is an emphatic
example of this.
