Awaken your spiritual power through a Bollywood Vinyasa practice, which combines vinyasa flow yoga with elements of Bollywood and Bhangra Dance. Bollywood vinyasa is inspired by the exuberant, bold and expressive moves seen in Indian films. This class infuses various vedic practices such as chanting mantras combined with classical and folk Indian dances, and yoga. Connect your inner self with your outer body while joy and radiance flow through you in a creatively linked series of yoga asanas and dances that ultimately culminate in bliss.

Hemalayaa teaches a unique combination of yoga and Indian dance in Los Angeles and travels the globe transforming lives through these practices. As a yogini, dancer and fitness educator, Hemalayaa has a natural gift for bringing out the joy and the dancer in everyone. The daughter of Indian parents, Hema's upbringing taught her that dance was important to health and well-being, and her yoga training began at home at an early age. Her first teacher was her father. She went on to study yoga, philosophy, and meditation. A life devoted to yoga and dance animates Hemalayaa's playful spirit. Laughter, her own and that of her students, is the trademark sound of her classes. Hema loves turning her students on to the vibrant styles of Indian dance, which is revolutionizing conscious movement. She is the creator and author of numerous health and fitness DVDs and has been featured in publications such as Yoga Journal, Body & Soul, Fit Yoga, The New York Times and LA Yoga Magazine among others. When she's not shimmying with Ellen Degeneres on her talk show, strutting her stuff with the ladies of the Today show or leading workshops and retreats around the world, Hemalayaa is most likely to be found in her kitchen whipping up some healthy, organic food, riding her bike around Los Angeles, spending time with friends and just generally enjoying life.
I am a professional competitive cyclist and a two-time Master's National Champion for road racing. I continue to train as an elite athlete and provide nutritional periodization plans to compliment training periodization plans. My professional passion is for helping people gain essential knowledge for promoting optimal health outcomes throughout the lifespan. Additionally, my desire is to help people put this knowledge into practice through behavior change strategies that take an ecological approach and address the cultural econiche, as well as the biological econiche. The end result of such endeavors should result in a proactive pursuit of compressed morbidity where life and wellness is fully realized and functional for most of the human life span, thus compressing the years of degenerative disease to the final stages of the life span. My personal passions include enjoying physical movement of many forms, the beauty of nature, and good foods.
