Lotus Yoga Center
Priti was born in Mumbai India and migrated to Brisbane Australia in 1975. Over the years her genuine human compassion and medical background in Occupational therapy has seen her undertake a number of roles in helping children with various disabilities. During a Disabled Youth Empowerment Camp she sustained a severe back injury, which hospitalized her for six weeks, and continued to suffer from back pain. She tried various modalities to heal this including different styles of yoga with out any success.
Priti heard through a friend of a Yoga teacher who had been to USA and was teaching totally different style of yoga (Svaroopa® Yoga) which concentrated on releasing spinal tension and was assured that it would help with her back pain. She started classes in 1998 and within 4 weeks her chronic back pain eased. She attended classes twice a week from then on.
In 2000 her teacher invited the Founder of Svaroopa® Yoga to Brisbane, Australia, to teach the Foundations and Anatomy courses. Priti took time off work and attended both the courses. Her colleges were impressed by the change in her that they formed a group and started coming to Priti for a class. Her love of teaching thus began!!
Priti took further training by traveling to USA to become a fully qualified Svaroopa® Yoga teacher and Embodyment Therapist. She gave up her work as an Occupational therapist in 2004 and works full time as a yoga teacher.
She began hosting teachers from USA to train other teachers and holds workshops at Lotus Yoga Centre. She still continues to travel to take further trainings in USA or takes part when the teachers come to Brisbane.
Priti has taken part in telephone discussions on philosophy, advanced teacher training in treating pain and various other courses so she can help her students. Through Svaroopa® yoga she continues to enlighten others with a steady hand, knowing smile and reassuring voice about the practice today.
The Lotus Yoga Centre is situated in leafy-green Kenmore Hills making for a beautiful and tranquil setting for the practice of yoga and meditation. The centre is air-conditioned.

Svaroopa Yoga Classes
At Lotus Yoga Centre I teach Svaroopa® Yoga. It is an easy style, enjoyable and suitable for most ages and levels of fitness. You do not have to be flexible to do yoga, as this style opens the body gently and deeply in a nurturing supportive way. This style of yoga helps relieve stress and pain in the body, improving the health of mind and body. Ending pain is easy with the spinal decompression we call Core Opening – end your back pain and dissolve neck and shoulder tensions in your first class.
Embodyment Yoga Therapy
Embodyment® is a one-on-one healing therapy based on the principles of yoga using touch. It works in a powerful and replenishing way, addressing your body’s needs, enhancing your yoga practice and assisting you with any physical or emotional condition, developing a deep sense of well-being and awareness.
The Embodyment® yoga therapist brings awareness to key areas of your spine, those areas which are the tightest. It is a gentle yet powerful way of releasing tensions in those areas to facilitate deep changes in the body and mind. So it works in the same way as your Svaroopa® yoga class, however the effects of one Embodyment® session is equivalent to the results from 5 to 6 yoga classes.
