Our name “AOK” is an abbreviation of “Awakening Of Kalindi”
Kalindi is a beautiful, feminine name as well as the name of a renowned, flowing river in India. The Sanskrit meaning of Kalindi is “The Sun”. Awakening of Kalindi (The Sun) gives rise to the essence of all that is connected, prosperous & energetic.
Through yoga we also worship “The Sun” particularly in the beginning of our practice through Sun Salutations, also referred to as Surya Namaskar. Saluting the Sun encourages grounding, flexibility, strength & focus – relaxing the mind & body.
Through our yoga practice, together we have transformed our lives, opened our hearts, shared our passions, experiences & blessings – all of which we attempt to exude during our classes bathing our students with as much light and guidance as possible.
Although we are teachers – we are ALWAYS the student & always learning.
Om Suryaya Namah,
