About My Guru
Mrs. Shashi Khosla or ‘Shashiji’, as she is fondly known by everyone…..
Mrs. Shashi Khosla is a living maestro of Yoga, a true teacher and healer. She started her journey of Yoga after her marriage to an ace photographer and writer Mr. Ramesh Khosla. She says that it was her father- in- law who gave her the motivation and guidance to opt for a course in Yoga. Though she was not very keen on it, she agreed to try it with due respect to her father-in-law’s words.
Her degree from YMCA college of Physical Education, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, helped her with the basics of anatomy and physiology of human body. She registered herself in a 6 months course of Yoga from Kaivalyadham, Mumbai, India; which was a pioneer institute of yoga in those times. After the demise of her father-in-law, she opened up a small institute of Yoga as a tribute to him on his birthday (7th August 1985), and then there was no looking back. To excel further, she did another 6 months course in ‘Yoga as a Therapy’ from Kaivalyadham, Mumbai, India; which taught her about the role of Yogic knowledge in treating various ailments. She also attended various workshops as a speaker to World Congress of Alternative Medicine and was awarded “Gem of Alternative Medicine” in 1998 by International Bureau of Alternative Medicine, West Bengal and a Doctor’s certificate in Alternative Medicine from Open International University of Alternative Medicine. She turned down many invitations to be a professor of Alternate Medicine, though she continued to do her own research in the field. She has been a great asset to the Alternate Medicine & Holistic healing world.
Her motto is “We must make our body work for us”.
Her driving force has always been the support and the encouragement she got from her family members.
According to her:
"Understanding of the subject is more important then finding standard answers"
Message to Practitioners / Instructors:
- Be open to learn and to live in the present.
Remember the blessing to forget: We as human beings forget the good and remember the bad although nature has given us the blessing to forget the bad and remember the good.
