On Saturday, April 6, 2013, internationally renowned yoga expert Vasanthi Bhat will lead a three-hour seminar, "Magical Touch of Hatha Yoga" at the Jewish Community Center, 3921 Fabian Way, Palo Alto.
In her more than 38 years of teaching yoga, Bhat has discovered that few people realize the true purpose and benefits of this ancient art and science. Yoga, as she explains, does not require hours of dedicated practice to reap its benefits. The uniqueness in her teaching is that she emphasizes that just a few minutes of daily practice can help maintain good health and sustain energy.

Bhat has successfully taught yoga to seniors whose physical condition limits their ability to sit on the floor to practice the postures; to children as young as 3 whose attention span is naturally limited; and to stressed-out Silicon Valley engineers who never believed they'd have the time to invest in themselves. Bhat's simple and easy-to-practice techniques are tailored for the modern world while retaining the time-tested principles and spiritual depth of the original Hatha Yoga.

Bhat’s family yoga sessions are very popular with parents and children alike. Children’s teachers have reported marked improvements in their performance at school due to increased attention span and discipline. Children with allergies and asthma have been able to overcome these conditions. And many kids have been able to keep their vision problems in check through eye exercises. Parents have the unique advantage of being able to relax in the class along with their children.

The April 6 program will showcase short yoga routines by Bhat and her students that promote healing, energy, concentration, flexibility, cardiovascular health and fitness. These routines help alleviate conditions such as allergy, asthma, neck, shoulder and back pain, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, anxiety, insomnia, obesity, diabetes and blood pressure. A key focus of the program is the use of simple yoga techniques to help maintain inner harmony and prevent and heal stress-induced diseases. Leading physicians will explain the physiological basis for the benefits of Yoga techniques.
