"Stretch your Mind | Balance your Life | Reach your Potential"
The Supatha Yoga Method is uniquely inspired by Sri Lakshmi Devi's many years of comprehensive study of Anatomy and Physiology along with her broad training in Yoga Sciences as well as her extensive background and education in the Health and Fitness Industry.
Sri Devi describes her approach to yoga and Supatha 1/4 series Flow as "well rounded with a noteworthy touch of edginess to keep it grounded in reality." Her personal history through the path of Health and Healing evokes in Lakshmi the ability to encourage her students, to hold them to their commitments and to themselves with compassion; not judgment and an open heart.
Lakshmi expresses "I want to provide a joyful, nurturing, non-competitive space for students to embrace their practice, embrace themselves, grow, stretch and gain vitality...maybe laugh a little along the way. I'm here to teach, to share, to assist in their healing process. I strive to help actualize in my students their own process and paths to themselves.

Balance Your Life
I've been doing yoga on my own since I was a child. It just came naturally to me. Smiles Lakshmi
After a debilitating accident in her youth which required extensive surgeries, Lakshmi suffered with constant back & neck pain, Hip, shoulder and knee injuries as well as debilitating migraines and severe depression.
Taking this traumatic experience & transcending it through applied discipline, mindful awareness, focused intention and above all compassion for oneself is at the heart of Supatha yoga.
Enveloped within Lakshmi's approach to yoga & life lies the mantra, "As we think, so shall we become. Health, healing and personal development start to happen when we change our thought patterns to reflect our best aspirations," offers Lakshmi.
My only way back to health and clarity was actualized through my personal Reiki, Yoga and Mindful meditation practices. It was when I turned to these methods that I felt healing was possible, necessary and where I needed to place my intention to heal.
I am grateful and humbled by all my teachers, they have guided me in finding deep within...the strength, the wisdom and the courage to journey through my limitations with grace and a joyful heart and to never use the word impossible...
