ayu is about life and living joyously with grace. It is the result of Jyoti's years of sharing the practices of Yog Sadhana with seekers.
introduced to yog at age 8 by her father in 1969 she learned the basic tenets of yam, niyam, asan and pranayam from him. Formal training started at age 11 in Patna, Bihar.
she met her Guru Yogiraj Siddhanath first in a vision in 1998 and then personally at his forest ashram in Pune a few months later. She trained under him in the true Guru-shishya Parampara for over 24 years. As a kriyacharya and senior disciple, she shared the sacred practice of Mahavatar Babaji's Kundalini Kriya Yoga as taught by her guru from early 1999.
today while deepening her own sadhana, she is putting together an archive of yogic practices to be made available online. She is also in the process of writing her second book, Yog Uninterrupted. Her first, One Master one disciple, was about discipleship and this one about the grace that ensued from that sacred divine commitment to the Guru.
"an advanced yogic realisation is that everything has consciousness, the rocks, the trees, the sand underneath our feet, the chair we are sitting on, the bed we lie on, the space we occupy; the universe a living being with every atom infused with intelligence. The ultimate purpose of yog sadhana being the realisation of the individual spirit to be a part of this vaster universal divine spirit, call it what you will," she says.
achieving this seamlessly by combining ancient yogic practices within modern day living is the purpose of ayu.
at ayu, together we take the step towards awakened liberated living.
