Usha Devi is the resident Yoga Instructor who organizes the Yoga Center's spiritual, cultural and social activities. She came to India in the late 70s and formally began to study Yoga with her Master BKS Iyengar Guruji in 1993. Even now she spends a few months every year studying with Guruji in Pune. In two serious road accidents, she suffered severe injuries and had to go through over 23 surgeries.
Thanks to the blessings and great effort of her Master, she is able to live again a happy and qualitative life. She believes, "Everybody, young, old, sick or disabled, can practice Yoga to live a healthy and peaceful life. Yoga helps us to face life's struggles with a positive and dynamic spirit." She shares with her students whatever she has received from Guruji.
