Our mission is to spread peace, health, and joy through the practice and philosophy of yoga and Vedanta.

We are a traditional yoga ashram with a mission to teach classical yoga. All are welcome to come to our ashram, we learn from all traditions, and actively promote Unity in Diversity through interfaith and interspiritual dialog, including perspectives from science and the arts. We seek to promote outer peace in the world through inner peace, by sharing the wisdom and practices of yoga and contributing to a positive shift in consciousness on the planet. The ashram was founded by Swami Vishnudevananda, named in honor of his teacher, Swami Sivananda, and continues to teach in the lineage of the two great yoga masters.

Reaching Teens Through Yoga with Charlotta Martinus (Chandrika) | sivanandabahamas.org

Reaching Teens Through Yoga with Charlotta Martinus (Chandrika)

Please share what you do in 10-15 words: I run a company called TeenYoga, which trains yoga teachers to work with teens in creative and inclusive ways, following the main principles of yoga.

Why do you do what you do? Because I have two teenage sons who I feel have been very misunderstood as have many other teens and I think yoga can help with issues that they are facing. I think many people are scared of teens and do not believe they can be helped. I believe yoga is a treasure to teach them the three Rs: relax, repair, and relate.

What are you currently fascinated by in your work? I have recently finished a two-year program in neuroscience and I specialized in the neuroscience of the brain, I am currently writing a book on this topic and including recent research in mindfulness for teens too.

How did you come to your path? Any aha moments or key teachers? When I was given a job in a school and the boys started hitting each other with yoga mats and the girls started texting during yoga, I knew there had to be a better method in working with them, the aha moment was the first time Yoga Nidra and my principles worked on them!

What book(s) are you currently reading? I am reading the Bhagavad Gita (always) and also just finished Dharma by Simon Haas.

Have you been to the Yoga Retreat before? I have not, though I look forward to it!
