Meet Soul Spark Yoga.

Namaste,
I am Audrey Marie Forbes,
owner and lead teacher of Soul Spark Yoga.

02-YA-TEACHER-ERYT-200-500
As a graduate of the 200-hour and 300-hour International Yoga Teacher Training programs of Intuitive Flow in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia in 2013 and 2016, I am trained in Yoga Pranala and Viniyoga in the Hatha style and a registered teacher under the Yoga Alliance with more than 2000 teaching hours. Under the guidance of various teachers, I received a comprehensive and authentic transmission of the teachings of Yoga: pranayama, asana, bandha, mudra, meditation, chanting, Yoga Nidra, basic principles of Ayurveda, marma therapy, energy movements, and the study of Yogic texts.

After starting Yoga in 2007 and having a personal practice for several years, I have personally witnessed how a daily Yoga practice can holistically affect one’s life. From transforming the body on the mat to one’s very spirit, I am an advocate of the Yogic tradition in its fullness.

Besides teaching a variety of Yoga classes at my studio in Kent on East Hill, I also hold series classes that deepen knowledge of Yoga, from pranayama to Ayurveda and to chanting. My goal as a teacher is to inspire my students to adopt the holistic lifestyle that Yoga offers.

Awaken, grow, illuminate. That is our shared goal.

Namaste…I hope we meet soon.

Namaste,
I am Chandra Gurung.

Since I was a teenager I had a question in my mind. I was inquiring ‘who am I?’. The very question and concern led me to Yoga. For the first time, I knowingly got into the subject of Yoga in 2002. Eventually, I got the answer to not only that spiritual question but many others.

Physically, psychologically, and socially I felt stronger and agile than ever before. I then realized my desire to share my learning and experience to the people who need it. Since 2006, I have been sharing my experience of Yoga to the hundreds of thousands of people from different corners of Nepal as well as many people of the USA and Europe.

I had the opportunity to learn under the discipleship of Dr. Yogi Vikashananda. Under his tutelage, I learned Hatha Yoga, Yoga philosophy, Naturopathy, and many other nuances of Yoga. Through the intensive and specific program named ‘Five Year Self-transformation and Leadership Development ’ in 2005, I was blessed to get vivid and vast wisdom of Yoga which made me realize that Yoga is not just a physical aspect of life; rather, it is a greater and grander phenomena of life connected on a mental, psychological, and spiritual level.

It’s my great privilege to be a part of Soul Spark Yoga. While having a Yogic upbringing and learning in the authentic Himalayan teaching of Yoga in Nepal, I feel more responsible to share the experience that I attained in more than a decade.
