Hera Baboudjian
Isha Hatha Yoga Teacher
Growing up in Montreal, a city tinted with a rich multicultural reality, shaped me into the young adult I became.  I then developed a keen interest in human conditions and ways on how to accompany those living through challenging life situations. I was naturally drawn into completing studies in Social Work and practiced clinical social work for more than 12 years.

In 2006, Yoga came into my life.  I was touched profoundly and continued to deepen my experience with daily sadhana.  After many years, I longed to share this possibility with others and traveled to India to receive my intensive 1750 hour teacher training. I was trained and certified by Isha Hatha Yoga School at the Isha Yoga Center in South India, founded by the Yogi and Mystic, Sadhguru. Once having gone through this transformational experience, I started to teach and share this knowledge, by imparting classical hatha yoga practices in its authentic form.

Co-founder of Akasha – Yoga & Ayurveda, I am currently based in Montreal, offering workshops in various cities in Canada and in Europe.

Born and raised in Portugal, I moved to Canada in 2009, In Montreal I started practicing Kung Fu and studied Chinese Medicine for a short while. Later on, when I stumbled upon a Robert Svoboda book I discovered Ayurveda. Since then, I dedicated myself to learning it, initially through self studies and workshops and then a formal certifications.
 
Through regular travels to South India, I deepen my knowledge of Ayurveda at Vaidyagrama, located near Coimbatore. Behind my passion for this Science of Life rests the intention of sharing this knowledge to empower individuals to create a healthy and harmonious life.
