FEATURED MASTER TEACHER

DEEPAK CHOPRA

 

Deepak Chopra is one of the leading mind-body spirit Gurus. He seeks to teach the benefits of incorporating meditation and a healthy lifestyle for increasing inner happiness.

Deepak was born in New Delhi, India in 1947. He attended the All India Institute of Medical sciences studying western medicine. In 1968 he came to America and began working in a New Jersey hospital. This led to a successful career in medicine in which he became chief of staff at the New England Memorial Hospital. He also established a growing private medical practice. During this time Deepak Chopra says that he used to smoke a packet of cigarettes a day and also he used to drink heavily to calm his nerves. Increasingly he became uneasy at his approach to life and also he became aware of the limitations of Western medicine. He felt there was something missing in his approach to medical care. Therefore he increasingly became interested in Ayurvedic medicine, which stresses a more holistic approach to medical care.

After studying the ancient Indian system of ayurveda and yoga in 1995 He founded the The Chopra Center for Well Being in California. This serves as a vehicle for spreading his message of alternative medicine and holistic well being. He sees his mission asv“Bridging the technological miracles of the west with the wisdom of the east”

His main teaching and beliefs are that to attain happiness we need to consider several things. Firstly we should find time for meditation and silencing the mind. This helps us to avoid negative emotions and thoughts. Deepak stresses that negative emotions are like toxins just like bad food could be. He also teaches that we should try to listen to the signals of our body and develop our intuition. With regard to physical health he says there is a close connection between our physical health and our state of mind. This is why he is often associated as one of the pre-eminent leaders of the mind body spirit movement. To improve physical health he says we should be very careful about what we eat. Also if we can eat in the right consciousness then it will help.

Deepak Chopra has had over 42 books published selling over 20 million copies world wide. His books range from translations of the Sufi poet Rumi to “A Holistic Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth” As a public speaker he is also in great demand and has appeared as a keynote speaker at many prestigious events including the inauguration of the State of the World Forum, hosted by Mikhail Gorbachev.

Dr. Chopra is a fellow of the American College of Physicians and a member of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.

SCOTT NEESON

 

“Some days are OK, some are good and some will stay with me forever.” -Scott Neeson

When Hollywood marketing executive Scott Neeson embarked on a sabbatical between jobs in 2003, he couldn’t have imagined how it would change his life. In Phnom Penh, Scott saw hundreds of children and their families living and working on the Steung Meanchey garbage dump, one of the most toxic environments imaginable. It was a moment that changed his life.

Scott had a 26-year career in the film business, including tenure as President of 20th Century Fox International. Scott thought he had it all – a powerful role in the film industry, celebrity friends, a big house, fancy cars and a boat.

But in 2003, Scott’s view on life changed completely when he found himself looking out across the Steung Meanchey garbage dump at hundreds of children scavenging through garbage.

Soon after, Scott made the decision to resign from his job, sell all of his possessions and focus his energy and passion into Cambodian Children’s Fund. Twelve years later and Scott’s journey still captivates, inspires and bewilders people from all over the world.

“The moment I stepped there it was the single most impactful moment in my life. I was standing there facing into the abyss.”

TABAY ATKINS

Tabay guiding a yoga class

 

Tabay is The Youngest Certified Yoga Teacher in America.  He finished his 200 Hour Intensive Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training one week before his 11th birthday Tabay has joined his mom, Sahel, on a long list of specialized Yoga Teacher Trainings since he was 7 years old.  

Tabay is certified in 6 different trainings:
200 Hour Vinyasa Yoga, Circus Yoga Ring 1 & 2, Yoga for Kids, Yoga for Tweens and Teens, and Yoga for Autism Spectrum.  
He is Homeschooled and teaches weekly teen and adult Donation Based Vinyasa Yoga Classes at his moms yoga studio, CARE4YOGA, in San Clemente, California.  He donates 100% of the money he makes to Kids who have Cancer.  He also helps his mom teach her kids yoga classes. In addition to studio classes, he teaches private lessons at clients homes, and teaches with his mom and does special workshops all over the world.  

Tabay's journey with Yoga started at the same time his mom's yoga journey started.  Sahel was just 2 weeks cancer free when she started a 200 hour vinyasa teacher training, and he was by her side every step of the way. After having cancer and going through chemo treatments, she could barely walk on her own.  She was sad, scared and worried. Tabay noticed that after doing yoga, it helped her regain her physical strength and helped her feel better emotionally and mentally as well.  He knew then and there that he wanted to become a yoga teacher so that he could help others heal with the practice of yoga the way yoga helped heal his Mom.  

Tabay had a choice at the end of 5th grade to either go on a fun, summer vacation to Europe or take the teacher training. And, as much as he loves to travel, he chose to take the intensive teacher training so that he could start helping people right away.  

Tabay's passions are Yoga, Legos, Baking, Traveling, and Collecting Coins. His dream is to teach and share the benefits and lifestyle of yoga to everyone that he possibly can, all over the world. He feels that the more people that know about yoga and practice it, the better our world will be. He is a true definition of what yoga is.
