Nirmala Norma Berrios

Nirmala has been practicing yoga since the age of 16. For as long as she could remember, she was always interested in her purpose and the deeper meaning of life.

For the past 18 years she has immersed herself in Vedanta and Samkhya philosophy, as well as Self Study with her Guru, Shri Manorama Devi Ma, director of Sanskrit Studies and Luminous Soul Method.  She has studied sanskrit verses and texts with translations from her Guru Manorama and parama Guru, Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati Udasina.  These included teachings from The Upanishads, Atma Bhodha, Pantanjali’s Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita to name a few.

Nirmala teaches a more traditional style of Iyengar Yoga which focuses on alignment and breath awareness. She received her certification from Laughing Lotus in NYC in 2004.  Her classes would often include, pranayama breath exercises and end with a guided meditation.
