Kirti Daryanani is the founder & director of Lotus Yoga Aruba®, Lotus Yoga Living by Kirti® and is a “Himalayan Institute Teachers Association” Certifed Yoga Instructor registered at Yoga Alliance (RYT). Kirti travels, mainly between Asia and the Caribbean, spreading her knowledge through lectures, workshops and classes on Yoga philosophy, health and well-being.
Kirti was drawn to Yoga at the very young age of 12 after taking her first Yoga class and has been blessed to be in the presence of Gurus and Masters of Yoga since then. Kirti became a Yoga instructor in 2009.
Prior to becoming a Yoga Instructor, Kirti was part of top management running various businesses; this in turn gave her firsthand experience of the daily stresses and struggles in life. Kirti knows that not everyone seeks out Yoga classes to accomplish challenging poses, but rather to obtain the real benefits of a Yoga practice which are to learn how to breathe, surrender trustfully and remain balanced in daily life.
She believes Yoga teaches us to acknowledge ourselves, to consciously “pause” the ongoing demands of life and redirect our intention inward. She is an avid believer that the practice of Yoga never stops, especially when we are off the mat.
