Her favorite quotes:
"Make your life easeful, useful and peaceful" – Gurudev Sri Swami Satchidananda ji
"Don’t look behind people’s intension, otherwise your life will always be in-tension" - Shri shri Ravi Shankar
Jaya studied at the University of Michigan, NJIT and MIT and worked for a large corporation as an IT professional for over 20 years. In 2003, her life was transformed when she used yoga to heal herself after an accident. That faith in yoga led her to the Integral Yoga Institute (also known as Yogaville) in Buckingham, VA; where she received a certification as an Integral Yoga instructor. In 2005, she also received her certification in the scientifically proven Yoga of the Heart program with Nischala Joy Devi, director of Dr. Dean Ornish's program for reversing Heart disease. In 2008, Jaya completed 13 months of training under Mukunda Stiles, the father of Structural and Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy. This therapy training has transformed her life and Yoga has become her passion.
Jaya Gupta was born and raised in India. She has been practicing yoga for more than 50 years, after initially learning it from her father in India at the age of six.
Jaya is a registered member of the International Association of Yoga Therapist (IAYT), e-RYT 500 Integral yoga instructor and Structural and Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist.
Since 2003, Jaya has taught Beginner Yoga, Multi-level yoga, Gentle/Chair yoga, Yoga for Stress Management as well as Yoga for back, neck or shoulder pain at Fair Oak Hospital in Oak Hill, VA and the Sunrise Assisted Living facility. She has also taught Children’s yoga and many yoga classes in her own studio in Oak Hill, VA, spas, India International School, community centers, and to private clients as young as 5 and as old as 94. They learn to relieve pain, heal from physical or emotional trauma and educate themselves in the daily practice of meditation, yoga, deep relaxation and breathing. For Jaya, yoga is not only a practice, but it’s her life, her passion and her classes are a way to heal her students and heal herself.
