AtréYoga is a special form of yoga developed by Zubin Atré. This style consists of five structured series of postures or asanas. AtréYoga lays special emphasis on biomechanics, meticulously studying muscle movements in order to refine existing asanas and increase their effectiveness. The studio also teaches a variety of other yoga systems including Ashtanga and Iyengar, offering the best form suited to an individual’s lifestyle. The studio believes in providing maximum attention to an individual and therefore, their class sizes are kept small, with no more than eight students attending each group session.

Seema Sondhi’s first experience with yoga was after she suffered three lumbar slip discs and the doctors advised her to take complete bed rest. The pain, coupled with lack of mobility, left Sondhi with a difficult physical and mental barrier to overcome. This was when she took up restorative yoga classes and within a year, she made a stunning recovery. Since then, Sondhi has become a well-known yoga instructor and her personal experience plays an important part in motivating her students.
