Yoga instructor Chitra Singh is passionate about yoga. But her main reason for teaching yoga is to connect with, and serve, people in need.
Singh teaches a weekly restorative yoga class for Waterford Place participants, helping them improve their physical strength, stability and flexibility and find mental calm and balance.
She enjoys seeing a look of calm — and a smile — on the faces of participants in her program. “Sometimes, they reach out to me and describe how they have improved by taking my class,” Singh says. “That is the best part of my job.”
In addition to her work at Waterford Place, Singh teaches other yoga classes during the week. On weekends, she volunteers, teaching yoga to veterans and their families.
A wife and mother, Singh likes to spend all of her free time with her family. “We cook and eat dinner together at home most nights and often sit together to watch a movie,” she says.
Singh’s message to others is to recognize that every moment of life is precious. “We must strive to live it by being good to others and ourselves,” she says. “Be good to yourself by taking good care of your body and mind. Eat well, sleep well, exercise, practice yoga and take care of your mind by being kind and loving to others.”
On June 2, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Chitra Singh and vibrational sound therapist Sandy LaBianco-Brown will offer a relaxing evening of “Restorative Yoga with Tibetan Singing Bowls” to leave you feeling refreshed and renewed. This virtual class will lead you through supported poses to relax the body, while a sound meditation enhances the experience. Register now for this free program.
