TAPASHI DEVCHOUDHURY

TAPASHI DEVCHOUDHURY

Born in a Hindu family amidst the serene valleys and rolling hills of far Northeast India, Tapashi was introduced to asanas very early in her life by her father, while her mother passed on the wisdom of ancient Hindu philosophies, and the subtle meanings of Sanskrit shlokas and mantras. In course of time, she took to meditation. She later followed a TTC in traditional Hatha yoga at Yoga Vidya Gurukul – a classical Indian Ashram, and has since followed numerous workshops and trainings to deepen her understanding and practice.

Tapashi offers regular Yoga classes as well as sessions of Mantra chanting & meditation in Goa, where she lives during the winter. She brings the wisdom of her ancestors into her classes in a way that is accesible to the modern body and mind.

‘One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well’
– Virginia Woolf

As far back as I can remember I have always had a love for food, good food.

And cooking was always an interest for me, but I never considered making it my profession till 2013.

In that year I switched to plant-based cooking (after about 12 years of being a flexitarian), and I developed a hunger to explore plant-based cooking. Something happened in my mind and soul. It was as if a door that had been closed, all of a sudden opened and all this culinary creativity spilt out. I could really get excited about going to a fruit and veggie market and just imagining all the dishes I could make with the produce.

I wake up in the morning planning my meals for the day. Throughout the day I think about what I still have in the fridge and what I can make with it and am eager to go home and try out my new ideas.

In 2014 I started culinary school to be trained as a vegan chef. From the first day at school, I was hooked completely. Besides learning all the necessary skills and knowledge, there was also a focus on healthy eating. Besides the basics of cooking, I also gained some basic knowledge about Ayurvedic cooking, Macrobiotic cooking and RAW cooking. In my cooking, I like to mix and match and explore all possibilities.

To me food is not merely a means to nourish the body, it is also a means to nourish the soul. So the combination of food and yoga is one that really appeals to me. At retreats, I cook for I like to work closely together with the yoga teacher and discuss what the processes are and which food is good to help that process.

I love thematic cooking.

Next, to my catering business, I work as a studio manager for a yoga studio.

The healing power of yoga

Yoga has been part of my life for a good 10 years now. After I’d broken one of my vertebrates in 2006, my physiotherapist introduced me to yoga during my recovery process. Since I’ve been born with double hip dysplasia (a deformed and misaligned hip condition), I was already quite accustomed with hip and lower back pain. So basically I was more then willing to try anything that could bring me some relief.

It worked well for me. I enjoyed yoga, and my back improved and strengthened.

Inner silence
I’ve always had a really busy mind to say the least, but Yoga has brought me the unexpected surprise of inner peace.Yoga also thought me to stand still, trust my intuition and find my inner safety house.

Physically Yoga keeps teaching me to find the perfect balance between strength and flexibility. And perhaps more importantly; it teaches me to listen to the early signals my body sends me when I’m either too physically passive or active. I’m more than grateful to say that at this moment my body is strong, flexible and pain free.

Education & lifelong student
I’m also grateful for all the wisdom that I’ve been able to receive and study so far on my yoga journey. And I’m looking forward to this beautiful lifelong study ahead.

In 2012 I traveled to Dharamsala India where I completed my first 200 hours Hatha Yoga Teacher Training (RYT 200, Chandra Yoga International).

Additional trainings:

  • 2014: 2 year LifeCoaching Training at Atma School for Coaching in Amersfoort.
  • 2016: RYT 200 Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Skadi van Paasschen & Johan Noorloos (DNY Amsterdam)
  • 2016: MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy)

Classes & influences
Meditation and yoga teachers as Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, Sarah Powers, Bernie Clark and Paul Grilley are great inspirations to me and their wisdom and knowledge inspire my teachings and coaching sessions.

Having said that, my fellow teachers of tulsi treats are likewise choc-full of inspiration every time I see them.

I value to work from a place of ease, kindness and play. It’s a perfect foundation to heal, grow and strengthen. When we embrace the spirit of ‘perfectly imperfect’ our mind, body and hearts feel safe enough to open up and try new things on and off the yoga mat.

Become more flexible in mind & body, regardless of how inflexible, old, imperfect or injured you might perceive yourself to be. You can always benefit from yoga. And you do not have to be able to touch your nose with your toes in my class. In fact, you don’t need to touch your toes either! And you are also allowed to laugh (or cry, or both).

I would love to see you in one of my classes or coaching sessions.

With love,

Femke

KAJA KUSNIROVA

Kaja is teaching different styles of hatha yoga (flow & classic & gentle). She became interested in yoga since her first encounter with this art of living in 2004 during her internship in Buenos Aires. After returning to The Hague, she continued practicing on her own and occasionally attended led classes. But after she became a mother (2009), in the need to rediscover her balance, she started to consider the mat her friend for life. This is when she started to follow regular classes at different studios and deepen her own practice by attending various workshops in yoga, mindfulness and meditation. At this point she became aware of the ‘non-physical’ aspects of yoga and that only reinforced her belief that she was moving in the right direction. With growing passion and curiosity in yogic lifestyle & philosophy, she decided to follow a Hatha Yoga Teacher Training, which was one of the best presents she could ever give to herself.


In her classes, she will create a space for you to explore the benefits of ‘yoga’ beyond the physical aspects, and to experience the effortless flow of the life energy by increasing your awareness of the body and mind.

‘For me, yoga has become an infinite resource of ‘tools’ how to live more present, fulfilled and joyful life and I’m grateful to be sharing this with you!’

Next to yoga, Kaja is a passionate foodie and with her company ‘KAYA healthy delights’ she creates healthy, nourishing, plant-based raw treats for your party, event or a meeting.
