Ms. Fharzana Siraj has been practicing yoga since the tender age of 13. After a bout of backpain which occured due to improper practice she modified her practice to Iyengar Yoga which is based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar, who is the foremost authority on yoga in modern times. This cured her completely and thus began her commitment and passion towards Iyengar Yoga. Her commitment and perseverance led to her being certified by B.K.S Iyengar as a yoga practitioner and trainer, an achievement in itself. She continued to enhance her knowledge by doing a Doctorate in Alternate Medicine and she is currently pursuing her research in the same domain.
HER APPROACH DEVELOPS SELF-AWARENESS THROUGH PRECISION IN THE ASANAS AND ATTENTION TO THE SUBTLETIES OF BODY, BREATH AND MIND, WHICH IS THE BASIS OF ANY WELLNESS.
She co-founded Krshn Yoga, a therapeutic yoga centre, to treat patients suffering from chronic and acute pain and in a short span of time set up six Yoga Centres across Chennai.
She has recently set up 'Orange Ray', a holistic wellness centre which specializes in various alternate form of therapies with special emphasis on Therapeutic Yoga.
It is her firm belief that people of all ages, body types, and medical histories can practice yoga if they have a keen willingness to learn. She believes, Individuals need not adapt themselves to do yoga but that yoga has to be customised for the individual. She is a Modern Yogi to her students who range from young children to 70 plus adults.
Ms. Fharzana Siraj personally trains all trainers at Orange Ray through a rigorous and consistent regime. The training module for the yoga classes is personally prepared by her based on best practices from different forms of yoga.
Her therapy begins with studying the patient and the way he or she functions and moves.
THE ORIGINS AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE AILMENT IN QUESTION IS CAREFULLY OBSERVED AND THE BODY IS TREATED AS A WHOLE WITHOUT ISOLATING THE INJURED AREA, THEREBY GIVING LONG LASTING RELIEF.
The Asanas are modified and taught to patients to overcome the ailment and subsequent postural corrections are made to discourage further bouts of pain. She is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and has taught and held medical camps at International Yoga Festival, Rishikesh. She has also been a speaker at the INTRACOM 2014 at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She has conducted many training workshops for various corporates.
