Hey, I'm Ajeet!
Knoxville, Tennessee, United States · Member since January 2011

I am the owner of Light Tree ~ Healing Home & Yoga Bnb. We host passion-driven artists, travelers, scientists, happy parents and children, who access their true essence of Self through yoga, dance, meditation and natural, sustainable living.

I am a yogi and performance artist and I enjoy traveling to communities around the world, leading workshops, sharing my work and teaching. As my 17 year old son puts it, "Ajeet helps to smooth out the rough edges of a busy day, or put a higher curve in a smooth day". I've also been told after a healing session with me, it's like where there were hills, there is only speed bumps. I like this analogy.

I teach from a somatic view--it's all in our bones~ our heart and mind, emotions and illness ~ weave their web of peacefulness or stress that holds our world in place. I'm working right now teaching my children's yoga program, Dancing Spider Yoga which helps both parents and teachers share and learn yoga, while giving them 100% of the tools they need to bring yoga into their community and family.

While you are here, I'll have clients for yoga classes, Full Moon gatherings and healing sessions. If you like, go to my website, (website hidden), and book a session for yourself. It'll take the rough edges off your travel and give you good sleep. I'm also here to share stories, good food recipes, and good simple laughter.

In the summer I teach an Acting Course through the University of Tennessee through Kids U! My program, Got Talent! is an improvisational acting and theatrical class for elementary aged children. During the year, I lead Indian kirtan, Kundalini Yoga and meditation and also perform a Children's Yoga Live! concert for families.

I live in the suburbs, so going hiking and visiting farms is a must! I'm part of several local community organizations, and am a beloved arts-driven social activist, permaculture student and intentional community expert. In this line of work, I help women and men uncover what is holding back their passion in life, and through the lens of yoga and meditation, absolutely reduce their stress so that they can embrace all of life with grace, radiance, and deep bliss

As a yoga and performing arts-in-education specialist I have taught at Natures Way Montessori School, Knoxville County Magnet Schools, Children's Hospital, YMCA, The Glowing Body, Helen Ross Mcnabb Mental Health Center, Sisters of the Rainbow, Knoxville County Public Defenders Office, and the Public Library.

I am available for a private session as a great way to 'get grounded' once you arrive! If you would like to schedule a Relax into Radiance day during your stay at Yoga Nivas, it would include a 1 hour healing, followed by a detoxifying juice. For more information on these sessions, please visit my site, (website hidden)

Namaste'
