Happy New Year! For a happier and healthier you, Abha is leading a retreat - Renew with Yoga & Meditation, January 25th @ ISKCON Phoenix.

[10/28/19]   Happy Diwali! Best wishes to all on this Festival of Lights, may we experience the illumination within and radiate its beauty.


Abha looks forward to the Full Moon Meditation with The Meditation Center - Affiliate of the Himalayan Yoga Meditation Societies International.

You too are invited to sit in meditation for an hour wherever you are, in your home or with friends. Total beginners and longtime practitioners. All are Welcome! If you cannot sit for the entire hour, sit as long as you are able; as Swami Veda has said, “Let the quietness of the mind continue even after you rise..”

For full moon meditation times throughout the world and further instructions go to https://themeditationcenter.org/core-practice/full-moon-meditation/

"Yoga Philosophy views the mind as Universal field; its waves passing through us and becoming our individual minds. This Universal mind is a radiant force and is also known as a Universal Guru within.

When all sit together at the same time even in different parts of the world, they connect to the Universal Guru mind and generate a strong field, like so many magnets being joined together and forming a much stronger magnet; the strength of each then equals the combined strength of all.

Thus it is when we join together in meditation, and together enter the Guru-mind's Field. On certain days of the year the Wave of Beauty and the Wave of Bliss flows very strong. These are the sacred days." Text courtesy of ahymsin.org.

PM Modi's address at 4th International Yoga Day Celebrations in Dehradun

International Yoga Day was celebrated last Thursday across the world! At its birthplace, in the laps of the Himalayas, oceans of people united to honor this powerful gift and India's Prime Minister salutes Yoga as "a unifying force, a ray of hope for the world, it can lead us from illness to wellness..." This address is in Hindi, with some English parts, but the enthusiasm supersedes language.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address at 4th International Yoga Day Celebrations in Dehradun

[06/11/18]   Inspired by comments from Maxine Frank, who has attended three Abha Yoga sessions -

"Abha is an excellent teacher, I appreciate all the help she has provided me to move my body and get it in better condition. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and bad knee, neck, back, and shoulder issues and pain, but Abha has helped me move better and lessen my pain. I am sitting upright and feel so much better."

Is ancient India overrated ? A mindblowing analysis by Chinese Ex Professor from University of Toronto

Happy to see this published on social media, and proud of my Indian heritage!

Hesitate in recalling that when I arrived in US in the early 70's, my American friends mostly associated India with the holy cows and poverty. As a pre-teen you do your best to fit in, but tried to gently change perceptions, such as my first Yoga speech titled " Yoga is not for Yo-Yos". Fast forward to the next generation, my daughter and I studied martial arts for many years, but never was there a mention of it's origins in India. Few months ago, some Yoga enthusiasts and long time practitioners were surprised to learn the traditional meaning of Yoga and it's origins in India.

Swami Mukundananda

International Day of Yoga, a recognition of this amazing art and science of joyful living brought to us from the austerities of the ancient Yogis. I am grateful and honored to be part of the Yoga tradition and continue the Parampara. Swami Mukundananda explains Yoga, and how it is so valuable.


We look at the nature outside and get marvelled by its beauty, but there is far more beauty within us. There is infinite potential of beauty within each one of us, waiting to be discovered.

The science of Yoga is a technique that helps us to manifest the divinity that lies hidden within the inner recesses of our personality. When we come in touch with the divinity within us we experience our true selves which are pure joy.

Watch Swami Mukundananda's special address on the occasion of International Day of Yoga in Dallas, TX. Swamiji spoke to an audience of Yoga teachers, practitioners and learners attending the 2nd Dallas Yoga Fest this year.

Thoughts on humanity, fame and love

Impressive philosophical talk from a Bollywood superstar! He is not in Swami garbs, but I hear yoga principles of love, humbleness, chakra, etc.

ted.com "I sell dreams, and I peddle love to millions of people," says Shah Rukh Khan, Bollywood's biggest star. In this charming, funny talk, Khan traces the arc of his life, showcases a few of his famous dance moves and shares hard-earned wisdom from a life spent in the spotlight.

Beginning Meditation

Enjoy this relaxation, taking you to the door steps of Meditation (maximum volume recommended). Your journey begins as the audio ends, remain in the silent zone for as long as you want. Please practice for a few days, and share your experience!


"There is something that you can do to help create peace in the world, and that is to make yourself peaceful. The first step in this is doing some real soul-searching to find out what has made you peace less in the first place. Turning your mind within allows you to discover, underneath the many surfaced emotions of everyday life, a deep, undisturbed pool of spiritual well-being. We need to explore that part of the self, not just to understand it, but to experience it again and again. This is a very satisfying experience, one that refreshes the soul and fills it with peace..." - Brahma Kumaris on Making Peace

How to Open Your 7 Chakras || The Science of The Chakras

Interesting and informative presentation; this is Diving Deep into the Yoga science of Chakras (with the western pronunciation of Chakras - just having fun). Abha Yoga would add purification techniques (Kriyas), Breathing Practices (Pranayama), Poses ( Asanas), Concentration (Dharana) and Meditation (Dhyan) to awaken, balance, and stabilize (not just open) the Chakras.

Our Story

Abha Yoga is Abha Gupta Ellis’s presentation and use of the best yoga & meditation techniques learned from her many yoga teachers and experiences over the decades. A 25+ year corporate career gave Abha the skills for analyzing and improving business performance. Now she leverages these skills and mindset along with her vast yoga toolkit to optimize and improve human performance and deliver customized best practices.

Abha has been a yoga practitioner and advocate since the age of 11. Soon after she moved to US from an Indian village, she was drawn to yoga for its physical, philosophical, psychological depth. She has studied and practiced many aspects of Yoga; and is a certified/registered yoga teacher ((CYT/RYT) and a Certified Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT). Her teaching and training are very systematic and logical, skills she developed through her prior education as a chemical engineer, MBA, and corporate business analyst/consultant. Abha sees yoga and meditation as much more than a physical exercise. She has used yoga to help herself with stress, pain from injuries, weight management, and asthma.

Abha started teaching integral gentle Yoga publicly in 2000. She wanted to share yoga & meditation with everybody. She has seen many great results and transformations with her yoga services:

· Alignment, range of motion, strength & balance improvements
