As a 50 year old Aji is often asked the question how she has managed to regain and maintain her pre-pregnancy body weight and youthful looking skin. Her answer has always been that she owes this to her daily practice of yoga, vegetarianism, positive mental attitude, and of course her mother's great genes!

Her enthusiasm has led her into teaching and consultancy for all aspects of multicultural self-improvement. In these stressful days there are few who could not benefit from her guidance and teaching. The first step is just to contact AJ.

Happy Clients

R – Private Reiki and Distant Reiki Client.

Reiki allowed me to relax my body and release the tension and anxieties I had, opening up my chakras to conceive. I am deeply grateful for this journey x

Jimmy – Regular member of Abbey Leisure Centre

AJ is a very thorough Yoga teacher/instructor, her techniques & style are detailed and she is extremely patient in explaining every more & style. She has also recently introduced Meditation at the end of each Yoga class. This is an extra bonus & beneficial to all class attendees. Well done AJ, I would highly recommend her classes.

Simon

I had the most wonderful reiki healing from Aji. I am not really into alternative medicine or treatments but I have seen Aji on three occasions and I have to say each visit was more helpful than seeing a traditional source. I have insomnia and migraines. Each session gave me a greater sense of clarity and peace. My experiences have helped me to cope with some very challenging issues. Thank you Aji for taking care of me. Your room is pretty.

Mavis

Aj is by far the best massage therapist I know. As a sufferer of back pain and a sporty lifestyle a regular massage is very important to me and the skill of the therapist is paramount. She completes the massage with the gently healing energy (Reiki) which is unmatched with any other form of healing massage I have tried. She not only is incredibly gifted and knows her anatomy but she has what I would call a spiritual quality. My jaw dropped when I entered the Therapy Studio, spiritually decorated it has a warm, therapeutic feel. I cannot thank Aj enough for what she has done for me.

Usha from the Elderly Class

“I always enjoy Aji’s Hatha yoga and meditation. She is an excellent teacher and her classes have really helped me mentally and physically. She is a really nice person and I am missing her and the classes. I attend the weekly sessions without fail. She showed me the correct way to use yoga straps and I practice this at home too. Her classes are at a good pace and not too fast. We practice both mat and standing positions. She creates her own meditations and I feel truly calm, happy and relaxed after the session. Her pranayama’s are very calming for the mind and she spends sufficient time demonstrating this properly. I look forward to restarting my yoga sessions”.

Meda

I had my first one to one yoga session with Aji and it was truly amazing. I loved it so much and decided to book regular sessions. The entire room is beautifully decorated adding to the wonderful therapy. Aji is a brilliant teacher, guides me through challenging, advanced postures and explains the reasons behind it. She creates her own meditations and at the end of a yoga session I feel so revitalised and happy. I practice the yoga and breathing techniques at home with confidence knowing that I am doing this correctly. I was amazed at my flexibility after regular sessions and she commented that my flexibility is better than hers! Thank you so much Aji.

Ajnu – Private one to one yoga and meditation

Aji has a pure and caring approach. She incorporates all mind, body and soul yoga principles into every single yoga session! The session always finishes with a beautiful meditation. She has inspired me to laugh like a child and supports me through all the postures. I wholeheartedly recommend Aji’s class to anyone. The best thing about Aji is that she can adapt her session to suit any age, build or fitness level you are. The yoga studio is magical! Try Aji’s one to one yoga class and you will not look back!

Janice

During the lockdown period Aji has provided free Hatha Yoga and Meditation classes to help us deal with the pressures of the coronavirus pandemic. This has especially been helpful as it provides relaxation and calm. I can practice at anytime accessing the live videos as and when required.

Natasha

“ wonderful aromatherapy massage followed by my first reiki treatment, would definitely recommend”

Sotera – Abbey Leisure Centre

“Aji is an amazing yoga tutor and a lovely person. She gives clear guidance throughout the practice so you don’t have to check to see if you are doing the right thing. At the beginning of each class she always checks to see if anyone had injuries or pain and let them know how far they can go in a pose or give them any useful advice as appropriate which is very helpful. Aji always add new techniques as one progresses, I enjoy that very much, because I like to explore new challenges. Aji pays attention individually and will reposition you if needed to help you get that extra boost from that pose. I particularly love the meditation session at the end because it leaves me feeling relaxed and centered”.

Sotera

“Combining massage, Reiki and meditation is the best because Aji will talk you through the breathing techniques which will help you to relax the body and mind. Aji has the perfect touch, she knew exactly what pressure to use in the different areas of my body. I did not have to ask her to change the pressure. The room was warm, I felt relaxed, perfect lighting, the neck pillow was very comfortable. The beautiful music added to the relaxation, my body and mind was so relaxed and peaceful I did not want it to end. I left with my body, mind and soul rejuvenated”.

Valsamma – Chair of the Sree Narayana Guru Mission

“We are a group of 15 ladies in Ajitha’s class. Most of them are over 60 years of age. We are all physically and mentally capable of doing her classes and enjoy every session. She is a professional and kind yoga teacher so well appreciated Aji and we are all happy. I wish her good luck for the future and may God’s Blessings guide her”.

Roshni

“Aji’s Ayurvedic detox advice bought greater clarity to the mind, body and soul!”

Adi – private one to one yoga and meditation session

“Ajitha is a wonderful Yoga instructor with an excellent technique suitable for all abilities. I wanted to go to someone who not only knew about the asana’s (physical postures) but also has in-depth knowledge about the true essence of yoga. Ajitha has a wonderful knowledge of the physical and the spiritual aspects of yoga. Her sessions are truly enjoyable and offer real benefits for both both and mind. Thanks to her excellent knowhow, I was able to get real meaning behind each exercise and technique. She is very motivating, sincere, fun and friendly. I highly recommend Ajitha for anyone wanting yoga lessons. Thank you Ajitha for being an amazing yoga instructor”.

Haz

“I had the pleasure of having a reiki and body massage by Aji, it was very spiritual, calming, friendly yet professional experience. She made me feel relaxed and out of this world, relieved me of the negative energy and left me amazingly refreshed. She has truly been blessed with magical hands and would recommend her to families and friends. Give her a try and am sure you will come back for more, again and again”.

Lakshmi from the Elderly Yoga Class

“I am a regular attendee of Elderly Yoga at the Sree Narayana Guru Mission centre where Ajitha teaches Hatha Yoga and Meditation. I absolutely love her and her classes too! She makes yoga very safe helping us to stay strong, flexible, happy and relaxed. I particularly love her postures for better balance and stronger bones. I find the use of yoga straps to be very helpful in stretching my knees fully, I practice her techniques regularly at home. Her meditation is truly relaxing and completes the session. She is very patient, kind and calm. At the moment I am self-isolating due to the Coronavirus and really missing her yoga classes. I am really looking forward to restarting my sessions in the near future.. “

Awais – Abbey Leisure Centre and one to one yoga and meditation session

“I would give Ajitha’s yoga sessions a 10/10.

I enjoy Ajitha’s yoga sessions because she creates a friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere for everyone. She teaches us the arts of yoga helping us to connect with our body, mind and soul to bring peace. I have found the breathing techniques most interesting and useful for my health. After practice I notice that it brings calm to the body and mind helping me feel good. I also enjoy the cleansing breaths which really does clear the body of toxins. I like the way Ajitha guides us to use our own imagination during the meditation session, again helping to bring calmness.

Ajitha’s yoga sessions are not like any other yoga classes I have been to as she incorporates different aspects of yoga and not just the asana’s. I also enjoy stretching the muscles using the yoga straps, it helps me to stretch that little bit more without overdoing it. She really gives us an insight to yoga and provides specific techniques to help us deal with any challenges that come our way in our lives”

Ariane

“I have also been doing some Hatha Yoga and meditation classes with Aji, first in her studio in Barking and also online during lockdown. Having a One to One class is perfect for me. Aji is extremely qualified and knows how to adjust her session so it benefits me the most. She explains each movement very well and makes the exercise challenging but fun. I enjoy the online classes even though they are for a diverse audience. She caters for beginners as well as for more advanced viewers and makes the session really fulfilling. I also love the meditation at the end of the class as it gives me a great workout for the body and mind. The whole package”.

Ariane

“I am going to AJ’s Healing Hands with Aji for massages and reiki treatments. I have very bad back and neck pains and Aji is always asking how and where my pains are so she can adjust her massage to help me the most. She finishes the session with a Reiki healing which is pure bliss. Aji is very professional and knowledgeable. She is a kind and caring person who will take time to understand my needs and make the session a really enjoyable experience”.

Usha from the Elderly Class

“I always enjoy Aji’s Hatha yoga and meditation. She is an excellent teacher and her classes have really helped me mentally and physically.

Maria

“The pains to my neck, shoulders, back and knees were much better after my first session and was completely eliminated after the third. I experienced sleep deprivation for years and slept like a newborn baby after receiving my massage and first reiki treatment from Aji. My sleep is a lot better and now feel like a new person. Thank you again you are a gift”.

Meda

“The reiki massage from my experience is the best way to get a complete recovery from any negative energies. It helped to eliminate all my stresses and anxiety. Aji also helped eliminate my mother’s body pains and sleep problem. My mother feels full of energy and I thank Aji for giving this gift to my mother”.

Eda

“I’ve always worked at jobs where I would be at the desk from 9-5 which would give me neck and back pain and now I am a full time lash tech which gives me worse neck and back pains. I have been going to AJ for a few years now and her hands are magic! They literally heal me and relieve the pain. During the massage I can feel the pain leave my body through my arms its magical”

Janice

“I love my Hatha yoga sessions with Aji which I attended by myself and with a friend. As soon as I step into her inviting studio I start to relax. Aji starts by asking if I have any areas of concern to establish which asana’s to be incorporated, or avoided, in my personalised session. She has taught me the importance of breath in yoga and I enjoy learning a wide variety of breathing techniques. Aji is professional with a beautiful personality that shines through. She explains each pose along with a detailed demonstration to ensure I work to the best of my ability. Straps and yoga blocks are available if needed. Yoga is followed by the most amazing meditation session. While I’m laying down in a super snug blanket, Aji soothingly asks me to relax, even my eyelashes relax! Under her guidance I practice visualisation and mindfulness in a controlled manner. I leave each session feeling focussed and positive, they are an essential part of my week”.

Amit and Roshni

“Aji is a committed and honest yoga practitioner. We have benefitted hugely from weekly Hatha yoga practice. It has rejuvenated the mind, body and soul. The personalised sessions have been adapted to our individual needs. Reiki sessions have been therapeutic and healing. These are one to one private sessions that have helped relieve our individual stresses”

Vicky Deputy Manager of the Vibe Youth Centre

“Members of our youth club have had the pleasure of being taught yoga by Aj. A fantastic teacher whose calming influence and patience meant nervous members felt they could participate in the classes and each week we watched their confidence grow! Our youth club has members with a diverse range of needs and disabilities and Aj adapted her sessions to make sure that all members can be included. Aj’s sessions always have a good balance of fun and relaxation which our members greatly enjoy and leave them looking forward to her next session. Would highly recommend her service – local Youth Club”.

Rob

“I was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease and offered physiotherapy as a treatment.

I was advised that I might have to wait for up to nine months for treatment at an NHS hospital.

I was given Aj’s details by a friend and arranged a consultation. She reviewed my doctor’s notes and devised a program of exercises for me. Some of the exercises were undertaken in her therapy room under her guidance and other exercises were for me to undertake in my own home.

After the first treatment I could sense a reduction in the severity of the neck pain that I was experiencing.

I attended six private consultations and exercised at home, after which time I was mostly pain free.

Seeing that Aj of AJ’s Healing Hands was also a qualified yoga instructor, I asked her if she could give me private yoga classes which included the exercises I was already doing to eliminate my neck pain.

As I was a complete beginner to yoga Aj started me with gentle basic Asanas that made the whole yoga experience very enjoyable.

Even though I am now pain free I have continued with private yoga sessions and have greatly improved my fitness and flexibility.

I was eventually given an NHS physiotherapy consultation, which I attended and explained that I was pain free. The consulting doctor said that the exercises that Aj devised for me do, were the same that she would have advised and to continue with the yoga if I was enjoying it.

I am grateful to AJ’s Healing Hands for eliminating my neck pain in such a short time meaning that I didn’t have to remain in pain for six months while waiting for an NHS appointment.

I would recommend Aj’s yoga and therapy classes to all my friends”.
