Thelma is a certified yoga teacher – Level 1 (200 Hours) from Yoga Arts Australia and Level 2 (300 Hours) from Brahmani Yoga India – and a chakra therapist who teaches/practices mainly in Indonesia. She has her own yoga studio named KARMARATI in the Kemang area of Jakarta and has been teaching yoga since 2009. Her classes comprise of Vinyasa Flow, bioenergetic movement, sequential movement and deep awareness to the subtle elemental energy of the chakras. She combines structure and exploration in all her yoga classes and public chakra workshops. Her approach to the therapeutic chakra system is holistic. She provides therapies associated with chakra trance, chakra psychology diagnostic, movement therapy and chakra healing mudra (hand gestures). Thelma holds a master’s degree in Psychology from the University of Indonesia, and she utilizes the knowledge of psychology towards a more integrated yoga and chakra system practice for the well-being of her clients. Her aim is the self-empowerment and self-discovery of her clients through their own gradual and consistent practice.
Thelma’s recent experience with Brahmani Yoga has inspired and enriched her orientation towards holistic yoga. With joy and humility, Thelma dedicates KARMARATI as the first yoga studio in Indonesia to adopt the Brahmani Yoga style.
Thelma is grateful for the teachers on her path of yoga and chakra: Louisa Sear, Lucy Roberts, the late Sue Pendlebury, Emil E. Wendel, Julie Martin, Rhys Beynon, Anodea Judith and Selene Vega.
