I have learnt Bharata Natyam under Devayani ‘s expert coaching for five years . Her classes were a mix of discipline and fun at her beautiful Dance Studio .I can say it was an unforgettable and rewarding experience which gave me a lot of confidence and poise in the long term. Devayani who is a Padma Shri Awardee gives opportunities too to her students to be on stage, TV and Dance Competitions.
With approximately a year of learning Bharata Natyam at Padma Shri Devayani Dance Academy, I have experienced a great transformation in my personality and my artistic side.Kumari Devayani,undoubtedly,is very experienced and a refined artist who not only imparts knowledge about her art but also nurtures that art in her students.I have learned a lot of dance compositions in just 1 year which speaks a lot about her dedication to her institution and her insight of Bharata Natyam teachings.She is a perfectionist with a lively side which very much keeps the fun element alive in her classes.Her dance studios is very comfortable with a nice ambience.
I have been learning Bharata Natyam at Padma Shri Devayani Dance Academy for a few months and my experience has been incredible. Ms. Devayani is a perfectionist and she ensures the same, in the output of our dance. The dance studio is comfortable and the atmosphere allows me to be at peace and concentrate on learning and feeling the art of Bharata Natyam dance. The interaction of student - teacher is clear and fun. I would recommend this Dance Academy to all who are interested in understanding and learning the classical art form.
Kumari Devayani is not only a renowned Bharata Natyam dancer but also an excellent instructor. I have been under her tutelage for 2 years and saw how much care she takes in imparting the finest nuances of the dance form, both in the pure dance and in the expressive dance. Devayani has fulfilled my long cherished dream to discover the magic of Bharata Natyam.
What strikes me at Padma Shri Devayani Dance Academy is not only the level of professionalism and excellence but the attention and care given to everyone, whether in personal training classes or group classes. Devayani herself conducts all the classes.
Devayani effectively helps you strengthening your body and making it more flexible and also shows you the path to building up endurance, with increased concentration and mental peace. Training in yoga by Devayani is creative. It combines Hatha Yoga, Pranayamas and meditation with chanting.
I've been enrolling with Devayani for personal training classes in Yoga and Fitness at her studio in Friends Colony for over 3 months. I have benefited greatly from these classes, not just in terms of improving my overall fitness levels but also mental strength. My body and mind feel stronger which helps me to cope with daily stress better. I find the studio very peaceful and the surrounding area is beautiful, just coming for class every week makes me feel at peace. Devayani, as an instructor, is thorough and very particular about not causing any injuries. I do a proper warm up and cool down with her and have never suffered even the slightest discomfort. All these factors motivate me to be regular and on time for every class. I would recommend her classes for anyone of any age with any level of fitness because she finds a routine that suits you.
