Aditi Grandy, CNM
During my pregnancy in 1998, I came to yoga. Colette was my first yoga teacher. Attending weekly prenatal yoga classes brought mobility and comfort in my body, calmness in my spirit, connection in my mind. The birth of my daughter at home was a life changing, amazing experience. Yoga enhanced the flexibility of my body and mind to take this life altering journey.
Then there is parenting! The birth is an amazing day that is the seed for the years of personal transformation offered in daily parenting. Daily looking into the reflection like a mirror, parenting brought opportunity for daily growth. Yoga gave me the practice and tools needed for presence as a parent.
Throughout the years, yoga and meditation provided key practice to increasing presence. In 2009, while practicing yoga on a vacation in Zihuatanejo, Mexico I had an awareness that yoga was not just something for my body/mind—it was my spiritual path. Yoga includes all: meditation, body expansion, wisdom—a wholistic spiritual path. I returned to dive deep into the path of yoga and practice more fully with Dawn Torres, in Bothell, Wa where I live.
In 2013, I traveled to India to study with my guru, Anand Mehrotra completing Sattva Yoga 200hr Teacher Training. I experienced a profound awakening and passion for sharing this path with others. I returned to India in 2015 and 2016 for further study completing over 500 hrs of study and training with Anand.
In 2014, I returned to my friend and mentor, Colette for prenatal yoga teacher training. I completed Sattva Prenatal Yoga 85hr teacher training in 2015 with Siddhi Ellington and continue to co-teach with her.
And I am a midwife! I have had the honor and privilege of serving as a certified nurse-midwife (CNM) since 1996—caring for women, partners and babies in this amazing journey of life welcoming over 1000 new souls in attendance at births. I am currently practicing at the Midwives Clinic at Northwest Hospital/ UW Medicine—located just a little north of Seattle Holistic Center.
My vision is to meet you at your current place on your life path and support your journey of growth on all levels: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. As we each expand in our consciousness individually, we awaken to our fullness, strength and ability to love, parent consciously and be with all that life presents to us, in each moment.
