Coming from the motherland, Yogic teachings have been an integral aspect of my lifestyle for almost 30 years.

A year later, she completed my teacher training certification in Rishikesh and since then she find herself returning back to India every few months to further enhance her teaching and knowledge.

Her teaching style is oriented towards the traditional Hatha practice, which is relatively slow and great for students who prefer a strong yet more mindful style. For her, Yoga is a tool to help bring peace to the mind and body, purifying the body for deeper spiritual practices such as pranayama and meditation.
