My journey into yoga began as a child.

Yoga was part of our school curriculum and the regular practice was fascinating and fun. Fast forward a few years, the keen interest rekindled and I wanted to pursue learning yoga from a guru. I am grateful to my guru, from whom I not only learnt the asanas but also philosophy of yoga. During the process of daily classes and practice, I was absolutely in love with yoga and the yogic way of life. I felt an immense change with a sense of physical well-being and mental calmness.

After years as a Montessori teacher, I constantly struggled with acute body pains. With long days on my feet and managing a roomful of children, my body felt broken. After a few false starts, I found a yoga instructor, who put me on a path to healing my body. I could feel the benefit of regular yoga classes with reduction of the pains and the energy I found to continue as a teacher.

During the years as I practiced yoga, I have had to deal with various life events including my child’s health. But, having continued practicing yoga and following the philosophy of yoga in my daily life – I found the ability within me to face the pulls and pushes of life. The ability to maintain my mental and emotional equilibrium has been a life changing learning.

My journey with yoga took an unexpected but serendipitous turn, when a friend asked me to teach her yoga. I had recently moved to Boston and was figuring out my life’s calling. Teaching my friends yoga and sharing the bounty that I have received from practicing yoga gave me immense satisfaction. I decided that it was my life’s calling to become a yoga instructor. I also continued increasing my knowledge through regular sessions with my guru.

I practice yoga and continue on the path to increase my knowledge and achieve complete liberation.
