She began to learn in depth knowledge of ancient teachings of Yoga at The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in Kerala, India. After finding its profound benefits with the daily practice of Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation and Karma Yoga, it completely changed her perspective of the body, mind, energy and spirituality.

The call for sharing this knowledge was so deep in her that she started to teach Hatha Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation at Sivananda Yoga Centre.  She loves to bring dynamism and enthusiasm in her classes.

This practice made her realise that stillness exists within all of us, undistorted by what we do or don’t do on the outside but this point of stillness inside remains the same always. She is very excited to share her experience with you and see what it can bring for you.
