I grew up practicing yoga with my mom in India. I really wish I could say that I had a profound experience and that it helped me be a better student. No! My mom, like every good parent, bribed me to practice. What I didn’t know is that she sowed a seed of a mindfulness practice in me that served me for years to come.
When I left my unsatisfactory job as a technical program manager to heal my health issues caused by stress, I turned to yoga. Coming from a culture that believes in curing the root cause instead of merely masking the symptom, I began my healing journey by changing my lifestyle to include more self-care, self-inquiry, and energy healing – in short, yoga.
Amazed by how simple tools had such profound effects I began sharing them with other busy people, coaching them to reconnect with their truth and start living an authentic life. My goal is to support my students in their healing journeys from illness to wellness to stillness. I help by customizing the yoga tools of asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, and radical self-inquiry to create conscious sustainable change.
Being a lifelong learner, I continue to experiment with new tools to help me balance my life that ranges from motherhood to caring for my aging parents, and everything else in between.
