As an Indian American, my first experience with yoga was when I went to a Hindu camp as a kid. I remember thinking it was weird and that meditation was an impossible task where I had to “focus on nothing.” I didn’t really practice yoga again until after college. I started practicing regularly and wanted to know more so I did my first teacher training in India at the Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana near Bangalore.
That was the beginning of my teaching career over 10 years ago. Since then, I’ve completed over 800 hours of formal training, including areas like anatomy, biomechanics, injury awareness + prevention, kinesiology, meditation, prenatal yoga, Functional Range Conditioning®, and more.
In addition to teaching private yoga sessions, I’m a movement educator on staff for several yoga training programs, I mentor yoga teachers, and I volunteer with World Spine Care Yoga Project.
