As you get to know my story through my classes, workshops, storytelling sessions or my writings, you might find fragments of my life relatable, and perhaps share a sense of Deja vu?
I found my roots in yoga and meditation at a young age watching my father do his daily yoga and breathing practices in India. However, my own journey began many years ago, in an effort to find work-life balance. With the loss of my mother in 2012, the pressures of work as a biologist & researcher and my intention to be a perfect mom, negative effects of stress consumed me. Physically, I experienced weight gain, digestive and sleep issues. Mentally, I was distracted and restless.
Physical, mental and emotional wellness requires constant reflection, adaptability and a shift in attitude. However, change in attitude is not easy. It demands self-discipline, guidance from knowledgeable teachers and most importantly, the willingness to develop a positive. Yoga and it's ancient philosophy hold nuggets of wisdom that are relevant and truly transformational.
Yoga has taught me the value of self-compassion and self-care. It has made me attentive to the present moment. Only when our cup is full can we share from it. As my foundation in yoga is deepening, new doors have opened up. I am now advancing my knowledge in Ayurveda, the ancient system of holistic well-being and other modalities of healing.
Curious and eager to learn, I keep my inquisitiveness alive by reading, traveling, exploring cultures and engaging in diverse conversations. I am blogger, storyteller, wanderer at heart!
