As you get to know my story through my classes, workshops, storytelling sessions or my writings, you might find many fragments of my journey relatable and perhaps give you 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, and maintain discipline even as he traveled across the world. However, my own journey began many years ago, in an effort to find mental and physical well-being, while trying to find a manageable work-life balance. With the loss of my mother in 2012, the pressures of work as a biologist & researcher and my intention to raise my boys with perfection, the negative effects of stress consumed me. Physically, I experienced weight gain, digestive and sleep issues and mentally, I was distracted and restless.
Physical, mental and emotional wellness requires constant self-reflection. With passing time, it dawned on me that balance in life requires a shift in perceptions about life. This is when yoga presented itself! The change in my attitude was not easy. It demanded self-discipline, guidance from knowledgeable teachers and my willingness to move the needle to a positive mindset. Eventually, it became a habit to pay attention to life happening in "the present moment. "
Yoga soon became my refuge, offering physical, emotional and mental strength. Since then, understanding yoga and it's ancient teachings has helped me grow both in my yoga practice and personal life. As my foundation in yoga is deepening, new doors have opened. 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 and an artist!
