About Sutra Yoga
Sutra® weaves together threads of ancient traditions and modern practices connecting the Body, the Soul and the Community.
Based on the Vedic texts underpinning the practice of Yoga: समाधी (Contemplation), साधना (Practice), विभूति (Accomplishments) and कैवल्य (Absoluteness). Sutra® creates harmonious, ecological experiences curated by multi-disciplinary practitioners; complementing yoga with nutrition, mindfulness, strength training, outdoors and cultural experiences.
Yoga and complementary experiences are extended to social causes leading to enriching outcomes both for the individual and the community in partnership with a developmental humanitarian NGO Maitri India.
I like fitness, art, travel, zen mode and in a parallel universe, business strategy and technology.
Born in India, I started yoga at Sivananda, New Delhi in 2001 when I learnt Hatha yoga basics, and experienced the tranquility of feeling grounded with their Sanskrit prayers. Starting 2003, my 15 year global corporate career enabled me to explore and expand my passions living in different cities across Asia, UK, Europe, and US. It culminated in 200-hours Vinyasa teacher training at Yogaworks, New York in 2019.
Passionate and disciplined about fitness, I am also an active practitioner of the martial art of Muay Thai. I was initiated into Muay Thai in Delhi in 2008 and since then have pursued Kickboxing as my full-body workout. I love the outdoors, and light running as well as hiking; my favorite so far has been backcountry camping with the bears in Alaska!
With great energy to share my passions and the need to cope with repetitive health issues, I decided to unite my personal and professional spaces to set up Sutra®in 2020.
I look forward to learning more along the way as I start this journey with you all.
