Rashmi Born and raised in a small town in Meghalaya, she only came to learn of yoga’s existence when she was a late teenager. She practiced yoga for the first ever time when she was in her 20s. But after eight years of two corporate jobs she finally took the leap to dive deeper and become a full-time yoga student and practitioner.
Today, she never gives up on a chance to say ‘yoga has changed my life’. She is always amazed by how ‘the breath’, which is within us from the second we are born, is so remarkable that it can change the whole game of one’s existence. And hence, she has chosen to focus along the path of breathing exercises.
In her yoga journey she has discovered ways to find mental clarity, emotional balance, and physical strength, with the help of breath, and now she wants to help others discover the same (or something else more fitting) for themselves.
After years of struggling with the negatives of conditioning and its serious after effects she says she has now truly understood that she doesn’t need to chase anything or anyone to make her life complete. Life is right here and right now in this moment. To live a complete and full life of freedom is to breathe with your whole being, stretch till your capacity, and believe in your positive intentions.
“Peace just finds a way to find you when you give your best.”
