Mirra had watched her father practice Yoga and Meditation as she was growing up. She always tried to emulate her father, and hence the love for Yoga also began from there. It was further rejuvenated when she took a class at Sadhana Sangama, in old Bangalore, when she was 12. After Sadhana Sangama, her love for yoga was enhanced and it became a part of her. Mirra chose to dance to the tune of life, and in 2002, was part of Attakalari centre as a choreographer and is trained in Contemporary Dance, Kalaripayattu and Yoga. She performed extensively, in many parts of Europe and Asia. She turned to teaching Yoga in 2014. Her style is Hata Yoga, and in her classes she likes to take a balanced approach where all the parts of the body are holistically tended to. “When I say body, it means physical, vital, mental and spiritual. Hence I like to take classes which have Asanas, Pranayama and Meditation, unless it is meant to be a concentrated physical session.” Mirra loves the quietness one can find in nature.
“Since I grew up watching and doing yoga, it’s become a way of life. Not a big hype about it nor can I live without it. Its just another part of me.”
