It was in San Francisco in 2008, that Nishara conducted her first Yoga class, at the Sivananda Ashram Centre. She was initially nervous, but “being an Indian, with the ‘exotic’ looks paid off.” While she used to go to the Gym and also do Aerobics, there was something missing. She used to work in Public relations, and soon realized that it was not really her calling. “A corporate job was not my cup of tea”. She started learning Yoga in 2005 and started teaching since 2008. She specializes in Hata and Sivananda. She has also completed her Advanced Teacher Training Course (ATTC) at the Sivananda Ashram at Neyyar Dam. Her shortness of breath and carpel tunnel syndrome are both in check with the regular practice of Yoga. She truly embodies the youthfulness of Yoga, as no one would believe her age, even if she told you.
“Yoga rocks!! Yoga is my life, my breath, my everything!!”
