She is a certified yoga teacher from The Patanjali Yoga Center in Khatmandu, Nepal since 1990 where she first began chanting in the yogic and hindu traditions.

At Mandala community joins together for classes, kirtan chanting, reiki training, spiritual book clubs, ayurvedic lunches, philosophy studies and so much more. Her personal yoga classes incorporate sanskrit chanting, essential oils and guidance from Ayurvedic daily wisdom into a more traditional vinyasa flow.
