I am one of the founders and owners of Yoga Yoga in Austin, Texas where we currently have 5 studios and a spa. The first yoga that I practiced was Kundalini Yoga when I was 15 in 1972. I came back to it in 1994 and it changed my life forever for the better. I had the grace to study with Yogi Bhajan directly and I look to Gurucharn Singh as a mentor and guide. I love to share the transformative power of this beautiful practice. My husband Mehtab and I enjoy teaching workshops and teacher training together, and we host Level 1 and Level 2 teacher training courses here in the Heart of Texas.
