Priyanka has been practicing Sivanandas’ Hatha Yoga since she was 17.
She spent months in ashrams teaching and assisting, yet wanted to deepen her awareness and understanding of the breath and embarked on a journey of Vipassana meditation.
The two different approaches overlapped to strengthen her yoga practice – which led to her to Ashtanga Yoga at the Pattabhi Jois Institute.
She has continued to explore other forms such as Acro Yoga, Kundalini, Jivamukti, Anusara, Partner and Yin Yoga.
The different styles have served to enrich her teaching abilities since she teaches a traditional form of personalized yoga; catering to expats, diplomats and ambassadors’ wives.
This requires her to be well versed in all the forms of yoga, that are being offered in the 21st century and allows her to blend the traditional with the new wave that has taken the world by storm…

“What if our religion was each other. If our practice was our life. If prayer, our words. What if the temple was the Earth If forests were our church. If holy water —the rivers, lakes, and oceans. What if meditation was our relationships. If the teacher was life. If wisdom was self-knowledge. If love was the center of our being.” ~ Ganga White”
Aside from yoga, i am deeply passionate about animals, dancing and traveling.
