Yoga Therapist, Inner Work Specialist
Apoorva used to work as a marketing executive in New York City and moved back to India in 2005 to pursue her passion for Yoga. She has trained and worked extensively in the tradition of Krisnamacharya for more than a decade now. She teaches yoga with the intention of helping people experience personal transformation and growth through simple practices. She has been deeply inspired by the profound impact asana (body movements), pranayama (simple breath practices) and dhyana (meditation) has had on her life and she endeavours to facilitate the same for others. She is committed to following the approach of Viniyoga, where the ancient tools of yoga are simplified and taught in today’s language and context.
In 2008, she fell ill and suffered with severe back pain, neck pain, and insomnia and made her way back to good health using yoga therapy and alternative healing systems. This experience led her to train and specialize in Yoga Therapy and use it as a complimentary healing tool to address health issues such as back pain, digestive problems, blood pressure, heart problems, depression, anxiety, thyroid, etc.
Over the years, she has done a wide range of work- including personalized classes, pranayama workshops, yoga philosophy courses, corporate training programs and conducting workshops and talks both in India and abroad.
Apoorva lives in Gurgaon with her husband and their beagle.
