Instructor of: Nirmal Yoga
Profile: Through training of classic ballet in my childhood and synchronized swimming as a college student, I came to know that physical experience has a great influence on mind and spirit. Although yoga had been my long time wish, I could not find a right place until I came to Nirmal Yoga. Through teachings of yoga and Ayurveda by Dr. Nirmal along with practices, I came to realize the importance of facing yourself not from outside but into inside, listen to what your heart and soul telling you. 'Since I started yoga, I am far from doctors and medicines. Hoping to share this great knowledge and experience of yoga and Ayurveda that uplift you to the state of bliss'
