Asha’s Yoga journey began many years ago in Hyderabad, India under the guidance of her Guru Sri Venkateswara Rao who taught her in the most meaningful and simple way and told her, “Yoga is for everyone, anyone who has the desire to improve their physical, mental and emotional health can practice Yoga irrespective of their life’s challenges.” She continues to study and learn from many Saints and gurus from India and in Asha’s own words she says, “Teaching and helping people through Yoga has been my reward.”
