Her guru, Prem Sadasivananda, hails from New York and is a direct disciple of Swami Vishnudevananda. It was he who endowed her with her spiritual name, Vijaya, which means “almighty” or “victory”. Her Asana classes were taught by Sri Mani Raman Chaitanya, the head of the Sivananda Centre in New Dehli.

After attaining her certification to teach, she established a new trend of Skype Yoga, which allows to teach students worldwide, erasing boundaries of time and distance. She has also stayed on the map conducting multiple workshops and retreats in both Asia and Europe.
