Rashmi is transformational Yoga, holistic healing, health and wellness


Her passion is alleviation of human suffering and creation of a happy &

healthy society. She is 500 Level trained and certified with expertise in

Transformational Yoga and Holistic healing. Blessed with an ingrained

inclination towards fitness and wellness, she has always been driven by

the deep-rooted desire to give back to society by helping everyone she

possibly can. Transformational Yoga is an integral approach to physical

health, emotional balance, mental clarity and spiritual well-being – and

offers the tools needed to make a tangible positive difference in

everyday life.

She did her certification in 2010 and started this journey by taking

Transformational Yoga classes for family, friends and their kids. The

gratification she got from observing a substantial improvement in the

overall health and well-being of her family and friends in a very short

period of time gave her the required . impetus and affirmation to look at

doing this professionally. Faced with the dilemma of making a decision

that essentially boiled down to a toss-up between her successful

corporate career and a career in Health & Wellness, she chose her true

calling over her Corporate career.

Her students are her primary motivation – especially when she

observes that Yoga & Holistic healing are helping her students with a

multitude of benefits including getting fit, losing weight, getting rid of

health issues & being healthy, happy and focused. The best part here is

that there is no medication involved – it is all about eating “Real Food”

and “Eating Right”, predicated on the following Principles: The Healing

Power of Nature. Do No Harm.Eat Right and Exercise. Be Your Own

Doctor. Prevention. Treat the Cause.

Treat the Whole Person.

Rashhmi has trained contestants of South East Beauty Pageant 2019.
