She trusts in the power of deep breathing – just take a pause, accept your place in the universe and then proceed!
Her forte is vinyasa creation; yogalates, and acceptance through awareness of body, mind, and life! Her sessions mainly focus on spiritual flexibility; balance, core engagement and body strength.

3. Anshu Khanna: Founder Of Yoga with Anshu
Due to a medical condition in 2010, Anshu sought alternate healing therapies and finally found what she was looking for in the age-old Indian discipline of Yoga which then helped her condition immensely.
Seeing the tremendous benefits yoga gave her, she got determined to share her knowledge and spread the practice of yoga with anybody else in need. Thus drawn towards this mission, she armed herself with an E-RYT 500 certification and today enjoys teaching hatha yoga, vinyasa, therapeutic yoga and pilates at her own studio Yoga with Anshu. Her style of yoga is accessible yet challenging, focusing on alignments and awareness.
4. Garima Gulati
Garima is a young Indian yogini. Her first teacher training was in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga under Guru Mahesh Chandra and then after a year, her second teacher training was in multi-style yoga in Goa.
Then, she went further with her studies and learned and taught Hatha, Vinyasa and restorative yoga in California, USA. Her intention as a teacher is to help students realize their own inner strength. Her classes are fun, innovative and inspiring. She loves to incorporate her dance training in her meditation and Vinyasa flow classes.
