Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
Parna is a dedicated yoga instructor who has been practicing yoga and meditation since childhood. She believes that we all have the power to mold our future into something worth living. Her desire to grow led her to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Science (Biology) and a Master’s degree in Sociology. In 2010, she further enhanced her knowledge by taking an “Advanced Anatomy and Physiology” course, which helped her understand the intersection between the study of life, society, and yoga.
Parna strives to create an anatomically and emotionally safe atmosphere where all students find joy and peace. She believes that yoga teaches us that life is about more than being perfect or competitive. Life is truly about working towards our goals while accepting our true selves and allowing them to blossom.
