Parna is a dedicated teacher who began her practice of both yoga and meditation in her childhood. She believes that we all have the power to mold our future into something worth living. Her desire to grow led her to a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and a Master’s degree in Sociology. The intersection between the study of life, society, and Yoga was enhanced in 2010 by an "Advanced Anatomy and Physiology" course. The beautiful thing that yoga teaches us is 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. She strives to create an anatomically and emotionally safe atmosphere where all students find joy and peace. To that end, she completed the 200 Hour Power Yoga Training at Core Power Yoga in December 2014 and has since added Core Restore, HPF, Yoga Pilates, and HIIT Pilates to her repertoire. She recently added another 200 Hour Yoga Instructor course consisting of Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Kriyas, Chanting, Yoga Philosophy, and Teaching Methodology. This Yoga Instructor course had an emphasis on teaching patients with Diabetes Mellitus and was conducted by Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana - Houston. In 2020, she completed her 300 hrs. International Yoga TT from Bhakti Yogshala. Parna truly believes that the peace yoga can bring into any life is something that should be shared. She meets her students wherever they are and offers gentle encouragement when she sees opportunities to expand their practice. Parna is driven to share beauty and joy with others through yoga/meditation.
Now, Parna is a 500 hrs. Yoga teacher registered with Yoga Alliance and World Yoga Federation.
