Nirala is a passionate yoga practitioner, student of Vedanta, and drinker of many teas. She grew up in an Indian household and wanted to learn the depths of the culture and its practices. The journey to explore her cultural roots began in 2011 when she immersed herself in a gurukulam, the traditional ashram-based way of learning, at a school recognized as the leading yoga institution by the Ministry of AYUSH (Yoga and Ayurveda), Government of India. This experience set her on the path of life-long study, returning to India ever so often at select schools, and participating in various philosophy courses and discussions.
In addition to guiding yoga classes, Nirala creates a clean line of all-natural skin care products, selling exclusively online and through local health stores. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in environmental studies and just to make sure she remains completely unemployable, also attained a degree in political science from the University of Waterloo.
