Nirala is a passionate yoga practitioner, student of Vedanta, and drinker of many teas. She grew up in an Indian household but wanted to learn more about the culture and its practices. Nirala’s journey to understand her cutlural roots began in India, in 2011. She immersed herself in a gurukulam, the traditional ashram-based way of learning, at a school recognized as the Leading Yoga Institution by the AYUSH (Yoga and Ayurveda) ministry of the Government of India. This experience set Nirala on the path of life-long study, returning to India ever so often at select schools, and participating in various philosophy courses and discussions. She learns from every aspect of life, including her classes, courses, and retreats.
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.
