What's your background?

I studied Psychotherapy and Hypnosis at Master's level in England and am certified in Mindfulness techniques developed at Oxford University. During the week I work in Malibu rehabs helping people recover from addiction and guide classes at LA meditation studios. British with Indian heritage I've experienced working in the East and the West. A Descendant of Sage Mandavya I come from an ancient lineage of Brahmin teachers who pass down meditation and knowledge of higher states of consciousness. Earlier on my life journey, I achieved critical acclaim as a lead actress in Bollywood and Europe becoming the most Googled name in India (2010). Now I'm dedicated to helping people dissolve stress so they can live happy and productive lives.

Corporate Mindfulness and Meditation

When mindfulness and meditation is taught correctly, stress and conflict reduce while creativity and productivity increase. If individuals say they can't meditate it's because they haven't been taught properly. I'm an expert at working with groups and returning them to calm.  I offer group sessions, individual sessions and also provide online tools. Contact me for my corporate packages.
