Born in a Hindu Brahmin family in Northeast India, Tapashi was introduced to asanas very early by her father, and the wisdom of ancient Hindu philosophies by her mother. Such ancestral wisdom has brought her a deep understanding of the subtleties of oriental philosophy and the connections between body, mind and spirit.
Fascinated by ancient healing techniques, she is passionate about re-introducing this wisdom to the contemporary world. Tapashi teaches meditation, mantra chanting and asanas. Her style of teaching is a blend of traditional hatha yoga with tai-chi influences.
She believes that 'Yoga' cannot be taught, it can only be experienced, and her classes aim to make this experience accessible to the modern body-mind.
