Our History

“Kundalini Yoga found me back in 2011. At the beginning of my soul’s call out for finding deeper meaning to my life, a more soulful existence, I had deep yearning to live more fully, like I was just surviving not thriving and  I knew this couldn’t be it, I knew there was more to life.

The first time I was in class, it felt like I was  coming home. It was like a big nurturing hug, the universe was giving me, I knew everything was going to be ok, I could do anything from my mat. I laughed, I cried,  I surrendered and that was it for me. I went deep into the practice, so deep I decided to master it for myself by doing the teacher training.

I never knew I was going to be a teacher let alone open a studio but I am not the doer, I show up to life and I am open to all the gifts and opportunities as they present themselves. And now here we are, with Sadhana Studios.

Daya Prakash and I met in 2017 at the Kundalini Yoga Festival with a yearning to build community, to heal, to elevate and to serve the people of Melbourne, right in the heart of St Kilda”
