Mehera knows first hand the phenomenal power of yoga to heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It is her great honor to share these gifts of practice. Mehera, a mother of three promising yoginis, has an MFA in poetry, an MA in English literature, and a YTR from the Pranotthan School of Yoga through All That Matters. In her classes, she uses poetry to infuse the physical practice of yoga with the individual and collective stories of her students. She has studied reiki, flower remedies, nutrition, and is known to dabble in crystals. She also talks to angels (and they answer!). Since her first childhood trips to India, Eastern philosophy has resonated with Mehera, and it informs every aspect of her practice. Additionally, she is a huge fan of homemade peanut butter-oat-carob chip-coconut palm sugar cookies.
