Yoga Retreat in the Wild
Your Yoga Instructor
Joshna Ramakrishnan started yoga as a kid and grew with it as a teenager, mastering asana practice at a very young age led her to question and learn about the philosophy of yoga as a young adult. At the age of 21, after she finished her graduation as a computer engineer, life took a big turn for her as she started to question the existence and reality. She left the country for China to teach yoga and returned to India after a short stint to study more, she travelled far and wide in India from the Himalayas to Mysore to study with different masters of art to understand the essence of yoga.
