Born in the rich cultural tapestry of India, Apurva has always been surrounded by the ancient philosophies and practices that have made the subcontinent a beacon for spiritual seekers. With a practice spanning over 13 years, Apurva's immersion into yoga and meditation has been profound, illuminating the spaces beyond mere physical postures. It's a deep belief of hers that yoga transcends the asanas; it is, in essence, a heartfelt journey home. A journey where the clamor of the outside world fades, and all senses are lovingly drawn inward. Since relocating to Seattle in 2017, Apurva has felt an innate calling to share this timeless wisdom with her new community. The bustling urban life of Seattle, while offering countless modern conveniences, also presents unique challenges to the mind and soul. It's in this backdrop that Apurva's teachings become even more relevant. Her sessions are not just about attaining flexibility of the body but also achieving malleability of the mind. In a world saturated with information yet starved for wisdom, Apurva’s intention remains clear: to make meditation and mindfulness easy and accessible for all. Regardless of where you come from or where you're headed, Apurva invites you to pause, breathe, and embark on this transformative journey within.
