Biography: Bianca Badrinath began learning about Indian philosophy through her parents at a very young age. Growing up, her home life was filled with regular discussions of scripture, and chanting in Sanskrit. She always had an interest in yoga, but it wasn’t until early adulthood that she began to deepen her practice. While attending graduate school for her master’s degree in Public Health, she became disillusioned by the state of healthcare and lack of focus on overall wellness and integration of alternative methods for health improvement. As a result, she began exploring yoga as a means for overall wellness. She eventually discovered Ashtanga Yoga in 2013 and fell in love with the challenge and discipline of the practice. In 2014, she completed her teacher training to share her passion for yoga with others. Her goal is to build a career that melds her background in healthcare with yoga, and spirituality. She is a student of Jorgen Christiansson at Omkar108.
