Your Instructor

Kevala found yoga and meditation after suffering for years from trauma and complex PTSD. When conventional psychotherapy failed to bring relief, she turned to yoga and meditation for healing. She discovered that linking breath with movement helped to quiet her thoughts and release the trauma stored in her mind and body. This practice provided profound relief, not only on the mat but also in her daily life, bringing her a sense of peace she never thought possible. For Kevala, yoga is not just a practice; it is a state of being.

As a dedicated student of Yoga, Meditation, Prāṇāyāma, Chanting, and Yoga Philosophy, Kevala has immersed herself deeply in these ancient practices. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher, a Yoga Therapist in-training, and is currently pursuing a MS/Ph.D. program at Vivekananda Yoga University. Specializing in Yoga for Trauma Recovery and spiritual teachings, Kevala combines her extensive training with her personal experience to guide others on their healing journeys.

Kevala is now devoted to sharing the transformative power of yoga with others. As the founder and owner of The Mind-Body Connection Yoga Studio, she aims to make yoga accessible to everyone and shift the perspective of yoga in the US from a mere fitness regimen to a profound therapeutic experience, rooted in its ancient traditions.
