Namita Kulkarni

Namita Kulkarni is a Yoga teacher, traveler and writer from India. She sees teaching as a way of sharing of her own practice. Her Yoga journey began at age 12 in school, but the turning point was a home practice Yoga book that found her at age 17 at the Swami Vivekananda Rock Memorial in Kanyakumari (India's southernmost point).

Leaving behind her law degree and gold medal, she chose to pursue her calling in Yoga. Her formal Yoga training began at the oldest Yoga schools in India and continued with internationally acclaimed Yoga teachers. Always looking to deepen her knowledge and practice, she acquired ten Yoga certifications in Hatha, Vinyasa, Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga over the years, including 610 hours of Yoga Alliance certified training.

Her biggest lessons, she believes, come from self-awareness on and off the mat, and the most ‘advanced’ Yoga to her is a calm mind and a joyful spirit. Her go-to quote is Rumi's 'Work in the invisible world at least as hard as you do in the visible.' Creativity and gratitude are her favorite superpowers. She travels solo every year to explore new corners of the world and is grateful to Yoga for the internal explorations it propels her into. She writes about her inner and outer expeditions on her website Twitter: @namitakulkarni and Instagram: @namita_nefarious
