Our Story

Reena started teaching in March 2015, shortly after completing her initial Teacher Training Course. Her inspiration came about when she couldn’t find a local class similar to her preferred style and was also passionate about developing an inclusive community. Despite having a successful corporate career at management level, Reena went on to dedicate her time fully to the teaching and practice of Yoga.

Reena established a thriving yoga community In Loughborough for many years and now offers her teaching through Inner8 Wellbeing. The Inner8 concept was further developed with the support of local initiatives.

Reena’s journey started with Meditation many years ago, and was later encouraged to take up yoga by her uncle Kishore who lives in Boston, USA. She credits much of her inspiration, positive support and yogic discipline to “Kishore Mama”. Kishore has been practising yoga for more than 30 years, and is the embodiment of a true selfless yogi, serving the community and his extended family.

Growing up Reena loved to dance and completed her Diploma in Bharatnatyam, a South Indian Classical Dance. Reena performed on stage for many years, including prestigious venues: The Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Arena and The Royal Festival Hall in London. Her appreciation for Indian Dance has only grown since learning Bhakti Yoga.

As a passionate sports fan and participant, Reena has enjoyed introducing yoga to all the Premier League Football Referees based at St Georges Park (home of England’s National Football Team). It was a honour to work with this group for many years.

Reena has travelled extensively, staying in mindful communities and yoga ashrams worldwide. She completed her Advanced Teacher Training in the Sivananda Kutir, Himalayas, India.
