Ramila was initially recommended to restart her ritual of yoga in 1998 by the Head of Physio Therapy. Yoga practice has always given Ramila more than physical well being, it’s also given mental serenity and joy.  In addition it was working at a deeper level of consciousness that things started shifting for her.

Regular meditation has taught her a valuable skill to live a balanced life.
