KAVALJEET KAUR, 25, Yoga expert
Youthful dynamism coexists with the ancient philosophy of yoga in 25 year-old Kavaljeet Kaur. A guest lecturer at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, Kaur is currently involved in ‘My Yoga Project’, teaching yoga to the underprivileged in collaboration with a local NGO, Yuvsatta. In 2010, Kaur launched Yog cafe, a nomadic yoga studio wherein she uses established dance studios across cities to hold yoga classes. This saves on rent. “Customers end up paying less and it's a win-win situation for all.” Yog Café has studios in Chandigarh, Mumbai and Rishikesh and also conducts workshops at Dell, APG Cement, Maple Bear, the Government College for Girls, SD College and Nari Niketan, Chandigarh.
SOUL CURRY “The very ritual of rolling the mat and doing asanas connects me with my inner self,” says Kaur. “Having experienced balance in my life through yoga, I am now sharing it with others.” The yoga entrepreneur received her training from Kaivalyadham (Lonavala), The Yoga Institute, Santacruz (Mumbai) and Rishikesh.
