About Us

Vikara (विकार) is the sanskrit word for change or transformation. 

We produce one-of-a-kind fitness, yoga, and wellness events centered around the idea that we want to 'get fit, feel good, and have fun.' Whether single or multi-day format, our mission is to promote fun, participatory, lifestyle-changing events that nourish the mind, body, and soul.

If you weren't there, you'd wish you had been.

I began practicing yoga in 2012. For me, yoga began as a tool to manage my anxiety and heal from my traumas. I believed in what yoga had to offer, and as my love for yoga deepened, I was drawn to share the benefits of the practice with others.
Through my teaching, I aim to provide a safe and sacred space for my students to grow, both individually and as a community. I believe that when there's authenticity, a passion for learning, and space for humility, one's growth potential is infinite.
