The study and practice of Yoga keeps me questioning and experimenting on my way of being. The Yoga Student was created to share what I am learning through gathered knowledge and personal experience.

Besides my articles, you will also find a few contributed by other wellness professionals authored under ‘Contributor.TYS’. Each contributor’s name and contact details are always mentioned under their write-up to enable you to connect with them.
