Manju's practice is grounded in a desire for equity, justice, emotional and mental well-being. She brings her spirit of play, body positivity and radical self-love to classes.
Manju invites you to consider yoga as a tool to recharge, resist and rebel.
Born in India to a yoga teacher mother, Manju came to her yoga practice fashionably late. Although she attended intensive yoga classes as a child and teenager at the oldest yoga institute in India, it was not exactly love at first sight. Manju has a long, amusing, and often fraught relationship with yoga. She stumbled into her first Kundalini class in the United States and was hooked. Manju practices and teaches at Lighthouse Yoga.
Manju completed her yoga teacher training with aspiring teachers from across the planet. Being one of three Americans within a global training program with Bangladeshi, Egyptian, Italian, Lebanese, Nicaraguan, Palestinian, Saudi Arabian, and South African colleagues made her scrutinize her own practice through a social justice lens.
