Supriya is a 500hr RYT and Prenatal yoga teacher of Hatha yoga. Her journey with the ancient ways

began as a child while practising witch craft meditations and having a deep connection with nature.

She had always had an interest in movement and yoga asana for years prior to completing her first

teacher training at Earthwise Yoga in 2013. Her passion for teaching started in 2010 as an outdoor

instructor, and since then, her journey has been redirected toward the healing sciences of yoga,

ayurveda and organic food production.

food and herbs has been a hugely impactful reconnection for her. Understanding the health of our

for healing has been rekindled and she is evolving her ways as a teacher through her own

experiences. She is a dedicated student of yoga, ayurveda, womb health and permaculture.
