Director, Founder & Spiritual Entrepreneur
Mother of three, with a 15-year career in branding, Nav is a certified Yoga Teacher and she has been practicing yoga since 2008.
“The more I practice yoga, the more I feel united, with myself and my world. It’s my journey of learning, to stay true to myself, trusting my instincts and leading with absolute authenticity. Having lived and practiced yoga in London, Geneva, Singapore and HongKong, I love to share this experience with others, so they too can discover their true nature. This love was the inception of Sattra yoga.”
Keeping it real - not everyone knows what a dosha, bandha or dhristi is.
Sometimes they really don’t care. What they want is an experience that opens their eyes to something that helps them feel great about themselves, to reach their fitness or spiritual goals. That doesn’t mean we don’t use traditional vedic philosophy, we just make sure we apply any ancient terms with a foundation of deep insights and express it in an accessible way.
Remaining composed and confident to gently peel back the layers of stress and life challenges, and reveal the true you. We practice yoga asana and mindful meditation to stay grounded to reality for optimal wellness.
Feed Our Home
Everytime you come to your mat with Sattra, we will plant 1 tree on your behalf. Trees are so important for our earth to stay healthy and nourished and this is why trees are so amazing.
The leaves of a tree absorb pollutant gases like carbon monoxide, ozone & nitrogen oxides and release oxygen for us to breathe.
Trees reduce risks of natural disasters like landslides and floods as their main role is to capture rainwater.
Trees are home to numerous species of mammals, insects, mosses and plants. These biodiversities flourish with trees.
The forestry industry is vast, providing fruits, nuts and berries for consumption. Sustainable tree farming for timber to build homes and to burn for cooking and heating.
Physiologically living amongst trees is a natural healer, helping to reduce anxiety, stress and to be connected with nature.
Trees help to keep the planet cooler to help avoid global warming.
