Originally from India, Vinita moved to the United States in 1995.
Being a trailing spouse for the last 27 years, their corporate adventures took them across 5 different states where she found her lifelong circle of friends and community while teaching Yoga and Pilates at different studios and gyms over the years.
She studied Yoga in India at the world-famous Iyengar Institute and has been teaching Yoga for the last 29 years.
She was introduced to Pilates mat in 1999 at a DCAC fitness conference in Washington DC where she fell in love with Pilates, especially discovering how her yoga and Pilates practice combined complimented each other.
Her previous move before settling in Asheville took her to Minneapolis where her supervisor at the YMCA encouraged her to get the Pilates Reformer certification in 2003 and she was hooked!
Vinita got her level 2 reformer and Cadillac certification right after and has not looked back since!
Over the years she has also been trained in addition to traditional Iyengar yoga using props and ropes in Vinyasa Flow, Restorative yoga, Yoga Ball, Yoga Sculpt, and Suspended Hammock-Aerial Yoga, but her true passion is in teaching Vinyasa Flow, Pilates Mat, and Pilates Reformer classes.
She offers many modifications in her class to safely build your daily practice while keeping everyone safe and challenged.
