Ritu completed her Advanced Masters in Occupational Therapy from in 1993 and has since been working with seniors and adults at many different local hospitals and Nursing homes. She was exposed to Yoga at an early age in India and became a Certified Yoga teacher in 2009 which influenced her life dramatically. Developing a daily personal practice came naturally and after some introspection, she knew she had to combine OT and Yoga. She has since taught Yoga to private clients and at Whittier Rehab to many people with different conditions including stroke, MS, and Fibromyalgia. Yoga Therapy is her passion; she loves to be able to help people with typical shoulder, neck, hip, knee, spinal and other injuries by combining her knowledge of yoga and 20 years of experience as an OT. She is a published writer and likes to blog regularly on topics related to yoga. Her humble goal is to offer gentle Yoga to those who need it the most as a form of therapy or Yoga-chikitsa.
