Born in a Hindu family amidst the serene valleys and rolling hills of far Northeast India, Tapashi was introduced to asanas very early in her life by her father, while her mother passed on the wisdom of ancient Hindu philosophies, and the subtle meanings of Sanskrit shlokas and mantras. In course of time, she took to meditation. She later followed a TTC in traditional Hatha yoga at Yoga Vidya Gurukul – a classical Indian Ashram, and has since followed numerous workshops and trainings to deepen her understanding and practice.

Tapashi offers regular Yoga classes as well as sessions of Mantra chanting & meditation in Goa, where she lives during the winter. She brings the wisdom of her ancestors into her classes in a way that is accesible to the modern body and mind.
