Theshini started practicing yoga in her early 20’s in South Africa. After emigrating to Canada, she continued to seek instruction in the different communities that she lived. Once she settled in Rossland, Theshini sustained a ski injury and resorted to her knowledge of yoga as a rehabilitative tool. This led to her “sharing the knowledge of yoga” with friends upon their request and so she began teaching!

Although her influences are mainly from the Iyengar tradition, she has explored other styles to deepen her practice and to evolve as a teacher. Her teaching style is eclectic with a strong emphasis on alignment as it provides a foundation for all styles of yoga. Theshini incorporates pranayama and meditation in her classes.

Theshini is a Fiber Artist and a yoga teacher. Both are equally creative processes for her. She is constantly challenged and inspired by her students and grateful to have an opportunity to share that process with them.
