We  offers a holistic approach to wellbeing based on yogic practice and approach resonates with the  word 'Samagra' (Sanskrit), which means whole, integrated, and inclusive. Yoga is more than the physical movement of reaching the asana. It is a spiritual, transformation, and emotional journey for healing, growth from adversity with added strength and wisdom to move forward. 

We aim to make yoga accessible and inclusive as well as interested in individual and collective well-being of community  by offering yoga and its healing modalities to support mental and physical health to anyone who might like to try this approach may benefit.

The lowercase ‘b’ is intentional as it represents that we are whole.

Testimonials 

Hear from people who have benefited from my services

"Ashwini at Breathe for Transformation offered our Friends in Need group a wonderful session called 'Connecting the Body with Breath'.  Friends in Need is a peer support group for those experiencing mental health issues.. Ashwini was fantastic. She offered us a 1 hour and half interactive and practical session of how we can connect our bodies with breath.. Ashwini kept in mind the different levels of mobility in the group and catered the session to this, so members were able to sit, stand and stretch in ways that felt comfortable with them. Thank you Ashwini - we look forward to working with you again in the future. Highly recommend!
