Rod completed his yoga training in the UK in 1997 and has been teaching yoga full time for 20 years. Soon after Rod completed his training, he met Srijana at her family’s yoga center in Nepal, Holistic Yoga Ashrama in Kathmandu, and in 2013 they established the Holistic Yoga Centre in Ipswich. The centre focuses on Hatha cum Raja Yoga, or “Yoga as a way of life,” incorporating all aspects of yoga within their teachings. 
Born and trained in Nepal, Srijana has a deep yoga and meditation practice that is rooted in multiple generations of family yoga practice. Srijana also is trained in Reiki and various natural therapeutic techniques, including Nepali head massage and facials.
