Radhika Khanna's latest creation

radhika khanna
Super proud of my younger sister Radhika Khanna for creating an amazing book "POSE". A simple way to balancing body-mind-soul through simple yoga for busy people.
Radhika Khanna is a fashion designer and entrepreneur. Born and raised in India, Radhika moved to the U.S. to study at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in New York after receiving a Masters Degree in English Lit in her birth land. While working in the fashion industry in New York, she was diagnosed with lupus. The disease decimated her internal organs and her blood cells. Radhika was forced to abandon her dreams and a luxurious lifestyle to try and cure herself. There is no cure for Lupus. She moved to a yoga ranch, then back to India to practice yoga. She worked hard to learn the nuances of yoga while still fighting her illness. She became a certified yoga instructor in Canada. She has practiced all kinds of yoga techniques and learned from gurus in India. She believes in living a fulfilling life and in following your dreams, which cannot be achieved if you ignore your body and health. She has taught modern and ancient yoga techniques to students all over the world. Radhika is a motivational speaker of much renown, an expert on psychosomatic diseases and positive thinking. Her devout yoga practice put her disease in remission. She now has a successful fashion business and lives in Manhattan. She never forgets to practice yoga, believing it's a very personal practice. Yoga is not a flexibility competition, but the connection of your mind with your body. This book helps readers live healthily in conjunction with an ambitious, busy modern lifestyle. It has been culled from Radhika Khanna's notes, made while attending yoga ashrams all over the world. While preparing to return to Manhattan, these yoga techniques helped her become a healthy, successful businesswoman. Yoga is within us. A healthy body is a healthy mind, and a healthy mind requires a happy heart.
