Kriti Karki is the owner and lead teacher of Mandala Retreat Resort. Her story of dedication and love for yoga and how she came to this field is truly inspiring. As a five-year-old girl, Kriti became ill with very serious asthma – an illness to which her grandparents eventually died. Kriti’s father, Dr. SB Karki decided to teach her yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises and started her on a healthy yogic food routine. Dr. SB Karki specializes in Naturopathy and is a great yogic master of Nepal.
With all the efforts and determination of both Kriti and her father, she started recovering at the age of 10. Yoga not only saved her life but she eventually fell in love with it and it became her daily routine. At the age of 14, she was sent to a Yoga Ashram in India where she spent 2 years of her life doing yoga sadhana (practice). She also went to yoga university where she achieved all the knowledge and skills to lead a yogic life. She believes in both scientific and spiritual yoga practices as she has experience in both.
