Beyond Asanas: Changing Perceptions About Yoga

Pragya Bhatt and Joel Koechelin


Pragya Bhatt is an international yoga teacher and writer. She was born in Delhi and grew up in different countries due to her father's work as a diplomat in the Indian Foreign Services. Her first book "Beyond Asanas: The Myths and Legends Behind Yogic Postures" was published in 2019 by Penguin. 

Pragya worked as a software engineer for companies such as Infosys and Accenture, before hanging up her business suit to immerse herself full time into the practice of yoga. She is currently pursuing a master’s in yogic studies. 

Pragya lives and works in Bangalore, but is frequently found elsewhere because of a penchant for spontaneous travel. She regularly contributes to newspapers and periodicals and is a compulsive blogger and diarist.
