About me :
I am Purnima Aiyar, an advertising professional turned fitness instructor. For many years, I was on a search for a job that allowed me to express my deepest intentions and help me make a difference to someone's life. And I am glad, I finally found it.
I have worked in the areas of operations, marketing and advertising. A change of career happened in 2011 when my husband and I decided to take a sabbatical from work and backpack around India. Something not heard of in our family. But that's a story for another day 🙂
So as part of the sabbatical, I spent a month in Mysore learning Yoga. While yoga had been part of my life, I had not considered taking it seriously. That changed soon after. I went on to do my Yoga TTC at Sivananda Ashram, Trivandrum, Kerala. I also got certified to teach Aerobics and Kick-started my new career as a Group Fitness Instructor at Dinaz's Fitness Studio in Hyderabad. Soon I decided to go solo and have worked independently since then.
I went on to get certified in Pilates and Zumba. I also got a professional certification from the American Council on Exercise in Group Fitness, and have recently completed the specialist course in Functional Movement from ACE. I love learning and have taken innumerable courses in Nutrition, Anatomy, Physiology, Exercise Science, Mindfulness and Meditation. And I know this learning will never stop.
Currently, I run a holistic wellness program specially designed for women, which is a combination of Breathwork, Movement and conscious living practices. The sessions are run virtually on Zoom. If you would like to enroll for classes, then do reach out via my Insta handle @holisticwellnesswithpurnima to know more 🙂
I love my work and the daily opportunity to positively influence lives ❤️
