Transforming The World, One Breath At A Time" sums it up for Radhika Vachani, a published author, an authority on yoga, Positive Wellbeing, and the Founder of the Institute of Inner Wellbeing & Excellence. Radhika is dedicated to enhancing human wellbeing and excellence globally, incorporating the learnings and wisdom of her 23-year personal journey and the daily practice of Iyengar yoga, meditation, and self-awareness into her work."Our human needs have evolved significantly, and with it, the concept of wellbeing is changing rapidly. We have an inherent need to lead purposeful lives and to engage in meaningful work. However, we live in a challenging environment fraught with volatility, uncertainty, and change, often causing immense stress and anxiety. We all need support to thrive." The Institute reflects the dedication, depth of experience, and practices that form the foundation of all the work conducted in human wellbeing and organizational excellence. She is also a published author, "Just Breathe, the most powerful tool for self-transformation." In this book, she addresses the fundamental question - "how do we find peace, permanence, and certainty in a world that is, by its very nature, volatile, impermanent, and uncertain?" Just Breathe reflects the wisdom of the Yoga Sutras and the life practice of yoga that is a fundamental aspect of this ancient practice. Soon to be published is her second book. She co-founded Blue Chip Telecom, Inc. in Silicon Valley in 1997, which she exited and returned to India. In 2010, she also founded the Yogacara Institute, holistic health and wellness organization. Radhika is a frequent speaker at conferences, leadership forums, and academic institutions. Radhika lives and works between the US and India.
Just Breathe is a brilliant book!
It goes well beyond the physical practice of yoga asana to reveal the more profound wisdom and life practice of the Patanjali Yoga Sutras. Just Breathe not only helps you expand the love and understanding of yoga, one of India's most significant contributions to humanity, but it inspires you to live life with skill and fullness, despite the impermanence, uncertainty, and challenges we are all confronted with.

Inspired by her 23-year journey with Iyengar yoga, self-awareness and meditation, Radhika authored "Just Breathe," published by Tata Westland in 2017.
The book is based on the ancient text of the Yoga Sutras and shows us how to skillfully manoeuver this complex rollercoaster called, 'Life,’ despite the impermanence, uncertainty, and volatility we are all faced with, all centered around one central point, your breath. ”
The journey has been fantastic!
I spent most of my career as COO of a top multinational company. What I have experienced is a transformation in my physical and mental wellbeing. My mind is more alert and calm. I have developed better judgment, become more discriminating, have greater confidence, and am quite happy to accept the uncertainty and impermanence of life.

My growth has been a tremendous challenge, as well as a fantastic journey!
Radhika and the entire team supported both my inner and physical growth with immense dedication. Each session was a welcoming, highly supportive and open environment of learning and sharing. I particularly enjoyed being trained through multiple techniques. I continue on the path of yoga, dedicated to my personal self-development and immense growth.
