Batool Merali is an Ayurvedic Practitioner, Yoga Teacher, Yoga
Health Coach, and she also helps her husband run a hotel business.
Amid all this work, she found time to write and publish her first
book in 2017.
Batool has dug deep into her ancestral heritage and has drawn on

true to her vision despite technical and creative challenges, and
bring her vision to life.

Where do you want to go? What are your goals? So many of us don’t

to achieve it, you can create a vision board for

nature, we need friends, we need community, and we need our planet.
But we don’t need much more: we don’t need the material things we
think we need to be happy.

Ayurvedic daily habits in place, you can create further

nothing competitive about it. You just have to be creative and
teach it in your own style. This brings your experience and point
of reference into your course.
