Varuna joined our Protiviti member firm in Kuwait in 2012 to help revamp their marketing and communications strategy. For Varuna, it was an exciting opportunity to build something new.
While she chased her passion for marketing by day, Varuna became more serious about another passion: teaching yoga. “It was a great platform for me to explore and nurture my skills as a teacher,” she says. “Teaching yoga gave me an opportunity to connect and bond with people across cultural diversities who came together for a common purpose.”
In 2014, Varuna returned to India and, combining her corporate know-how and love of yoga, decided to pursue a full-time career as a “yogipreneur,” developing and leading corporate holistic wellness programs in the Gurgaon area.
In honor of International Women’s Day last month, Varuna led a wellness workshop at Protiviti Gurgaon for her former colleagues. The session was packed with more than 50 participants and, Varuna says, “It was their enthusiasm and active participation which made the session extraordinarily special.”
