More about Rujuta

Born in a typical middle-class Maharashtrian family, Rujuta imbibed the principles of 'continuous learning' and 'pursuit of excellence in your field' by default and not from a self-help book. After her graduation, as she contemplated how to pursue her passion further, luckily the Mumbai University started a post-graduation program called 'Sports science and Nutrition' in collaboration with IIT, Mumbai. And she was on her way.

Her entire family practiced yoga as a way of life, very matter-of-factly, and this was a big influence on her. She decided to further her understanding and studied Yoga and Vedanta along with Ayurved from Sivananda Yog Vedanta forest academy. She basically applied what she learned about nutrition and exercise science to the Indian way of life in a sensible and practical way.

She continues to learn, it's never ending she says...
