About me

Hi. My name is Karnit Gefen, but please call me Niti…or Narayani. It's a pleasure to meet you!

I am Mom to Lula and Guli, who remind me every day what love is.

Yoga teacher and caretaker. I practice yoga and teach others how to improve decision-making processes for a more balanced, calmer and better life. I nurture flexibility in thinking and creativity and, every day, take on a holistic approach combining the head and the emotional world of the heart and belly, recognizing the countless possibilities this integration opens up and the serenity it offers as a result. I believe in the healing power of love and the ability of everyone to love and be loved.
