Benaisha grew up in London, the eldest of three sisters. She studied PPE at Warwick University and began a career in Westminster, working as a Civil Servant first for the Competition and Markets Authority, and then at Department for Transport as Private Secretary to the transport minister. During this time, she began practicing yoga as a way of managing a stressful job and busy life. Finally in 2017, she decided to leave her job and travel to India to undertake Yoga Teacher Training in Goa. She ended up living in India for 2 years, exploring different spiritual traditions and starting a yoga and meditation school with her partner, Rishad. In 2020, they got married and moved back to London. Benaisha now works in local government and has opened a community Yoga Studio in North West London, as well as teaching various corporate and private students. She specialises in gentle, meditative, restorative practices and loves introducing beginners to the practice of Yoga.
