Kusum hails from the beautiful garden city of Chandigarh. She Shifted to Nahar in 2011 and loves the place. She says Nahar is a self sufficient neighbourhood. It has everything available from super markets to schools and clubs. It also has beautiful landscaped Gardens.
Quitting her Corporate Job
Kusum wanted to do something different and decided to quit her corporate job where she was into PR.
She had 3 criteria for her new job.
1) It should suit her personality
2) It should not restrict her at a particular place.
3) It should Improve Lives.
One day while doing Yoga she felt the practise gave her inner peace and strength. She decided to join a teachers course at Yoga Institute Santacruz. She thought being a Yoga teacher will help her achieve all 3 objectives. The teachers course was tough, but she had grit and determination to make it through. She is grateful to the Yoga Institute at Santacruz. She gives Yoga Institute Santacruz credit for her positive attitude towards life.
