About Me

My Story

Kalpana's journey and curiosity about the soul started at an early age. As a child she felt she carried inner guidance but wasn't sure what it meant and where it came from. She maintained an interest in eastern (particularly Indian) philosophies, at the same time pursuing study and a career in software engineering. 


After having her first child, Kalpana took extra time off work to complete her Diploma of Yoga Teaching - a course she took to further enhance her enjoyment of yoga in particular the poses. She felt rejuvenated after a yoga class. What started off as a physical journey turned into quiet an spiritual one. She found all her answers in the Yogic philosophy. From there Kalpana left her corporate career to set up Sankalpa Mind Body and Soul with courses on Udemy (now over 4000 students). 


Soon after the birth of her second child, Kalpana presented at the Mind Body and Spirit festivals in Melbourne and Sydney, wrote her first book, started her own podcast, and established Sankalpa Kids.

Kalpana is currently studying to be a counsellor. Supporting others (especially children) is her life calling.


A passion that she attributes to her two beautiful soulful kids. They are her guiding light who have bought her to this path and connected her to her life purpose!
