Neelu Shruti is a prenatal/ postnatal yoga teacher, birth doula and breastfeeding counselor based in New York City. She is the owner of Love Child, a community that offers yoga, doula services and prenatal and new parent support.
Neelu was fortunate to be introduced to yoga at a young age while attending Rishi Valley, a boarding school in India founded by the philosopher J. Krishnamurti. During her time at architecture school in Austin, Texas, yoga helped her maintain balance. Since moving to New York in 2008, her yoga practice has deepened (and played a key role in keeping her sane as she pursued her day job as an architect), and she has grown more appreciative of the vast benefits of a regular yoga practice.
As a doula and yoga teacher she is especially passionate to support pregnant women through a conscious, nurturing and strengthening yoga practice. She believes in empowering women with information about their choices and giving them the tools to develop trust in their own bodies.
