About Mona and Manish
For as long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed everything about tea. In 2015 my deeper instincts led me to begin my journey into the world of tea. I have completed the World Tea Expo Boot Camp in 2015. I’m a Certified Tea Sommelier from International Tea Masters Association (ITMA), and I have also completed Tea Sommelier program with James Norwood Pratt at the Los Angeles Tea Festival. In 2016 I started my tea business, Purnamm.
I am also a certifiec Youg Instructor with ayoga Allinace.
I have been practicing and sharing mindfulness for the past 15 years. My curiosity to understand the wandering mind led mw to meet my first meditation teacher in India at the age of 20. I have completed a year-long mindfulness training program from the University of California – Los Angeles. I have completed Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction training from the University of California Irvine and Mindfulness Teacher Training Program from Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California.
