Founder

Aparna Mishra - Kathak guru, wellbeing & Conscience coach is the founder president of Kala Saadhna, where she imparts professional Kathak Training. She also coaches your conscience to create an inner balance through her innovation & experience. It’s her grandmother Smt. Rama Mishra's endless support and gurus wish, that in 2000, at a tender age but with a strong vision she laid the foundation of Kala saadhna to nurture and promote kathak. Later it became a training centre for all forms of Indian classical dance & music and was renamed as “Kalasaadhna – Indian art & Culture Centre” .

She began learning Kathak at the tender age of 3 under Late Pandit Viswanath Mishra, a celebrated guru and her great grandfather who hailed from Mithila and followed the 'parampara' of Benaras Gharana. Thereafter, she continued her Kathak training under Pandit Sant Lal Jha Sumanand, completing Nritya Bhaskar (Masters, Gold Medalist) from Pracheen Kala Kendra, Chandigarh. Aparna Mishra inspires the young generation by not just promoting Kathak under the “ Guru Shishya Parampara” form but also sow spirituality and cultivate a value system through this platform. Her continuous research on Vedic scriptures, Shastras and Shlokas, intensive knowledge and practice of Ayurveda- in depth knowledge in yoga and meditation and their interpretation through dance has added to her teaching and presentations method – which defines her signature style Natya Yoga - which is a non-existent form of any dance or yoga, but an engagement of all the five senses through movements, meditation and holistic chanting and healing process leading to a spiritual detox and purification- coaching your conscience which is the perfect interpreter of life.
