Passionate about food and fitness, I believe in following my heart.
Born in a Marwari family in Assam, Munmun Ganeriwal went to MIT, Pune, to study engineering. While studying there, she worked part-time as a fitness trainer at one of Pune’s most reputed gyms and juggled her studies while learning on the job. Having discovered this as the exact pursuit that resonates with her heart and mind, what happened next was simply logical: turning her passion into her profession. Yes, despite conventional wisdom and social aspirations, taking the plunge and following her heart instead of chasing a coveted career as an engineer led her to choose learning and pursue excellence in nutrition science and exercise physiology. And there’s been no looking back ever since.
Yoga from traditional schools, is something she dedicated herself to learning and continues to do so, besides staying up to date with developments and new research in the field of nutrition and exercise science. Gradually along with Yoga, she developed a keen interest in Vedanta philosophy, Breathing and Meditation techniques. Her holistic philosophy on food and wellness is deeply rooted on our ancient wisdom, yet it is action-oriented to suit the needs and requirements of the people of today.
