Reena is passionate about well-being in particular the practice of Meditation and how a short-sustained practice can significantly improve one’s mental health. From a young age, Reena understood the benefits of mindful practice after suffering from severe anxiety at the age of 18. She is no stranger to the feeling of losing a sense of control and not having the right techniques to manage stress. After years of searching, she found meditation as the only single thing that could bring her peace of mind and the ability to manage her thoughts positively. Since finding the practice of meditation, Reena has gone on to establish her own yoga and meditation community and more recently founded Inner8 which focuses on the well-being for leaders and managers.
Reena is also no stranger to Leadership and for many years had a successful career in Risk Management, working extremely hard to become a Manager herself. In 2014, Reena left her management post within a large well-known organisation to focus solely on well-being and teaching others what she had learnt for herself. During her holiday time she would travel worldwide for her teacher training and spend time in mindful communities that practice meditation as a core daily practice. For Reena, these practices form a way of life, and since finding these practices has not spent a single day without it.
Reena’s style is very much practical, realistic and long term. If she genuinely feels she cannot help you she will signpost you to the right place. Reena can determine the specific needs of each client, which means she can quickly formulate a plan which will work for you. Her natural ability to empathise and connect brings a lightness to her work which also makes the sessions inspiring and engaging. If you would like to work with Reena, she would be more than delighted to hear from you.
Reena has strong links with Leicestershire universities and has been supported by both Loughborough University and De Montfort University for her vision for Inner8. Also, as a Masters Graduate of Loughborough University’s Business School, the Alumni department wrote an article on Reena’s plans in the early stages of Inner8’s development. You can read it here.
