Hi, thanks for reading ๐Ÿ™‚
I’m Raneesha, the person behind Radiant Roots.

I am a Mindfulness & Somatic practitioner and an advocate of inner wellbeing. I am also a trained dancer and a software developer ๐Ÿ™‚


Radiant Roots is an initiative born out of the interweaving of many streams within my personal life, that of those around me and those before me.

Mind-body connection was introduced to me through dance training – through the practice itself, and also through mythologies and origins of ancient arts. I am primarily trained in South Asian Dance and have been in the field for 20 years or so.

While mind-body intelligence appeared fascinating, it wasnโ€™t until I felt my own mind and body seeking desperate help that this understanding deepened from intellectual to experiential. I pulled the brakes to take a good look at the anxiety, panic, and emotional extremes that I had registered as โ€˜normalโ€™ and swept well under the rug.

This was the turning point, healing was an Everest – challenging, empowering. What appeared as physical, emotional and mental extremes eventually revealed a much bigger picture. It required relearning, resourcing, rearranging and rebuilding. A history of inter-generational and collective trauma played a key role. I joined a meditation class, and a world of discovery began to unfold. Meditation paved a clearing through which the entire mess gradually revealed and unpicking this became the most interesting thing I ever did and will continue to do.
