Dr. Vinneta is a dedicated, disciplined medical practitioner. She has immense social commitments. She has gathered vast clinical experience over 35years.

Her approach to handle the case, is mainly conservative, trying to reach the cause. In the journey of reaching the cause, she was fascinated by Yogic Health Science, which she practiced for her own health.

In the process she got deeply involved into the Therapeutic aspects of Yogic Science. Her base of Yogic study is Ashtangyoga with selective postures from Hathyoga & Rope Belt Therapy.

She is devoted to Yogic Training programmes, for Teachers, Therapists & Doctors. At the same time she is actively involved in Medical Yogatherapy for Degenerative Musculoskeletal & Psychosomatic disorders of body.

In addition she is occupied in her own clinical practice based on modern medicine. It is her ultimate desire to give full justice to her noble profession.

After completing these training programmes, her students become enthusiast to promote Yogic Health Science in the society & offer services.
