Yogaprapanch is started when the founder Ms.Swati R who was practicing yoga using props but could not find all the props easily, hence she thought of starting her own Yoga prop outlet where it would be an one stop place for all the yoga products required. She also wanted to get all the Yoga Teachers under one roof (yogaprapanch) so that yoga enthusiasts could access teachers of their choice or at their area easily and continue their practice at ease.

She had been trained by Sir.Raghavendra Shenoy who is a direct disciple of B.K.S Iyengar. She has been practicing Yoga for the past 18 years. In her words "Actually I had joined yoga in summer holidays just to vail away my time during holidays but I didn't imagine it would change my life in such a positive note!".
