Representing the core of Vedic spirituality, this mantra perfectly sums up the essence of Raa Foundation’s philosophy. In each of us lies the inherent need towards building a community that is symbiotic with nature. Raa believes in only using resources that we can give back to the ecosystem and in physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually connecting to the very source that binds us all. Using resources that we can give back to the ecosystem by way of physically, mentally and spiritually connecting to the very source from which we have all come from.

It is with this understanding that Raa Foundation holds the belief that noble thoughts will come to us from all directions. The vision and mission of the foundation is to involve science, medicine, naturopathy, art and other interdisciplinary fields to form a community that vibrates on the wave length of this philosophy of interconnectedness. This mantra from the Rig Veda is the heart and soul of our ideology, because we at Raa move beyond basic rituals and practices across religions; surrendering to a supreme and all-encompassing energy that allows us to experience the supreme power that resides in each one of us.

Radhika Iyer Talati

As a mother, yogini, entrepreneur, model and mountaineer, Radhika is an eclectic blend of the modern woman. She started her first successful business, Ivy Concepts, 18 years ago, and turned it into a powerhouse of events, decors, weddings and much more. Having participated as a finalist for Gladrags Mrs. India in 2003, she has also been associated with the glamour world in many capacities.

But after a tryst with cancer and several other life changing diseases, she had an inward transformation and decided to launch her 2nd successful venture - Raa Yoga centre in 2009. She turned the humble yoga centre into now a Foundation that works relentlessly towards incorporating Yoga in everyone’s day to day life.

Her work as a yoga practitioner, meditation instructor, designer, curator, educator and counsellor has popularized the tenants of yoga and spirituality, across the state of Gujarat. Her wide experience with so many facets has been instrumental in earning her the laurels of being She’s Mercedes representative in India for 2018 amongst others. She is one of the few women to have completed the Panch Kailash, scale Mt. Kilimanjaro while trekking to newer destinations across the Himalayas every year.

Radhika is a motorbike and fitness enthusiast and believes that a healthy body will lead eventually to a healthy mind. She is also a well-known motivational speaker and has counselled more than 150 cancer patients and people undergoing depression and substance abuse.

She is a firm believer of the Indic value system and has developed educational material for several universities and schools in Vadodara. Ultimately, she believes in being kind, doing good and embodying the spirit of love and gratitude in all that crosses her path.
