Ranjana Pallana is an East Indian from Uganda, Africa. After finishing college in India with a bachelors in agriculture she returned to her family in Uganda. Not finding a job based on her new qualifications was due to cultural norms. Indian girls stayed sheltered either with parents or their husbands. She took a job as a high school teacher. During that time she met an American citizen, Kumar Pallana, of East Indian origin, married, and came to the USA after spending time in Europe.
Travelling with Kumar who was in show business was interesting but she felt the need to settle down with her 2yr old son. A man in show business starves if not travelling. Kumar began instructing Yoga classes in the Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas areas. Frequently double booked Ranjana began instruction in December of 1966.
As time past there was the birth of her daughter, Ranjana supported her 2 children with the income from Yoga Instruction and Therapeutic Massage. Pat Waterman with the Himalayan Institute of Pennsylvania was in need of a Yoga instructor in the Dallas area and Ranjana volunteered. Ranjana also started classes in the name of Siddha Yoga, Swami Muktananda. Ranjana added instructing at Community Colleges and City Recreation Centres.
In 1969 Ranjana moved her business to Dallas, Texas. Her thought was that a dedicated facility would build positive energy rather than the scattered energy from a multi-use facility.
Ranjana has an extensive background in the practice of Hatha Yoga, Yoga Massage and Lymphatic Drainage, among other healing modalities she is an intuitive healer. Ranjana is registered with the Yoga Alliance at the 500 hour level.
