Yoga has given her immense strength and helped her rediscover herself.

It teaches her to enjoy the physical movement of the body while experiencing a stillness in the mind.Shwetha and her husband Manu have been married for more than 10 years and have a son, Shiva (named after Lord Shiva who is the first Yogi). Both of them were immersed into a culture of shlokas and mantras from childhood. They formally studied Sanskrit from high school.
