A professionally trained dancer, Varma's fascination with the mental, physical, and energetic connection of movement and its influence on health and well-being, along with the experience of birthing her first child, led her to becoming a birth doula in 2000, a certified Pilates instructor in 2006, and a licensed massage therapist in 2020.
