Chitra Balachandran

Writer, fitness coach, and body positivity advocate
Chitra Balachandran, better known as Bombay Bellyrina, is a former fashion designer and dancer who found herself on a fitness journey following a prolonged illness. Along that journey, she learned how there's so much more to health than a dress size, and how healing her mind and self-esteem offered far more significant results than a flat stomach. She now works with brands and individuals to help them realize the power of good health, intuitive eating, self-love, and body positivity.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
