History of Aiyana Wellness?
Minal was on her way back to India after spending time in America, to assist her Dad with his health.
While on the journey, she met Ms. Savina Ritter at a water cooler near the rear of the aircraft which had just come out of turbulence. A long discussion followed between the two which led to each other talking and discussing life in general. These discussions led to them becoming partners for their future business in Facial Yoga.
Narrated by Savina:- "It was late, I was tired, sleepy. In my head, a voice kept repeating" when the seat belt sign goes off, up you get & go to the galley". I thought No way!!, but the minute the signs went green, I found myself standing in front of Minal! Seeing there were a few drops of water, I insisted we proceed to the rear of the aircraft. And here we began talking about Maha Avatar Babaji...... and more. By the time we reached Paris, I had photographed the photo of "Guruji Swami Swaprakashanand". Today, he is looks serenely from my mobile screen. We by some strange spiritual push had commenced on a path (from which neither of us has looked back), which surprises’ both of us at every turn".
