Investment banking is a demanding and often stressful profession that can take a toll on one’s physical and mental health. Traditional approaches to managing stress, such as mindfulness classes, are becoming increasingly common in investment banks. However, Mariya Gancheva, an investment banker at HSBC, believes that Kundalini Yoga, a spiritual practice that combines meditation and physical movements, offers a unique path to self-love, detoxification, and resilience.

The Power of Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga, an ancient practice originating in India, incorporates meditation, mantra chanting, and rhythmic breathing techniques to awaken the kundalini energy, believed to reside at the base of the spine. This practice aims to balance the body’s subtle energy systems, promote detoxification, and enhance one’s spiritual awareness.

Gancheva has been practicing Kundalini Yoga for over seven years and has found it to be transformative. She credits the practice with improving her health, reducing stress, and fostering a deeper sense of self-love.

The Detox Program

In her book, “Detox: with Green Diet and Kundalini Yoga,” Gancheva outlines a 40-day detox program that combines Kundalini Yoga practices with a healthy diet. The program is designed to cleanse the body, boost metabolism, and promote a radiant appearance.

The Kundalini Yoga component of the program includes specific postures and breathing techniques that aim to stimulate the detoxification process and support the health of various organs. The dietary component emphasizes consuming organic whole foods, plant-based proteins, and hydrating beverages.

Scientific Basis

Research has shown that Kundalini Yoga can have numerous health benefits. Studies have found that it can:

* Improve flexibility and strength
* Reduce stress and anxiety
* Boost metabolism and weight loss
* Enhance sleep quality
* Strengthen the immune system

The combination of physical and spiritual practices in Kundalini Yoga makes it a potent practice for promoting both physical and mental well-being.


Mariya Gancheva’s journey as an investment banker and a Kundalini Yoga practitioner offers a unique perspective on self-care and resilience in the demanding field of finance. By combining yoga, detox, and spirituality, Gancheva has found a path to greater self-love, health, and well-being. Her book and her work through Kundalini Lounge provide accessible tools for others to explore the transformative power of Kundalini Yoga.
