Mira Manek was born and raised in London, where she grew up in a family strongly rooted in its Indian heritage. She grew up speaking Gujarati and learned Sanskrit at school. This, in conjunction with attending Ram Kathas (nine-day spiritual events) from a young age all over India, inspired Mira's passion for Indian philosophy and spirituality, and Ayurveda in particular. Her first book, Saffron Soul, is a cookbook inspired by the vegetarian food of the Gujarat region. Mira runs a cafe at Triyoga Soho, Chai by Mira, and hosts events and retreats around the UK and the rest of the world.
