Rohini Singh has done different things at different times in her life. She graduated in International Law but never practiced it, turning instead to handling the Public Relations Department for a reputed export firm and honing her skills in Russian and Czech, two languages she was proficient in at the time.
After the birth of her child, she gave up a corporate career in favour of pursuing totally new or more accurately, unexplored areas of interest. She taught herself cooking and ended up writing a highly popular fortnightly column in the Hindustan Times and the Tribune. That resulted in her being invited to write a number of cook-books, of which two became internationally acclaimed best sellers. She has written books for children and along the way, became a proficient freelance editor privileged to edit books for leading authorities in fields of art, literature, music and fiction writing. Simultaneously, she began to dabble in an area which today has become a consuming passion: holistic healing and alternative therapies.
She joined Tathagat to create New Leaf Training with the aim of offering workshops that offered skills required in the corporate sector fused with elements of self-enquiry and growth. Recognised in the field of alternative therapies she is an expert in the areas of Wellness, Self Management, Energy Dynamics, Stress Release etc. One of the first people to teach the radical energy tool, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) in India, as well as a certified hypnotherapist and Rebirthing Breath-worker, she has a number of tools in her bag that are extremely valuable for corporate executives battling stresses of burnout, competitiveness, and deadline pressures coupled with the tensions of living in a city.
Rohini loves sharing the knowledge and experience she has gained along her own journey and is a sincere and sensitive facilitator. Her Team Building and Bonding programs always include a module that teaches stress relief and anger/anxiety management. She also enjoys teaching modules on enhancing Creativity, Presentation skills and the Enneagram, an ancient system of discovering ones driving motivations, strengths and weaknesses.
Some of the companies she has conducted trainings for include Amway, Vertex, US Aid, NTPC, IFFCO Tokio, General Electric(GE), Glaxo Smith Kline, Siemens, Sri Ram Fertilizers, Hewitt, American Express, VST, Airtel, Valvoline Cummins and American Express, Schneider Electric, Hero Honda, SRF etc.

She regularly conducts workshops and retreats in India and abroad focusing on Mindfulness, Meditation, and various aspects of healing and spiritual growth. She has been invited to conduct her workshops in Singapore, Germany, Dubai, Pakistan and the U.S.A.
