About EK


It all started when our CEO and founder, Rossana Ruschel, went through her journey of self-discovery, and her life was transformed by yoga and meditation.

This profound experience of living the true yoga purpose of “cultivate a higher consciousness in the individual” and experiencing there were more aspects of life that should be observed beyond the obvious motivated her to harvest the idea of creating products that could cultivate and elevate the yoga practice in a more meaningful way. And just like that, Enlightened Koala was born.
