Established her own institute GirijaBNair's Prajapathi Yoga centre in 1994.
The word Prajapatihi or the "lord of people" refers to a group of deities presiding over procreation and protection of life. This apt name for the institute was suggested by the Late Smt Kamala Das (Madhavikutti) and lyricist Shri Kaithapuram Damodharan Namboothiripad.
She is currently doing her research in "Yoga science - Anatomy of Hatha yoga" as she still considers herself as a student in this age old tradition of Yoga.
In order to propagate and impart what she has learned, she intends to author a series of Yoga books in the near future for beginners and intermediate students. This initiative is a result of popular request and encouragement of numerous students and readers of the "Yoga 4 u" articles by Mrs. Girija B Nair published in Manorama Metro newspaper since 2010.
Of late, Mrs. Girija B Nair is actively involved in social service activities through the Rotary club of Cochin Milan (Ladies wing).
