Welcome to Yoganjali
Yoga is much more than making shapes on a mat. It is about seeking, exploring, and finding a connection within and out.
Yoga is a multi-dimensional practice with the potential to enrich our lives in every way and should be made accessible to everyone. It can be profoundly transformative, helping lead lives of balance, self awareness, clarity, and joy. The practice on the mat can help us reveal who we are off the mat.
I discovered yoga after undergoing surgery for early-stage breast cancer. By the end of my first class, I was in love! The experience gave me an intimate connection with my body, which needed healing from within.
I knew that this practice would be in my life forever and truly started my journey. After completing the 200-hours Yoga Teacher Training at Mind Body Zone, my goal of helping others overcome health challenge brought me to an apprenticeship with my teacher and mentor: Lorien Neargarder, who taught "Yoga for Cancer Survivors and Patients" at the Stanford Cancer Care Program. My 500-hours Yoga Teacher Training at Breathe Together with Jennifer Prugh, is near completion. She has influenced my life deeply, both on and off the mat.
My teaching incorporates all that I learn in human anatomy, yoga philosophy, mindfulness practices, and an abiding love of Indian classical dance. I teach Yoga Basics for Stanford Cancer Care, Wellness Yoga at Washington Hospital, and Vinyasa Yoga for corporate and private clients in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I believe in “seva” (service): giving back to the community. Volunteering with grass root level organizations especially for women and participating as a citizen are integral parts of my life. I am a Board Member at HERS Breast Cancer Foundation, a non-profit that serves patients and survivors from all walks of life.
My intention is to continue sharing what I know, empowering you and me on our paths and learning as long as I live.
Thank you for reading. Namaste.
