Tulsi is a fourth generation meditator who has been practicing yoga and meditation since the age of 4 and teaching professionally throughout the US and India for the past 13 years. Tulsi is passionate about the practice of living yoga and helping people awaken to the untapped energy that flows within us all.

Class Description:
This Hatha Yoga practice combines asana, movement, breathwork, mantra, kriya, and a series of practices that communicate her unique experience and understanding of the yoga of feeling. Participants will learn to integrate breath, yoga posture, and heart feeling to strengthen the body, release constricting emotions, practice acceptance of what is, while moving into openness, and invoking gratitude in the fabric of one's being.

Lasya yoga, the yoga of grace, is an elevating class where students explore methods of the 8-limbed path of Ashtanga Yoga, while cultivating flexibility, core strength and connection to Spirit through deep awareness and breath. This style is a graceful, yet vibrant integration of solar and lunar energies in the mind, body and soul. All levels are welcome.

With nearly three decades as a devoted practitioner and over a decade as a teacher, Tulsi weaves the alchemy of her own practice and experience as a student to create endless space for authenticity and deep healing. She intuitively personalizes each class as medicine for her students needs and works with her students where they are at. The invitation is to come as you are and practice your yoga.

Tulsi was raised in an atmosphere of mantra, meditation and spiritual lifestlye. Both her parents were teachers of Transcendental Meditation and her father was a Vedic Astrologer. Tulsi’s initiation into meditation and yoga came from her parents as a young child. From the age of 4 she would sit with her parents for morning and evening Sadhana (practice). From that moment on she was a devoted practitioner and seeker of Vedic wisdom.

In her late teens Tulsi was in a car accident that changed the course of her life. She sought out a path of healing and self discovery which guided her back to the mid-west, the region of her childhood. This is where she began her formal Hatha Yoga studies, with a teacher whom she devoted nearly a decade of practice with and who encouraged her to begin her teaching practice. After experiencing the immense healing powers and miracles of daily yoga sadhana, she felt a strong calling to share this practice with others. Through her dedication to growth and service, Tulsi was guided to become a certified teacher of meditation and Hatha Yoga at the age of 20.

She continued on to receive a B.A. and M.A. in Vedic Science with an emphasis in Sanskrit chanting, a 200 hour Vinyasa Krama Yoga teacher training with Ramaswami Srivatsa, in the lineage of Sri T. Krishnamacharya, and a 300 hour certification in Sattva Yoga, with Anand Mehrotra, in the foothills of the Himalayas. After a lifetime of being immersed in the sacred Vedic sciences, Tulsi's passion and curiosity led her to dive deeper into Jyotish (Vedic Astrology), Ayurveda and breathwork, studying with world renown mentors and teachers.

Tulsi is grateful to have been blessed to study and sit with the many gifted teachers who have paved the way for her. It is through grace and their guidance that she is able to share her experience and offer the deepest of gifts in service. Hari Aum.
