Shuli is a Boston based yoga and pilates teacher. A spiritual seeker from a young age, shuli was always intrigued by the mystique of Eastern philosophies and religions. After serving in the Israeli Army as a combat field instructor, Shuli’s desire to return to a place of peace lead her to an extensive and profound journey through South East Asia, namely India, and to the study of yoga. Shuli studied several styles of yoga starting with Sivananda and Anusara, and in more recent years Prana Flow and Ashtanga.
Shuli earned her graduate degree in Clinical Psychology at Columbia University in NYC, with a special focus in Positive Psychology. She assisted her mentor Dr. Lisa Miller, Director of the Spirituality & Mind/Body Institute at Columbia, on a study examining mindfulness meditation and how it may help reduce professional burnout. During this time she earned her 200 hour yoga certification with Sonic Yoga in NYC ,under Lauren Hanna and Johanna Bell. She wrote her final grad school theses on the benefits of yoga for postpartum depression.
Shuli is currently pursuing her 500 hour Prana Flow training with Shiva Rea, as well as a 200 hour Ayurvedic Life Style Consultant training with Maria Garre , a faculty member at Ayurvedic Institute under Dr. Lad. Shuli became a certified Power Pilates instructor in 2011 under the guidance of Nancy Keating, director of the regional training center for Power Pilates education in New England. Shuli teaches mat and tower pilates in Boston.
