Tulsi Bagnoli , E-RYT-500
Tulsi’s initiation into meditation and yoga came from her parents, who were teachers of Transcendental Meditation. From the age of four she would sit with her parents for morning and evening sadhana (practice) basking in the experience of Samadhi. To truly understand and appreciate the gifts she had been given, Tulsi began to walk her own path and experience the journey through her own eyes. A true search and yearning for the divine blossomed through her late teens and led her also to become a teacher of Transcendental Meditation and Hatha yoga at the age of 20. She continued to practice and teach both yoga and meditation while attending Maharishi University of Management, where she completed a in Vedic Science with an emphasis in Sanskrit chanting in 2009. Tulsi continued on in her training that same year to become a certified teacher in the Vinyasa Krama style of yoga with Sri Srivatsa Ramaswami, in the lineage of Sri T. Krishnamacharya. During 2012-2013 Tulsi spent 6 months teaching and studying yoga in India, where she completed a 300 hour Sattva Yoga teaching training in the foothills of the Himalayas.
Her passion lies in teaching 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. Her style is a graceful, yet vibrant integration of solar and lunar energies within the body, mind and soul. Tulsi conducts her classes based on her intuitive sense of each student's need, so every class is a unique experience in self exploration.
