Tulsi Bagnoli M.A. is a fourth generation meditator who has been practicing yoga and meditation since the age of four and teaching professionally throughout the US and India for the past 15 years. She is passionate about the practice of living yoga and helping people awaken to the untapped energy that flows within us all.
Weaving the alchemy of her own 30 year practice and experience as a student, Tulsi creates endless space for authenticity and deep healing. She intuitively personalizes each class as medicine for her students needs. The invitation is to come as you are and practice your yoga.
Tulsi was raised since birth in an atmosphere of mantra, meditation and spiritual lifestyle. Her parents both were teachers of Transcendental Meditation and her father is a Vedic Astrologer. Tulsi was initiated as a young child into meditation and yoga. From the age of four, she would sit with her parents for morning and evening Sadhana (practice). From that moment forward, she became a devoted practitioner and seeker of Vedic wisdom.
In her teens, Tulsi was in a car accident that changed the course of her life. 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 renowned mentors and teachers.
"I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy." ~ Tagore
