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 13 years. Tulsi is passionate about the practice of living yoga and helping people awaken to the untapped energy that flows within us all. For more about Tulsi, please see her bio here.


In 25 years of practicing yoga I have had many yoga teachers. Tulsi Bagnoli is the most gifted teacher I have known, a veritable yoga guru. Her clear and warm instruction coordinates creative poses with yogic breathing which physically and spiritually challenge students. I appreciate her wonderful speaking voice, beautiful imagery, and words of wisdom. What I love the most is Tulsi’s faith in students’ individual capacity to learn and grow, and her encouragement of students to stay true to their own experience. Her singing is natural, unaffected, and inspiring. I have enjoyed many peak moments in Tulsi’s classes; not only did my body get a phenomenal workout, but I also experienced moments of bliss, peace, and transcendence.

I came to Tulsi’s class at a time when I was struggling personally and professionally and her class brought me a level of peace that I had not experienced before. I have enjoyed it and have the extra benefit of being more flexible! I will really miss her classes.

I have only been doing yoga with any ongoing regularity for about two years. Smiling Dog Yoga is a wonderful studio with many outstanding teachers. For me, Tulsi is the very best of these teachers. She has an amazing demeanor and has so much experience for someone so young. Her classes have the most genuine natural flow. She is very gentle, very present and very graceful. Her beautiful singing is a wonderful way to begin and end classes. She has a very loyal core of students and her class is almost always full. I will miss her very much, but I realize our loss will be others gain.

Tulsi peacefully & playfully transports you through your yoga & meditation practice. She somehow surreptitiously rejuvenates your spirit, with soulful chanting & conscious alignment. She exemplifies the heart & soul of yoga & mediation. I look forward to following Tulsi’s magic on my spiritual path.
