About Me

Pallavi was first introduced to meditation as a young child and began formal studies in spirituality, yoga, and meditation in 2004 at The Himalayan Institute in Pennsylvania. Along with being trained in Buddhist mindfulness practice, she is also a certified Pranic healer. She has been teaching Mindfulness and Meditation to both adults and children since 2005. She has further explored meditation extensively through Dr. Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield’s teachings and worked with people to treat stress, fear, anxiety, anger, depression, grief, and trauma.

 

Pallavi uses various meditation techniques, along with breath awareness and relaxation to help people (re)discover their immense strength, compassion and gain an understanding of their thought process. This leads to reduction in stress and an increase in focus, productivity, clarity of thought, and well-being. She incorporates the concept of resilience in her teaching and works with each client, offering customized programs to meet their needs.
