About Me

Pallavi is a holistic meditation, mindfulness, and lifestyle teacher and guide who has touched hundreds of lives over the past 15 years.  Her mission in life is to incorporate the concept of resilience into her teaching and give the attendees tools to help and heal themselves as they navigate life outside of the class. 


Pallavi was introduced to meditation India at the age of 7 years, and since then has integrated it into her way of life. She deepened her practice through her various learnings in India and Nepal, over the years. She strengthened her commitment to self by periodically attending many silent retreats. Her training in yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices are supported by her rigorous reading of the scriptures that are the source for modern-day practices. As any true practioner she has spent many years in the pursuit of learning as much as she has spent time sharing what she has learned. Her specialty is the ability to make you feel like she is directly talking to you even though you are in a group session. 


Her style of teaching gives you the tools to reduce stress, build resilience, improve attention, and focus. She empowers you to reflect, recharge, and inspires you to improve mental, emotional, and physical health. Her skill lies in recognizing your emotional intelligence and helping you leverage that to become better human beings. The key being self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, compassion, and social skills.

"The goal is not to be better than the other man, but your previous self." - Dalai Lama
