Anjili travelled to India 2009 where she completed her Yoga Alliance certified 200-hour yoga teacher training with Lalit Kumar and Himalaya Yoga Valley. The program focused heavily on traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga as an 8-Limbed Path. She continued to live and study with various Indian teachers in Rishikesh and Mysore developing a deep connection to the traditional aspects of Yoga as a complete system and lifestyle. Anjili went on to complete her 500-hour Yoga Alliance certified program with Vedantin and SchoolYoga Insitute in 2011, in the Mayan Highlands of Guatemala. This program is focused on Sadhana Yoga, the path of Spiritual Discipline, and provided a deep connection of yoga to the ancient mysteries.

Anjili continued on to more than 1000 hours of training with SYI and has completed other advanced yoga and meditation trainings and workshops with many respected and experienced teachers from all over the world. Anjili then moved on to create and establish Sadhana Yoga School with her partner Bryan Russell and together they continue to share their love of yoga around the globe as well as within their home community where they own and operate Keene Yoga Center. She is currently registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 500 and is a member of International Association of Yoga Therapists.

Anjili is a passionate and dedicated student of Life. She seeks to see the beauty and purpose in all things.

She does this through loving and accepting herself as she is, and because of that she is able to love her friends, her family, her students and strangers on the street, allowing them to be who they are, where they are, without judgments, understanding the simplicity that everything around her is nothing but a reflection of what is within her.

Anjili will lovingly guide you in connecting mind, body and spirit unifying all aspects of the Self, through the breath.
