After many encouraging words of wisdom from my mom, I finally found yoga in my junior year of college. As soon as I graduated from school, I completed my 200 and 500-hour yoga teacher training courses in New York at the Atmananda Yoga Sequence. My training gave me insight on myself and a wonderful foundation for my practice to develop into a unique, feminine style. I'm currently a 500 RYT & 200 E-RYT.

 

Shortly after getting certified in New York, I moved to Miami where I slowly began my career as a yoga teacher. I started branding myself and my yoga business as Priti Yoga. In 2015 I started a Miami based yoga event called Rise and SoulShine, which has turned into a large gathering of yogis, vendors, and philanthropists alike. Through yoga, my talented SoulShine partners and I raise and donate hundreds of dollars to different local charities every month.

 

Focusing on powerful flows mixed with traditional balancing poses, students can expect a repetition of challenging calisthenics, inversions, breath work, core exercises, and deep juicy stretches. With an emphasis on transitions, movements are slow, fluid, and controlled to help establish body listening skills and mindfulness.

 

With my mom, Jody, and fellow TILT founder, Julianne, I lead 2-3 yoga retreats per year, taking yogis on unique international adventures around the globe. These retreats vary from high-end luxury to rustic adventure getaways, the next one being in Belize in October 2018.

 

When I'm not teaching, I can be found painting, putting my green thumb to use around the house, snuggling with my dog and fiancé, planning the next adventure, or making something delicious in the kitchen. I'm a firm believer in living a balanced life and consuming all things green and all things sweet. Life's too short otherwise!
