Anjali Sunita

Anjali Sunita began yoga through the study of philosophy. Because, as a teenager, she was always questioning and examining the purpose of life and death, her favorite theater teacher gave her existential philosophy to read like Emerson, Thoreau, and Buddhist texts which later grew into a practice of meditation. She furthered her practice of meditation through the study of North Indian Classical Music at Oberlin College with Hasu Patel, who taught her to concentrate on the chakras and breathing while singing Divine Names. It was at this time that she began giving herself the gift of hatha yoga classes and home practice. As a woman of half Indian descent, Anjali traveled many times to India to visit family and in the meantime traditional ashrams where she could further her inquiries and practice of yoga, philosophy, and meditation. In January 2005, she became certified to teach yoga through the Sivananda Dhanwantari Ashram in South India, a well-rounded system of yoga that emphasizes proper breathing, relaxation, exercise, diet, meditation/ positive thinking. In 2006, she began Baltimore Yoga for Youth, a project bringing the benefits of yoga to Baltimore’s inner city schools. In 2007, she began Baltimore Yoga Village, in the location formerly known as Ahimsa Yoga Center. The dream of the Yoga Village is to serve Baltimore by creating peaceful and loving community centers, which facilitate the practice of authentic yoga for people in all life conditions. Now with two locations in Baltimore, Maryland, she hopes to bring together a diverse community in Baltimore, inclusive of all branches of yoga as paths to peace, health, and meditation.

Anjali believes that the cure of disease is Self Love and it is within the reach of every individual to create a lifestyle that is loving and peaceful. Honoring and cherishing the beauty of this earth is one way to stay connected spiritually, to remember that all things are in a constant process of change, and to feel union with the Great Spirit that makes the flowers bloom, rain fall, and our bodies transform as we age. The more consciously connected we feel, the more ease there will be in our every action, the more we relax into our destiny and are clear in our purpose.
