“You can change the destiny of the child just by the way you breathe, just by the way you move”

Nurture Yourself and Your Baby

Meet Gayatri

My nursing background led me to working in a high-risk Labor and Delivery Unit supporting hundreds of women through the journey into motherhood.
A call for spiritual answers, led me to take time away from the clinical setting and travel to the Ananda Meditation Retreat in Northern California. I lived, studied, and served here for over two years attuning myself to the teachings of the Indian Guru, Paramhansa Yogananda. I became a disciple and am a twice daily practitioner of yoga and meditation. During this time I became certified as a yoga and meditation instructor, and have taken additional training in prenatal yoga, restorative yoga, and spiritual counseling.
I now live at Ananda Village, a spiritual community founded by a direct disciple of Yogananda. It is my joy and inspiration to share the practices that have changed my life with others. I am deeply inspired to work more directly with prenatal mamas, to share the experience and wisdom I gained from the clinical setting but also integrate the Eastern teachings to foster a meaningful and sacred birthing experience. 

I really look forward to sharing time with each one of you and hope to be of support to you and your baby during this sacred time.
