Shonali has been singing and dancing since she first wiggled her way out of the womb. From the moment she could reach the keys, she studied classical piano. She received her B.F.A. in Drama from Syracuse University in 1996. Upon moving to NYC in 1998, Shonali found solace, strength and profound expansion through yoga and chanting. These practices supported Shonali while she was shifting away from the world of acting. In 2002, after a bicycle accident, Shonali quit her stressful job in downtown Manhattan, and still recovering from injuries, completed Alan Finger’s 500 hour ISHTA yoga teacher training program. She became Director of ISHTA’s Yoga Teacher Training programs. During this period, Shonali sang with a group of wise earth-honoring soul-seekers actively exploring chants from a multitude of traditions. Shonali apprenticed as an herbalist in the Wise Woman Tradition furthering a long-standing connection to the natural world, aligning herself with the natural cycles of the seasons & the moon. After moving to Paris, France in 2004, Shonali studied therapeutics & women’s health with the illustrious TKV Desikachar and taught private yoga full time. In 2005, Shonali began teaching prenatal yoga. Shonali relocated to Atlanta in 2010 and soon thereafter completed a second 500 hour training with the Pranakriya Yoga school and is now a certified Yoga Therapist. Shonali teaches regularly at local yoga studios and offers private yoga sessions to any and all who are curious about yoga and it’s healing potential. You’ll find Shonali chanting mystical songs & harmonies in the vibrant Atlanta chanting community and until 2017 in a beautiful partnership called Mantra MA! Shonali supports Centering Youth, a non-profit bringing yoga to under-served populations throughout Atlanta.
In perpetual gratitude to the many phenomenal teachers who have inspired her: her students, her family, Alan Finger, TKV Desikachar, Carrie Wykoff, Robin Rose Bennett, Rachel Zinman, Erich Schiffman, Mark Whitwell, Hillary Cohen, Tias Little, Marlysa Sullivan, Yoganand Michael Carroll, among others! … Namaste.
