PRONOUNS: SHE / HER
Deepali Patel has grown up with the practice of yoga as a lifestyle, and has studied and taught it regularly since 2013. She is a certified 500-hour yoga teacher, 95-hour children’s yoga teacher, and Reiki practitioner, with a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. Her life’s work has been to teach and guide students of all ages to find peace and center between mind and body. Deepali embodies the belief that the benefits of yoga can be enjoyed by ALL, and teaches classes inclusive of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
After 17 years teaching in the public school system, Deepali was called to take time away from the classroom to develop her passion for yoga and meditation—spending over 2 years working and training at the highly esteemed Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy in Pennsylvania. During her time in PA, Deepali taught adult classes at the headquarters of the global yoga platform, Yoga International, as well as classes for children in the local school district. She has also modeled for various yoga videos and photos. Deepali envisions a day when the tools and resources of yoga will be available to all school children to help them establish healthier practices for life. She currently teaches yoga in schools online nationally and locally in Houston, Texas.
When Deepali is not practicing yoga and Reiki energy work, you can find her in nature- hiking and earthing, or curled up with a good book in a coffee shop. She grew up and has spent most of her life in Georgia.
