Sheetal Ajmani is a practicing physician and certified yoga instructor, who is also currently studying Ayurveda. She embodies warmth, compassion, and a sense of healing that are reflected in her teaching of yoga and meditation. She learned her first sun salutation when she was twelve years old, while visiting her grandfather in India. Since then, a quiet interest in yoga rested within her, only to re-awaken while she was attending medical school. In the midst of her rigorous medical training, Sheetal found peace, stillness, and healing through yoga classes at her local gym. She knew that she had tapped into something special, something so deep and powerful that she just had to share it with others! In 2010, she went on to complete her 200-hour yoga instructor training at Atma Bodha Yoga Studio in Virginia Beach, where she remained as an instructor at the studio until she moved to Northern Virginia. In January of 2014, Sheetal founded Shakti Vidya Yoga, where she provides yoga classes and workshops in Northern Virginia and Maryland. In addition, she writes a monthly blog and invites you to read it at http://shaktividyayoga.weebly.com/blog.
