 “When I let go of what I am, I become what I may be”  –  Lao Tzu

“Ranjani” is a Sanskrit name given to me upon  graduation at Sri Swami Satchidananda Ashram in Yogaville, VA.  Ranjani translates to “One who gives joy to others”.  

I teach Yoga because, simply put, I enjoy it so much.  I teach to encourage students to go deeper into their practice, to increase their strength and flexibility, to learn to breath, to help them de-stress and to become healthier people.  I enjoy teaching to someone who has never practiced before and watch them slowly come alive on the mat. I believe Yoga is for everyone regardless of age, health, flexibility, strength, body style, current health or faith.  This all translates into daily lives resulting in a healthier lifestyle.  Practicing Yoga can and will change your life!  

 I am a hands-on instructor with a playful spirit and a sense of humor guiding students through the asanas as I keep a watchful eye ensuring proper alignment in each pose.  I encourage students to come to their edge, to use the breath to go deeper.  Classes are lighthearted and fun with large doses of inspiration as students weave their way through creative sequences.
