Welcome to Tejal Yoga. This is your home to learn about yoga for your life. I offer yoga using my name Tejal, as Tej means radiance in Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language. I hope the yoga you practice with me brings you brightness, clarity, and lets light and lightness radiate through you! The yoga practice I offer is accessible for all people, any level.
I specialize in private, prenatal, & semi-private sessions designed to meet your physical, emotional, or wellness need. My philosophy and teaching is based on the 8-limbs of yoga (click to read more). It's my pleasure to sculpt sessions to be sure you are seen and heard.
I am a passionate advocate for the Indian American teacher in the Western offerings of yoga. I believe in diverse representation for all people of color (POC) in yoga and create offerings that are inclusive, accessible for all body types, income and experience levels. My aim is to offer a practice that raises the power of all individuals and communities involved with yoga.
I'd love to hear how yoga is part of your life and where you feel more representation could be beneficial. You can email me your thoughts anytime here.
