Anjuli Mahendra Bio
Anjuli Mahendra is a multi-modality healer, teacher, and founder of Shakticura Healing Lounge. Her Berkeley-based private practice, Embodied Resonance includes integrated bodywork, coaching, and workshops that focus on opening the body to it’s highest potential.
Her connection to holistic movement and healing started in 1999 through a regular Iyengar yoga practice that developed into yoga teaching in 2004. That year, her adventurous nature took her to Asia where she fell in love with the Asian healing arts of Shiatsu and Thai massage, training in both and adding them to her repertoire. In 2007, she did an extensive 700-hr training in Structrual Integration at the Pacific Center for Awareness and Bodywork and has added on further bodywork trainings in Thai massage and Chi Nei Tsang.
Anjuli’s teaching style is a unique synthesis of dance, movement, and healing practices. She has developed her own twist on Contact Yoga, drawing on her somatic experiences with contact improvisation, acro-yoga, and bodywork. In addition to Contact Yoga, she teaches Thai massage, hatha yoga, and dance workshops.
