The divine wants you to control yourself, the ego wants to control you.Savitri


Teaching Heartfull Meditation and Lifestyle at our Purna Yoga College, 500hr class. Savitri, creator of Heartfull, was born in India and grew up in Bombay until the age of 7. Savitri began her journey as a young woman praying for truth and understanding for the incomprehensible events of her life. When she was 11 she had a serious head injury, as a teenager she suddenly lost both her parents in a devastating plane crash and few years later she experienced the shocking murder of her sister. These events led to life threatening illnesses and several near-death experiences. Through sincere prayer and over 30 years of intense personal practice, Savitri healed her personal tragedies and illnesses, helping thousands of students do the same. Since 1995, it has become her life’s work to share Heartfull Meditation™ with the world. Savitri is the founder of Heartfull Meditation™, the Alive and Shine Center Foundation and the co-owner of Alive and Shine Center in Bellevue. The Align and Shine Snacks helped her to come alive and shine, when she was told she would never have children, blessing her with her beautiful daughter Zenia. Savitri’s Heartfull Meditation techniques are taught in Alive and Shine Foundation and Yoga Behind Bars Foundation.
