Movement Arts & Bodywork Bio

Anjuli Mahendra started to delve into conscious movement practice through yoga in 1999. Yoga offered her a new avenue of connecting with her body that allowed her to explore the relationship of her conscious experience with how she engages and uses her physical body. This initiation into the body through yoga blossomed into a passion for studying holistic health primarily through bodywork.

In 2003-04, Anjuli lived in Japan where she studied Aikido and Tao Shiatsu, while continuing to deepen her yoga practice. She began self-training with the hoop in Japan, enjoying the freedom and energy that it induced. While living in Asia, Anjuli also traveled to Thailand several times to study Thai massage.

In 2005, she moved to India where she intensively studied yoga, Ayurveda, and other healing arts modalities. While living in Goa, she was inspired by world-class fire dancers from around the world, and started to add the elements of fire to her own movement. While in India, she also trained in a variety of martial/movement/healing arts such as Shintaido, Watsu, Ayurvedic yoga massage, and Butoh.

From 2005-07, she began performing dance, primarily in Goa, Mumbai, and Delhi, at venues ranging from large corporate events to wedding parties to music festivals.

From 2008-10, Anjuli lived in Kauai where she trained in Structural Integration and developed her own style of bodywork therapy with a desire to help people live in freedom and balance.

In early 2010, she returned to India to train in Odissi dance, a classical Indian form, as well as to deepen into Contact Improvisation studies.

In 2010 Anjuli settled in North Oakland where she  founded Embodied Resonance, her healing arts private practice which includes bodywork, teaching, and coaching.
