Anjali Budreski BA, MS, RYT, is a yogini, ‘themestress’, entrepreneur, and lover of life! Anjali founded and opened Yoga Mountain Center (now Embodied) in Montpelier, Vermont in 2003, which she grew and developed for 11 years. Through her passion and commitment to yoga and community, she developed the studio into a reputable and thriving yoga center & healing arts space. Anjali teaches public classes and workshops at Embodied in Montpelier, Kula Center in Stowe & other locations in Vermont and beyond.
Anjali is passionate about sharing her love of yoga with others and has been immersed in the study and practice of Yoga since 2000. She has completed comprehensive 200-hour teacher trainings in both Kripalu and Anusara Yoga, has taught workshops and trainings at Kripalu Center, and has trained and practiced with a wide variety of gifted asana and philosophy teachers. Ultimately, Anjali has come to discover the undeniable Truth that the greatest teacher lives within. She encourages her students to cultivate this inner resource, trust their deepest knowings and follow their own hearts and internal cues both on and off the mat.
Anjali’s classes are powered by the beauty, potency, and alchemy of nature, as well as her inquiry into personal growth and evolution through the lens of Yoga, Meditation, Contemplative Psychology, Somatic Experiencing, and Tantric Philosophy. Her sessions are both grounding and soul-lifting, guiding students to safely deepen their practice and open their hearts. Anjali creates a joyful and nourishing space for her students to expand and thrive.
She leads retreats, workshops & trainings both nationally and internationally, including retreats in Vermont, Cape Cod & Costa Rica. Anjali feels most at home by the ocean or nestled in the gorgeous green mountain state of Vermont, which she calls home-base!
