Remember, it is not only you who are seeking truth -
Truth is also seeking you.

Payal Parekh is a 500-hour nationally certified vinyasa based yoga teacher. Her trainings include 200 hours from Exhale New York in 2014 (under guidance of Nixa De Bellis, Stefanie Eris and Isaac Pena) and 300 hours from Urban Zen Integrative Therapy training at Yoga Shanti, New York City. She concluded a 100-hour Adaptive Yoga teacher training (designed to adapt yoga practice for various health conditions including illness, injury and chronic stress) with Jillian Pransky at Yoga Works and 20 hours of Yoga Tune Up Integrated Embodied Anatomy. Her meditation trainings include The Power of Awareness Mindfulness Training with Tara Brach & Jack Kornfield (The Awareness Training Institute in association with The Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley). She is also a first-degree practitioner of Reiki initiated by Pamela Miles.

Payal enjoys integrating Urban Zen healing modalities, including aromatherapy, body scan, reiki, restorative posturing and breath work into her classes. She believes in the power of movement and meditation in everyday life, which began when she was a teenager and student of Modern Dance and Ballet at Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University. Payal tailors each class to fit the individual needs of her clientele with an emphasis to revive and restore mind and body. Under her guidance, students are able to transform by building their flexibility, endurance and strength in a safe and encouraging atmosphere. She reminds her students to set an intention, "breathe, trust, and connect with themselves" in every class.

Payal is currently teaching at Exhale and Floating Lotus in New York City. She is also the newest Fitness and Wellness Curator at New York's Knickerbocker Hotel, offering vinyasa flow, meditation and restorative experiences to guests. Her passion and joy for healing led her to Sinai Hospital in Maryland, where she worked with cancer patients at The Alvin + Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute outpatient infusion center for many years.
