Farah Nazarali

Farah is a devoted yoga student who has been teaching for over 20 years. She is deeply committed to yoga, healing, and being of service. She regularly leads transformational retreats that help participants to expand their heart’s capacity, restore, rest and rejuvenate, and live a life rooted in purpose. 

She is a pioneer in integrating yogic practices and Buddhist teachings with non-violent communication and conflict resolution and is known and loved for skills in mediating conflict and facilitating dialogue that deepens understanding, connection, and intimacy.

She has a deep love for all things yoga and is profoundly inspired by the sacred texts of yoga, the teachings of Buddhism, and wisdom traditions that lead us to love, truth, wonder and awe.

She loves forest-gazing and ocean-bathing and takes pleasure in the simple joys of life- cooking, gardening, and being in the company of loved ones.

“I think of Farah each day. Farah helped me find my center and it’s her voice I hear telling me I am extraordinary. My dark days are not so dark and there is a sense of space and peace that my soul has been looking for. I could never have got there without Farah and her love. I just can’t even find the words!!” – Candace Haspeck

“Farah is one of those rare individuals who really walks her talk; she truly lives and demonstrates her values. She radiates love, compassion, kindness, and helpfulness.” – Erica Pinsky

“Farah leads yoga classes with calm, pure love, gentleness, and never pushes your body into pain. Unlike many yoga teachers, she does not focus on perfect alignment or lots of overly detailed instructions that cause more unnecessary agitation in the mind. Instead, she teaches slowly and with softness, respecting each individual’s personal edges. Farah’s voice is soothing, instantly relaxing, and helps one to stay centered and grounded.” – Jamie Rufas

Thanks for providing the opportunity for me to be part of something so special.” – Nancy Carroll
