About the instructors: 

Savitri- Alive & Shine Center

Savitri, renowned Meditation Master, was born in India and grew up in Bombay until the age of 7. Savitri began her journey as a 25 year-old housewife, praying for truth and understanding for the incomprehensible events of her life. When she was 11 she had a serious head injury, and as a teenager she suddenly lost both her parents in a plane crash. A few years later she experienced the shocking death of her sister. This led to life threatening illnesses and many near-death experiences. Through sincere prayer and over 30 years of intense personal practice, Savitri has overcome her personal tragedies and illnesses and helped thousands of students do the same. Since 1995, it has become her life’s work to share Heartfull Meditation™. Savitri is the founder and creator of Heartfull Meditation™ and the Alive and Shine Center Foundation. The Align and Shine Snacks helped her to come alive and shine, and blessed her with her beautiful daughter, Zenia.

Savitri’s loving demeanor and undeniable integrity is felt by those who study with her. She delights in sharing her wisdom so that others can live a truly heartful life. Her easy to learn techniques take you from being in ego to being caring, happy and heart-centered.
