After 17 years teaching in the public school system, Deepali felt the calling to expound her passion for all areas of yoga. She spent over 2 years living, studying, and teaching at the highly esteemed Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy in Pennsylvania. During this time, Deepali also taught classes at the headquarters of the global yoga platform Yoga International (you can see her featured on their homepage), and modeled for various yoga videos and articles. She also modeled for the book, "Yoga Where You Are" which highlights accessible yoga practices. During her years in PA, Deepali taught yoga classes for children in the Wayne Highlands school district. Her passion for teaching and working with kids inspired her to design an innovative classroom yoga curriculum for school children.
