Nischala Joy Devi

Nischala Joy Devi

Nischala Joy Devi is a masterful teacher and healer.  For many years she has been highly respected as an international advocate for her innovative way of expressing Yoga and its subtle uses for spiritual growth and complete healing.  Her unique presentations empower each individual, allowing the teachings to expand beyond boundaries and limitations of any one tradition or any one stage of yoga. Her interview in The Four Stages of Yoga book discusses her personal journey with yogic healing.

During this conference she will share her knowledge of yoga and healing. Originally trained in Western medicine, she began to blend western medicine with Yoga, offered her expertise in developing the yoga portion of The Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease; and co-founded the award-winning Commonwealth Cancer Help Program. Previously, she spent 25 years as a monastic disciple with world renowned Yogiraj Sri Swami Satchidananda. She is author of The Healing Path of Yoga and founder of Abundant WellBeing in Phoenix, Arizona, and is guest faculty for Ananda University.

In her words: “It is always my intention to help people feel harmonized within and manifest that by feeling well and finding joy.”

Ananda is a worldwide movement to help you realize the joy of your own higher Self. It is based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda and was founded by his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda in 1968.
