About the Presenters

Dr. Yasmene Mumby began her yoga and meditation practice eleven years ago while teaching middle school Social Studies in Baltimore City Public Schools. She was looking for a natural way to calm her rushing anxiety and restore her energy. She has completed over 800 hours of training in vinyasa, meditation, yin, and prenatal yoga through the guidance of instructors Sid McNairy, Naomi P. Fox, Brandon Compagnone, Sharon Brenes, and Anjali Sunita.

Anjali Sunita is the founder of Village Life Wellness, a private Ayurveda practice and Baltimore Yoga Village, a community educational platform, who creates environments and opportunities for individual and community dialogue and wellness. She supports programs in practices like pranayama, meditation, asana, chanting, Ayurveda, and yoga history. Anjali has integrated knowledge from her beloved teachers and shares it with a great love for making the teachings accessible, easily understood, and applicable to each person she encounters. She teaches throughout the world and has founded and nurtures a non-profit program, which supports and compensates teachers of color in offering free weekly yoga in Baltimore City.
