Jaishree’s first career was as a classically trained actor, studying at the Stella Adler Conservatory in New York City, earning a BFA with minor in Ethics & Eastern/Western Religion via New York University. Having worked with her Actor’s Equity Association and Screen Actors Guild certifications since 1998, she left New York for a few years to work in Los Angeles, CA. The veil came down and she could no longer honor that vision, and so she returned to Massachusetts in 2006, devoting her time to service and becoming a full time teacher in 2007. Her first 200hr certification was with Baron Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga. She has since spent over 300 certification hours with her cherished teacher Shiva Read Prana Vinyasa/Samudra. Jai’s honored to have studied with many of the worlds pre-eminent yoga teachers over the past 20 years in immersion style.
Every week from 2007-2012, Jaishree studied with her intentional wisdom coach to heal her egoic mind, while experimenting with many natural medicine practices to heal her broken body. Since 2009 she has spent countless hours of bhakti yoga vedanta study with master teachers in India, Africa, and the United States via the International Pure Bhakti Yoga Society, under the guidance of His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja in the Gaudiya Vaisnava Sampradaya lineage.
Jaishree channeled the ascension healing process Soul Mapping™ through her own lifetime experience of living with chronic migraine pain, not only surviving but awakening into the true vibrancy of her unique soul’s blueprint. She has cultivated that in private coaching full time since 2007. She offers her unlimited obeisances to her first gurus, her devoted and loving parents, as well as her beloved Srila Gurudeva. She appreciates this human birth so much, and loves life in the Goddess lane.
