Yali Szulanski, M.A., is a mother to two amazing kids - Zoey and Eliezer. She is a teacher and the founder of The “I Am” Project (www.iamproject.co), through which students integrate contemplative and mind-body-spirit practices into their classrooms and lives in accessible and practical ways. As a survivor of trauma and in recovery from an eating disorder now for 10 years, Yali has used her struggles and healing to inform her studies and work. Her personal experiences enable her to speak and teach with compassion and understanding. Yali continuously works to deepen the connection between her work and her learnings in the spiritual evolution throughout childhood and adolescence - and its integration with traditional systems of education. Yali creates spaces in which people can safely explore their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Yali works with groups in the classroom, runs workshops for parents and teachers, and works with people of all ages and origins individually.
