Hi there, I’m Anjali. I’m a yogi, certified personal trainer, solo practice attorney and freelance writer.

I know – those are a lot of hats! Well, I’m the type of person that loves wearing all those hats.

I believe strongly in “improvement through movement” – and that’s everything. Be it general fitness, weight loss, overall wellbeing, happiness, introspection: I think so many things about our lives can be improved through movement and self-expression – including just moving forward! This is one of the reasons I love teaching yoga and training fitness clients.

My yogic philosophy is to take what works for you and leave what doesn’t. My family is Indian and though I grew up with a lot of traditional yogic philosophy from my dad, I feel about yoga like I feel about most philosophies and religions of the world: there are some really, really great parts, and then there are some parts that don’t make a lot of sense to me. So with yoga, just like with anything else in my life, I believe in getting all the good you can from it and leaving the parts that don’t work for you.

I teach in a rebel, vinyasa style, with an emphasis on free-flowing movement linked to breath. I also believe in and teach barefoot fitness, or the idea that you don’t need a lot of equipment and a huge gym to get as fit as possible. For fitness outside yoga, I tend to stick to bodyweight movements as much as possible for both strength and flexibility.

Now about my practice: my specialty is intellectual property through my law firm, NowakowskiLaw.com. I do brand protection, trademark and copyright registrations, and IP agreements, including web agreements.

My freelance work has been seen in the following outlets, among others:

My specialty in my personal writing is politics & social justice – I write about veganism, women’s rights, politics, racial issues, sexual culture, and professional culture. I also write a lot about personal development, travel, and relationships, especially being married to my best friend.

All of my writing, though, just like all of me, is about love.

Some boring resume stuff: I attended NYU Stern School of Business, obtaining my Bachelor’s in Marketing and International Business and then NYU School of Law, where I received my J.D. I am also Hubspot Inbound Marketing Certified and have my Diploma in Social Media Marketing from Alison online. I got my 500-Hour YTT from Heartwood Retreat Center in Bradenton, FL and I’m a certified personal trainer with NASM.
