Gayathri Narayanan is the founder of Myndtree and has been teaching mindfulness and meditation to adults and teens in the Bay Area since 2012. She has had a personal meditation, yoga and contemplative practice for over 20 years and has seen the invaluable benefits they have brought to her own life. Her passion to share these teachings and practices with others is driven by a longing to see more ease, well-being and harmony in the world.
Her journey into this realm began in 2010 when after a 14-year career in healthcare information technology, she shifted lanes to begin exploring mindfulness and nonviolence in parenting. She is a Certified Parent Educator (CPE) from Echo Parenting and Education and a Certified Mindfulness Meditation Teacher (CMMT) through UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center. She became a Certified Mindfulness Teacher - Professional (CMT-P) with the International Mindfulness Teachers Association (IMTA) in July 2020. Gayathri also holds a Masters degree in Information Systems from the University of Southern California.
She lives in Palo Alto with her husband and two kids who are her joy and inspiration.
