Anjali Soi

ASoiAnjali believes in understanding people and situations holistically and brings valuable lessons in balance and harmony to her work as a mediator and facilitator. She is also a counseling astrologer who provides life, relationship and career guidance and mediates conflicts through the lens of astrology when requested. As a lifelong learner, she is passionate about education and tutors high school students for the SAT exam.

Dance has been her lifelong passion and is ultimately what she uses to process life and learn deeper levels of harmony. She enjoys creating and performing with local artists and together they have created well-received and highly appreciated experiences in the Pittsburgh community. She grew up training in Indian Classical Dance (Bharatanatyam), later learned Flamenco and has choreographed numerous Bhangra folk dances for festivals, weddings, nonprofit and special events.

“The dynamics and movements in dance create harmonies, or agreements in mediation, that decrease tension and produce tranquility. As the dance unfolds, increasing levels of balance with opportunities for expression and authenticity are achieved.”
