Giuliana Cassataro was born with a strong need for creativity and has always been drawn to the arts in all forms. She started drawing from the time she could hold a pencil and it has been a consistent form of creative expression ever since. She studied fashion and illustration at The Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC and has worked in the fashion industry.
She was led to the Yoga Den in 1999 where she met Tahji and Sataji and fell in love with yoga. Under Sataji’s loving guidance she went onto complete her yoga teacher training at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center and her Yoga of the Heart training with Nischala Joy Devi. Yoga, meditation and the arts have been central to Giuliana’s health, healing and happiness.
She is currently working on different creative projects, including writing and illustrating children’s books.Giuliana on Instagram
