SAKSHI JOANNE BANUELOS
Sakshi Joanne Banuelos volunteers as Student Coordinator for Vedika’s Spiritual Studies Program. She integrates new students into the program and supports continuing students on an ongoing basis. She has studied with Acharya Shunya since 2014.
Sakshi recently retired from working as a mechanical drafter for many years in the medical laser field. She has an associate degree in engineering and completed a 500 hour yoga teacher training with YES instructor Joyce Anue, as well as meditation training at the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment (CSE).
Prior to coming to Vedika, she spent 15 years volunteering at CSE as a temple greeter, helping in the community kitchen, teaching yoga, cleaning the grounds and painting walls as part of community cleanup days.
Sakshi feels inspired by the generosity of Acharya Shunya’s teachings and particularly for the way they are recorded and offered to students weekly as part of Vedika’s Spirtual Studies Program. She is grateful for all the gifts of knowledge she has received in the form of spiritual studies and a whole new of taking of herself, her family and friends through the plants, herbs and recipes she’s learned in the Ayurveda Ancestral Herbal classes. She looks forward to continuing to contribute in whatever ways she can for many years to come.
