Originally from India growing up in a Sikh family absorbing richness of the spiritual culture infused with community service, prayers and hard work, Naini has been living in New York for most of her life.
Also a devotee and follower of Paramahansa Yogananda and member of Self Realization Fellowship in NYC, Naini has been a lover of meditation and yoga for 35 years. Her honor and joy is to give away free copies of Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda at her events in NYC. Bringing spiritual souls together and introducing meditation to young minds has always been her passion.
Matchmyspirit was founded in 2010 with the idea of creating holistic events and building awareness about health, wellness and spirituality . Naini uses the same philosophy she grew up with - community service as organized in the Sikh temples holding free events , free education and promoting spiritual camaraderie . The network has grown into a robust business with a database of 250k in the New York area. Matchmyspirit has become the pillarstone of the NYC holistic community.
Growing up having spent time in the Himalayas, Naini is obsessed and still intrigued with the astral like beauty of the mountains. She and her husband have a gorgeous country home and retreat center nestled up in the Catskill mountains of Upstate NY. Here they enjoy 'living by the earth' amidst farmlands, fresh mountain air, hiking, gardening and hosting spiritual retreats introducing the NYC community to the peaceful country life.
The love of Western classical music filled with heavenly sounds has been one of the biggest joys in Naini's life. She loves playing the piano and enjoying the depth of soft classical music of everything from Beethoven to Shostakovich.
