In 1987 Sodashi began practicing Kundalini Sadhana under Swami Chetanananda. She studied with him for 13 years, then continued her practice with Swami Khecaranatha (known as Nathaji to his students), at the TrikaShala center located in Berkeley, CA. Swami Khecaranatha has also been her life partner since 1991.

A longing to meditate arose in me in the spring of 1987 and within two weeks my first teacher appeared. Swami Chetanananda’s glance and touch awakened a fire in me that continues to burn more strongly each day. It is fueled both through my own effort and commitment and through Nathaji's loving support and grace.
