Sheena Patel, founder of Savsani, witnessed a great opportunity in the preventive care industry and to-date has become a collaborative leader in bringing innovative wellness solutions to companies, luxury properties and professional athletes, seeking adjustments to their lifestyles. A nationally ranked pentathlon champion, Sheena began to realize the influence yoga and meditation had on her athletic abilities from a young age. Although she turned down a full-athletic scholarship at a Division One university to pursue her interest in Technology at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Sheena soon realized there was a great need for preventive work-life balance in corporate settings. With her successes in athletics and years of experience in corporate America, Sheena felt she was best qualified to help individuals of varied backgrounds to rejuvenate their personal goals through a simpler, organic, and holistic approach. This transition began when she started teaching Stress Management and Nutrition courses at Massachusetts Institute of Technology as well as founded a Registered Yoga School accredited by Yoga Alliance. For over a decade, Sheena has become the advocate for preventive care, and has achieved her personal best by helping those around her.
From humble beginnings by teaching yoga studios, today Sheena has become synonymous with leading institutions such as Massachusetts General Hospital and Massachusetts Institute of Technology for her inspired guidance and undisputed expertise.
Mani Savsani, Sheena’s grandmother and Guru, was the origin to start Savsani. Mani has always embodied true happiness and love for all. Her teachings flowed from her direct knowledge of life through Bhakti Yoga (love, faith and surrender), Karma Yoga (process of achieving perfection through action), Raja Yoga (physical and mental strength), and Ayurveda (ancient eastern medicine). Growing up Sheena was very fortunate to have another teacher, her uncle Kishore Mama, who introduced her to the world of Jnana Yoga (Knowledge of Self). Sheena has learnt the true philosophy of life by watching her grandmother’s wise actions filled with fundamental values. Sheena has focused these teachings into a comprehensive format while staying true to the ancient wisdom of Vedic philosophy. Together with over 100+ years of knowledge and experience; Savsani has created a three-pillar program to create perfect harmony of an individual.
