Nalanie Harilela Chellaram is a modern spiritual teacher, a true Soul Doctor dedicated to selfless service.
She was born in 1954 into the distinguished Indian family, the Harilela’s.
She grew up in the presence of a close family friend who, unbeknown at the time, was to have a deep and lasting influence in her life.
This frequent visitor and friend was Swami Satchidananda, her beloved Guru.
Nalanie travels the world to spread a message of wisdom, compassion and love, based on the philosophy of Yoga.
She is the founder of the Integral Yoga Centre Gibraltar and George Harilela Hall in Sotogrande, and gives Satsangs both there and internationally.
In March 2008, Nalanie received an Honour in Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second New Year’s Honour’s List. She was recognised for her ‘Services to Humanity’.
In October that year she also received a “Humanitarian Award” from the Satchidananda Ashram in Virginia, USA.
In 2009 Nalanie set up an association called “Service in Satchidananda”, a non-profit international collective of charities established in honour of Sri Swami Satchidananda and based on his core teaching of selfless service.
