Our group's primary goal is to promote mental wellness by introducing yoga and meditation as a healthier way to manage stress. We aim to empower students to develop and maintain a relaxed, stress-free mind along with an energetic, healthy body so that we all achieve more and better as an individual and as a community.

    Nealofar Madani

    President

    Nealofar is a senior undergraduate student at OSU studying Public Health Sociology with a minor in pharmaceutical sciences. She is what Iranians call the ultimate shekamoo (foodie).

    A fire was ignited in her to spread meditation to others when she noticed the profound impact it had on her own life. She was able to be her most natural (happy) and authentic self! She realized that with a calm and relaxed mind, all answers come automatically and that is a gift!

    Sanjana Rajan

    Vice President

    Sanjana is graduate professional student in the Molecular and Cellular Biology program at OSU. She is passionate, caring, enjoys connecting with people and has a vision to create a warm and loving community for everyone at OSU. In her downtime you’ll find her singing or running experiments in the kitchen. She found the SKY community in the first year of graduate school and wants to share this message with her fellow buckeyes - "If we can find ways to manage our minds, we can stay happy irrespective of what is thrown at us."
