Tracy Verma Bio:
Ananda Ashram has been my spiritual home for 43 years. Rev. Kim Lesley and I hope to become Board Members to secure the ashram’s bright future. I envision recruiting/ engaging new or lapsed members/supporters, especially Roop’s worldwide network of students and my yoga students. I gained Yoga Teacher certification from Swami Naranda in 1989. I teach at Friends of Recovery, Hartwick College and my home studio, encompassing youths to seniors. As organizer/ fundraiser, I worked with India Darshan to secure state grants, collaborate with diverse community members and bring ashram teachers to present/perform at local colleges. As an engineer I did an energy audit of the ashram. I assisted Roop to create and maintain the E-W School of Music. I manage apartments, run a home business. I’m Assistant Treasurer of Oneonta’s Unitarian Church. I’m steeped in yogic lifestyle, established from 6+ years of attending Guruji’s satsangs while living at Ananda.
