Jyliani Ma'at Brown

Meditation Teacher
As one born into a family of educators and medical practitioners, jylani ma’at’s background as both a teacher and a nurse came as no surprise. She inherited a legacy of traditional and alternative healing practices. Since a very young age, jylani has been engaged in meditation, holistic wellness and embodied awareness practices. As a teenager, she found herself making deep spiritual connections in nature and with stillness. She has continued along this path ever since. When jylani became a mother, she realized just how important it was to be disciplined about her daily practice in order to stay balanced and healthy. She has an affinity for guiding people toward wellness modalities that connect with and through the body using all of their senses. jylani believes taking deliberate moments needs to feel authentic and comfortable so that people may practice regularly and live a life of greater ease. Jylani shared her meditation and integrative health practices with all her clients - those in medical facilities as well as those in community. It was typical to share brief moments in meditation with home-care clients before administering medications or to set positive intentions before treatments. Before long, the clients began to enjoy the practices and expressed deeper feelings of wellness. (optional) On this 20+ year journey, jylani ma’at has trained and taught meditation, mindfulness, movement and integrative nutrition in schools, studios and communities around the world. She enjoys learning healing practices from indigenous cultures. Admittedly, her Yoga Nidra Teacher Training with Tracee Stanley and Chanti Tocoronte-Perez, was by far the deepest and most embodied experience of her life. It was the purest example of using the body, breath and stillness to achieve deep levels of inner peace, resilience, strength and radiance.
