Working with Dr. Deepak Chopra

Traysi and Tom met at a meditation retreat with Dr. Deepak Chopra, at The Chopra Center for Wellbeing, in San Diego, California. They call Dr. Chopra their Meditation Matchmaker!

Although, they came from very different backgrounds, Traysi and Tom were both inspired to become Certified Chopra Instructors in Meditation and Ayurveda. They married soon after, then worked for many years as Meditation Instructors at The Chopra Center.

"Traysi and Tom are a power couple, that bring love into the room."

- Rev. Christian Sorenson,

Director of the Center for Spiritual Living, Encinitas, CA

The Chopra Center

Tom and Traysi had many wonderful adventures at the Chopra Center, over the years.

As instructors at the Chopra Center, Traysi and Tom had the opportunity to assist in the training of other Chopra Certified Instructors, as well as, lead regular group meditations of the guests and staff.

Traysi also worked with the Ayurvedic Doctors at the Chopra Center, where she gave follow-up Ayurvedic Consultations to the guests.

The Chopra Center for Wellbeing

They especially loved assisting with the many amazing Chopra Meditation Retreat Events, that were held regularly at the beautiful La Costa Resort, where up to 600 guests would attend.

It was at these events, they were be able to meet and learn from many extraordinary guest teachers, such as, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Rev. Michael Beckwith, Marianne Williamson, Neale Donald Walsch, and many more. 

It was a glorious experience to be part of the amazing Chopra family!

Rishikesh, India

In 2021, Traysiah went to Rishikesh, India for several months, where she had the opportunity to work with the world-renowned spiritual leader, Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati, at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram, which is on the banks of the Ganges River, at the foothills of the Himalayas.

The Rishikesh area is where Yoga and Meditation originated thousands of years ago, and Traysiah had the great honor of being a regular meditation instructor at the ashram. She was also a videographer and editor for several videos for Sadhviji. (More pictures from this grand adventure.)
