Sharmeen Bhanji-Abeysinghe is the Embodied Intuitive Movement Coach who offers opportunities to align your physical, emotional and energetic body so that you can step into your unapologetic, fullest expression of Self. After finding freedom from the grips of childhood and complex trauma stemming from toxic people & environments, Sharmeen has since been supporting others looking to release the effects of toxicity (past or present), gain emotional resilience, inner strength, unshakable confidence & better posture, through her business, My Aligned Life.  

Sharmeen’s life before nurturing and coaching others to free themselves from the effects of chronic stress & toxicity, was that of a registered early childhood educator. Her knowledge of human development, particularly the impact of childhood experiences on the development of human behaviours, beliefs, and emotional wounding, is an absolute asset to her life’s calling helping others. She is the mother of two brilliant school-aged boys and is in a committed loving relationship of over twenty years with her loving and supportive husband, Sanka.
