About Farah

BIO of Farah Moolji Nazarali BA, MA, RYT

Farah Moolji Nazarali is the Founder and Producer of Drishti Point Yoga Podcasts and The Smiling Yogi, a small Vancouver-based business dedicated to spreading joy, health and wellness. After a Bachelors degree in Political Science (McGill 1995) and a graduate degree in Latin American Studies (George Washington 2000), and after more than 15 years of teaching and spiritual study, Farah has realized the power for change in the world lies within each individual and has found the practice of yoga to be transformative in clearing the mind, cultivating present-moment awareness, and generating harmony and happiness in mind, body, and heart.

Yoga has transformed my body, my mind, my relationships, and everything about my life. Yoga is not something I do or teach. Yoga is who I am and how I show up in my life. Most of all, through yoga, I am able to cultivate a sense of harmony and happiness that is not dependent on anyone or anything. Happiness, peace, and joy are an inside job and yoga has been the path to get me there.

Since 2005, Farah has studied under the guidance of Vishwaguru Sri Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda, founder of Yoga in Daily Life, and she has attended dozens of yoga retreats in Canada, India, Fiji, and Eastern Europe.

For the last 10 years, Farah has dedicated over 2,280 volunteer hours to establishing Drishti Point Yoga Podcasts which promotes wisdom teachings that are universal and inclusive.  The common thread in over 400 podcasts is that all paths lead us to service and to Love.

In 2011, Farah studied Non-Violent Communication, and in 2016, she enrolled in the Certificate Program in Conflict Resolution at the Justice Institute to further enhance her skills in communication and conflict.

Farah currently offers Yoga Mentoring, Spiritual Coaching, and Trainings and Workshops.


What inspired me to hire Farah for spiritual coaching was my experience of being in her presence.  Farah is one of those rare individuals who really walks her talk; she truly lives and demonstrates her values.  She radiates love, compassion, kindness, helpfulness and maintains a sense of calm grace and endless good humour.  

I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Farah as my coach.   She introduced me to, and provided the foundation for the pursuit of yoga as a spiritual path.  That path is   now the main focus of my life and a source of joy and contentment beyond anything I could have imagined.   It is as a result of her compassionate, diligent and loving guidance that I now find myself demonstrating many of the behaviours, values and qualities that first attracted me to work with Farah.    – Erica Pinsky
