Holistic Well-Being Visionary – Yoga Science and Meditation Master
Kedarji is a citizen supporter of community health freedom and a contributor to our content. He is also the founder of the Community Action Council in Mahoning County, Ohio.
Kedarji grew up in two traditions; that of a spiritual lineage of ascetics and spiritual leaders in the field of Yoga Science/Meditation, and that of holistic health and healing. He has merged his spiritual leadership with his more than thirty years experience as a holistic health/healing practitioner and coach. This offering is now shared in what he has framed as his 4 Pillars of Total Well-Being; The Spiritual Power, Improved Mental State, Emotional Resilience and Vibrant Health. His approach and methods are backed by a great deal of peer-reviewed, evidence-based research and the case studies conducted with students who have attended his programs and courses of study and application, tracked over periods of 3-5 years or more.
He is the Founder of The Bhakta School of Transformation, an Ohio-based not-for-profit public charity devoted to lasting Inner Peace and Well-Being. (See his media coverage)
The curriculum offering at The Bhakta School includes study in Yoga Science, Meditation and Spirituality along with holistic well-being coaching, plant-based nutrition coaching and holistic healing practitioner certification.

After graduating from University, Kedarji was trained in community organizing during his work as a representative and community advocate for Columbia Tenants Union. He spent several years assisting then President of CTU, Bruce Bailey, who was his mentor in community organizing. During this period, he organized rent strikes, street protests and campaigns to educate public officials in the state legislature – all against the ‘gangland’ tactics Columbia University employed against tenants to force them out of their apartments in order to gain rent increases for student housing. Many of the prior tenants forced out of their homes were elderly people. All of this culminated in court cases in which Columbia University was forced to comply with the law and protect tenants rights.
Later, Kedarji organized block associations and block patrols to address very high crime in the theater district of New York City where he lived at the time. After mounting public protests and marches on One Police Plaza, his engagement with local law enforcement, Congressional representatives and the New York state legislature resulted in cleaning up crime in the area. This included taking back buildings being used to house criminal activities and converting those buildings into havens for family and community activities.
