The Banyan Tree Wellness Center

A Lali Inspiration

Banyan Tree Wellness Center believes in supporting the holistic individual. Rather than viewing health as only physical, we believe that we must equally focus on our spiritual, social, and emotional selves within a community setting.

We understand the impact our experiences  have on our emotions, and aim to build an environment that encourages women and children to process their own  experiences, uncover emotions, build community, and gain resiliency and hope moving forward.

In Honor of Lali Reddy

Lali LOVED life.  She found beauty in everyone and everything.  She loved music, food, dancing, and travel and she experienced all of it.  She never sat anything out.  Mention something fun, and she either tried it or was willing to.  Singing and dancing to music while cooking for friends and family was her happy place.

Most importantly, Lali had this uncanny ability to see straight into your soul and find the beauty and truth in us all.  She made those around her feel safe, protected, and loved. Her hope would be that you can see your own beauty and significance to this world.  Her prayer would be that you find strength in knowing that you are not alone.

When you look at the Banyan Tree, you see so many trunks that support it, keeping it strong and connected.  Lali lovingly supported, encouraged, and cared for everyone around her, and now we hope this award can do the same for you. Just as your teacher/advisor/mentor clearly sees how amazing you are, you also have the support of the Banyan Tree family, Lali’s family, who believes you are perfect exactly the way you are and we hope that you lean on us and others if ever in need.
