About Djali


A Native New Yorker from Inwood/Washington Heights, Djali is a writer, DJ, yoga instructor, and creative.

In 2016, she directed, produced, and hosted reign(a), an original web series she created for Mass Appeal where she spoke to female and female-identifying persons who challenge cookie-cutter definitions of feminism.

Djali, a Nike Women's Influencer, received her RYT-200 yoga certification from Sacred Sounds Yoga in 2014, and is developing her own brand of the practice focusing on flexibility. Djali's flexibility-centered classes, accompanied by a neosoul andafrobeat playlist, reinforce the notion that through challenge, patience, and receptivity, anything is possible.


A graduate of the Eugene Lang College at the New School University, Djali has also contributed to ROOKIE and Galore, and co-founded SDA (Students Decolonizing Academia), a student organization born from the ashes of SNCC, the Young Lords, and the Chicano Movement at the New School University.
