Rimi Chakraborty and Samantha Anderson have come together to create
Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience

We share a love for nature, a belief in the strength of embodied conscious leadership, and a commitment to a life of sustainability, health and wellness. We have come together in search of our authentic selves, connected by love for the earth that we respect and revere. Together, and in the words of Sharon Blackie, "we rise up, rooted like trees... (to) save not only ourselves, but the world."


Rimi finds joy in guiding high performing individuals and companies to true health and real success, living in harmony with our planet, community and ourselves. Rimi blends her former business world and acumen as an SVP in a management consultant firm, with authentic leadership, presence and mind-body integration to foster a new paradigm of leadership.

Rimi provides leadership consulting for groups, teams, and individuals by exploring personal and professional values and (re)defining metrics of success. She customizes mindful leadership frameworks that align vision + mission with purpose, based on a holistic framework that encourages a structured exploration of professional and personal topics.  

Rimi holds a B.S.E. from the University of Pennsylvania and an M.B.A. from MIT Sloan School of Management as well as various certifications in Forrest Yoga, Yin Yoga, Energy Healing, Energy Medicine, and Yoga for Trauma. She is the co-founder of MINUVIDA AZORES, an immersive travel and learning experiences business in São Miguel, Azores.

Rimi teaches yoga and mindfulness across the globe and online, drawing from over 20 years of personal practice. She has customized mindfulness programs and courses for the University of Toronto, for management teams of various  private and public companies, and is the founder of the Mindful Business Leader course.
