"Your own Self realization is the greatest gift you can render to the world." -Sri Ramana Maharshi
THE ART OF AWARENESS & ENGAGEMENT
Yoga is a holistic framework to support integrated growth, well-being, and self-realization. Its gifts are many, from increased physical energy and vitality, to greater capacity to navigate the ups and downs of life with equanimity and ease. The heart of the teachings point to awakening and liberation from maya (delusion/illusion), and it offers a system of practice to support this process.
As a teacher of yoga, I offer classes, workshops, and trainings that focus on the core teachings and transmission, and which integrate yoga asana (physical practice and postures), pranayama (breathwork), yogic and Tantric philosophy, Hindu mythology, mantra (chanting), and meditation.
Yoga is accessible to all individuals seeking greater self-awareness and well-being, and I am honored to be both a student and teacher of this path.

EVENTS & INTENSIVES
For dedicated practitioners and teachers, this advanced training offers the opportunity to deepen your connection to the practice of yoga so its gifts can more fully blossom in your life. Over six months, you will be supported in an experiential deep dive into the essence of the teachings – exploring yogic & Tantric philosophy, Hindu mythology, subtle body anatomy, asana refinement, mantra, pranayama, and how it all translates off the mat. While the framework of inquiry is through the yogic lens, ultimately what it points to transcends tradition. As such, we will engage the forms to see beyond them, and explore what it means to be a modern day yogi.
