Yoga is an ancient practice, originating in India, that includes guidelines for moral conduct and an aspiration to find the true Self. There are 8 limbs of yoga which every sadakah, yoga practitioner, will observe in order to find the true Self. Hatha class is based primarily on the 3rd and 4th limbs of yoga and focuses on the physical body. These are the asana or postures and the pranayama or life energy which is primarily developed through breathing exercises.

I am a 2008 graduate from North Carolina School of Yoga’s 200 hr teacher training program. There I studied postures, breathing, and traditional yogic life style under guidance of Chandra Om and her disciples. Since the basic training I have gone back to NCSY, now the Shanti Niketan Ashram, for intensive weekend studies in Children’s Yoga Teacher Training, Yoga Anatomy and Therapeutics, as well as Prenatal Yoga. I have also participated in Lila Wilson’s weekend workshop “Yoga for Teens”, Michelle Wing’s “It’s Yoga Kids Certification Course”, as well as The Art of Yoga Project’s teacher training for classrooms with at-risk and exploited teen girls.

I am currently teaching both youth and adult classes in the Bay Area. For a complete schedule please take a look at the calendar.
