The essential teaching I learned with Integral Yoga master Swami Satchidananda was how to practice yoga to have an ‘easeful body, peaceful mind and useful life’.
First yoga and then meditation had and continue to have a profound and transformational impact in my life, and so I am passionate about sharing this transformational potential with others.
I have explored and experimented with different types of yoga and meditation, and have found that the simple forms of classic yoga and meditation are both what I most naturally resonate with, and they can also be more immediately accessible to people new to these practices.
