I believe the teachings of Yoga when well-integrated can efficiently help to raise more people's consciousness on and off the mat. An integration which includes a mindful approach to the inner and outer form of the postures, the study of ancient indian philosophies, meditation practice and chanting. Therefore, my service is to channel these teachings offering healing tools of transformation, compassion and change.
Some of my earliest memories are of my mother chanting mantras before meals, sitting with her meditation group at our home, and joining her Hatha yoga asana lessons at Yoga Sampoorna (her sweet yoga shala). She provided me with a foundation in yogic philosophy, vegetarianism and taught me how to be a conscious human being.
