We sense that there is something profound for us in this thousand year old practice.
But like a deck of playing cards that is missing is few cards, this popular practice never seems to resolve into "shanti" or peace as it promises.

In yoga practice we concentrate on the body, the breath and the mind. Our senses are included as part of the mind. Although it theoretically appears possible for body, breath and mind to work independently of one another, the purpose of yoga is to unity their actions.

It is primarily the physical aspect of the practice that people see as yoga today.

They will rarely notice how we breath, how we feel the breath and how we coordinate our breathing with our physical movement. Most only tend to see our flexibility and suppleness. We want to know how many asanas or postures we have mastered or how many minutes we can stay in headstand.

Much more important than these outer manifestations is the way we feel and the breath.

The yogic principles which thread through all of our courses are ages old & developed by many generations of great yoga teachers. These principles describe in detail the asanas and the breath and, above all, how they relate to each other.

When these principles are included in the yoga practices you do, then your practice will truly become entirely your own: efficient, powerful and safe. 

It becomes your direct participation in the Power and Peace that is Life itself.

It is right there at your fingertips. Let us show you how!



Why Coaching?


In the ancient tradition yoga was shared one-on-one between teacher and student.
In this way the teacher was able to customize the teachings to the needs of the individual student.
If you are passionate about making yoga a real part of your life or interested in learning more about yoga, mantra, meditation and deepening your spirituality, devotional ritual, or to have a yoga practice designed that is right for you

One-On-One Sessions will get you there.

We also offer Life Coaching in developing a healthy lifestyle, strengthening communication skills, setting & achieving goals or breaking old habit patterns and widening your heart to hold compassion for others.

Wherever you are starting from, we are here to meet you where you are and assist you in practices that move you in the direction you wish to go.


Reach out to us for a free 15 minute session to see if private coaching is right for you!
