As a child, I visited my guru each week in her home, learning of the ancient Indian postures and philosophy. When I turned 16 and completed my Arangetram, she gave me her blessing to begin teaching asana, and also encouraged me to pursue my studies of Neuroscience at Duke and Georgetown.
Today, with 14 years of teaching experience, I am living my dream of integrating the ancient traditions of India with the modern understandings of science. Each of our lessons will be unique, evolving as you do, to guide you to a place of vibrant health on every level.
