New teachers, new directions


Sri T. Krishnamacharya is considered to be the father of modern Hatha yoga. Four of his students, Indra Devi, Sri Pattabi Jois, BKS Iyengar, and TKV Desikachar are famous world wide. Though having been taught from the same source, the styles of yoga they carried forward are quite different. Hatha is not the only yoga. Yogi Bhajan, from another ancient  root and source in White Tantra brought Kundalini yoga from India to the west. Its unique forms of practice have proven themselves in the lives of teachers and students. All of this is leading up to redirecting your interest in the three new teachers. Each brings their own unique history via their training and practice to your class.

Faith, Monday evenings, vinyasa, a radiant lightness of joy and movement because of her background in dance;

Dexter,  Thursday early birdhatha, physically powerful and spiritually seeking realization through breath and movement;

Doris, Sunday mornings, kundalini, skilled and practiced musician bringing transformation to your class through a finely tuned and inspired discipline and aesthetic.

Please support these new teachers. Each has jumped into this ancient stream that brings youthfulness, wellness and liberation.
