There is a lot more to yoga than postures! Yoga is a science, a philosophy of life, an art of living deliberately.


Explore classical yoga philosophy and the spiritual quest with a licensed practitioner and experienced scholar of East-West culture and religion. One-on-one or small group guidance will introduce you to the rich variety of yoga traditions, supplementing your practice with theoretical insight so you may actualize your potential and thrive in fuller and deeper ways. We will connect specific postures with emotional, intellectual, and spiritual becoming in light of traditional yoga science. Each session is tailored to your unique level and interests. Open up meaningful depths and illuminating new horizons in your daily life and spiritual practice.


Also available in person or by phone: philosophico-spiritual counseling and lifestyle consultation for individuals and couples.
