I have been teaching and studying yoga, mantra, meditation, theology, psychology and esoteric philosophy since 2004. My teachers and students have taught me a great deal over the years. I am an E-RYT Yoga Teacher with over 10,000 hours of teaching, a Reverend and Certified Teacher of Sanskrit Mantra with Namadeva Acharya / Sanatana Dharma Satsang, an initiate of Maharishi’s TM, Babaji’s Kundalini Kriya Yoga, Yogi Bhajan’s White Tantric Yoga and Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine.  I am currently studying Somatic Experiencing Trauma Therapy with Peter Levine’s SETI Institute and Foundation for Human Enrichment.​​​​

Not long after I started teaching I fell in love with another element of yoga – Sanskrit Mantra (mind-free). These are scientific sound formulas based on vibrations that activate certain parts of the subtle anatomy.  You can use mantra for anything from health & prosperity to cleaning out old stuck patterns and negative energies.  I have been holding satsangs and kirtans using Sanskrit Mantra since 2005.  This is devotional singing – with music, gong, meditation.  Our kirtan band Dharma Sound has opened for many great teachers and events including Swami Kenananda, Guru Soorya, Ganga Nath.  We love Kirtan!
