Breathe depth into your yoga teaching and practice with mythology!

Well…I literally wrote the book! 😀 In addition to that, my background in yoga spans nearly two decades, and I have been leading teacher trainings for 15 years. I have written three books on the field of yoga including Myths of the Asanas, Sacred Sound and Yoga Beyond the Mat. I also have a Ph.D. focused on this material and my expertise includes mythology, alchemy, depth psychology and yoga. I integrate all these into my understanding of yoga to develop a complete, integrative approach that brings the ancient practice into modern life.
