I’m committed to sharing the teachings of Integral Yoga as authentically as they have been passed down to me.
I created Hersha Yoga because I have a passion for teaching yoga to people of all ages and abilities. It’s a discipline that helps anyone live a happier life. I have seen many of my students save their marriages, reduce their dependency on mood-enhancers, speak their truth, believe in themselves more and have the courage to choose the path of peace above all else.
I’m just one person, but if I can share this system of living with all who are interested to teach yoga and serve those who need it most, imagine what we can achieve if we all work together?
I was blessed to study yoga with a Master, Sri Swami Satchidananda. In fact, I was born into a family of devotees. My father was my first Integral Yoga Hatha teacher, my mother an example of Karma Yoga. Yoga has been a part of my life as long as I can remember.
I was certified to teach in 2002 at Satchidananda Ashram: Yogaville. I spent most of 2003 living and serving at Integral Yoga Institute in Tamil Nadu, South India. Each year, I invest in my continuing education and personal development with this lineage in order to deepen my experience and to constantly grow, learn and teach.
The lifestyle of yoga has shown me the path of living a balanced, happy and meaningful life. I’m so grateful to all my teachers and mentors throughout this journey. There are too many to mention by name, but I am ever grateful to all of them.
Today, I’m an authorised yoga teacher trainer for Integral Yoga’s Basic Hatha, Intermediate Hatha and Raja Yoga programs. All three combined provides 500-hours of training. I also offer Accessible Prenatal Yoga teacher training and host Yoga for the Special Child teacher training every year.
I also offer continuing education programs in Accessible Yoga and Kidding Around Yoga. I believe that combined, these programmes offer a winning combination for bringing yoga to people from all backgrounds, ages and abilities. Graduates of my trainings become knowledgable, compassionate and professional yoga teachers.
