I've been involved with Yoga education since 2000 - through teaching classes, workshops, leading retreats and at professional trainings (YTT). My innovative curriculums have been featured at a number of trainings at the 200 and 500hr level, especially around the integration of traditional yoga, medicine and the subtle body.

I value personal retreat as training ground, but as a parent and clinician I've come to recognize secular healing, engaged Buddhism and yoga therapy as rewarding models of practice. I've taken the last five years reassessing and refining approaches to how these traditional models relate with contemporary scientific and therapeutic achievements. Our own culturo-historic context provides for a meaningful and rich discovery of hybrid forms, technologies and approaches.

The integration of the wisdom of these currents of healing and transformation reflects an exciting and hopeful impasse.

Courses and Training Segments

Our teaching focus has shifted from study of traditional yoga shastra, to applied and interdisciplinary study. The methods of traditional yoga of India, China and Tibet find unique application in the context of healing, psychotherapies, contemplative neuroscience and Asian Medicine.

Hatha Yoga, shamatha, vipassana, qigong and neidan, and the like are appreciated in their cultural contexts of practice. Increasingly, academics and scholars continue to expand and diversify our knowledge in these areas. Prior to integration, engagement with traditional forms - with their unique views of the body, epistemologies of healing and claims are to tested through practice. 

As contemporary practitioners, we might also invite our own distinct methodologies of discourse, so that we might better understand the particular issues of our own embodiment, our unique times and establish meaning in the contexts of our lives.
