For several decades I studied with TKV Desikachar and his senior students, receiving an in-depth education on the techniques and underlying principles of Yoga Therapy. Noticing the parallels between Yoga and Positive Psychology, I became a Certified P.P. Coach working to integrate proven Positive Psychology interventions with the time tested tools of classical Yoga Therapy. For over 25 years, as clinical director of the Breathing Space in Los Angeles, I offered ongoing Sutras Studies, Yoga Teacher trainings, and workshops on Bhavana, Relationships, Addiction and Positive Psychology, I’ve facilitated private Yoga Coaching sessions with hundreds of individuals and couples looking to manifest deeply meaningful lives and satisfying relationships. My first book, ‘Why Yoga Works, and How It Can Work For You’ is currently being used as a teacher training manual by Yoga studios worldwide.
