Living the practice of yoga.



My Teaching

Emphasis on Yoga Philosophy

My teaching is built on a strong foundation of traditional yogic philosophy. All innovations are built on the bedrock of tremendous commitment to the truths of yoga. My teaching is an approach to practice rather than focused on a specific style. In class, philosophical concepts are explored in an embodied way through physical practice.

Living Yoga in the World

My greatest commitment is to living the practice of yoga in the world, and teaching others to do the same. What we practice on rubber rectangles in studios and serene spaces is just the start. It’s the practice for the practice— where we hone the skills of yoga with lower stakes in the hopes of bringing them outside. The poses are impersonal and archetypal situations that are a clearer mirror for our patterns so we may see them with less clouding when we’re in our lives.

Commitment to Practice

Yoga teaches us that everything is about relationship.
My yoga practice is a decade old and I see how much that relationship has taught and is still teaching me. How it holds a mirror to my life and asks me who I'm being and who I really am. Relationships will do that. There have been ups and downs, but ultimately all for my own becoming even when really challenging.

The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures, but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.
— T.K.V. Desikachar

 Ojas Ayurvedic Kitchen

Ojas Ayurvedic Kitchen is an eating experience carefully crafted to have a particular effect on your body, mind, and spirit. We’re four friends with expertise in Yoga & Ayurveda here to rebel against distraction & disconnection through slow, seasonal eating, even in a busy city.

In that spirit, we’ve been hosting four-course Ayurvedic feasts at Fenway fav restaurant, Mei Mei. Each colorful veggie-centric course is served up alongside Ayurvedic information on ingredient selection and impact of the food on your body and mind. We source locally as often as possible, and pick ingredients to sync you with the rhythms of nature.
