This is it. I’m finally doing something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. After a lot of research, life reorganization, and soul searching, I’ve cemented my plans to travel to Rishikesh, India—the Holy City—in March 2024 to study Yoga and deepen my relationship with my practice and with holistic medicine.

This will be a pilgrimage for me. Yoga has been a passion and a healing tool for me for the past two decades. I have wanted to take my teacher training for a long time in order to incorporate Yoga and its incredible healing benefits into my work—but something always has come up.

No more. The time is now!

This voyage will include a 28-day Course at Pyramid Yoga Shala, a beautiful Ashram at the base of the Himalayan Mountain near the Holy River Ganga. I will go deep into the spiritual and traditional teachings of Yoga as well as study Vinyasa, Hatha, and Ayurvedic Medicine.

When my training is complete, I plan on bringing my knowledge back to you all by incorporating the healing and spiritual practices of Yoga into my Nature Retreats.

For a fuller understanding of why I made this decision, please consider engaging with the literature that has changed my life: Hatha Yoga Pradipika by Swami Muktibodhananda and The Yamahs and Niyamahs, Exploring Yogas Ethical Practice by Deborah Adele.
