Ben’s search for truth began long before coming to yoga, but yoga felt like coming home. His studies include various traditions of yoga, meditation, mysticism, music, philosophy, conflict resolution and sustainable farming- with luminaries such as Richard Freeman, Pdt. Rajamani Tigunait, Dr. Indu Arora, and the maestro Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. He continues to study Para Yoga with his primary teacher Rod Stryker, in the lineage of Sri Vidya. Through these relationships, he has learned that the art of teaching is to inspire a love of practice.
Ben’s teaching is a reflection of his practice – Integrating the breadth and depth of Yoga, Tantra and Ayurveda to support students in their search for Self-Realization. He aspires to transmit yoga that is transformative, authentic, relevant and accessible.
To share this wisdom as a teacher is both a blessing and a great responsibility, as there is no greater service than the work of love. Namaste.
Ben teaches retreats, workshops, teacher trainings, Advanced Yoga Studies programs and public classes. He also specializes in private yoga teaching, including therapeutics, Ayurveda and yogic spiritual guidance.
