Parayoga Level 1 Certified Teacher and Certified Four Desires Trainer, E-RYT 200 RYT 500 Palm Beach, FL, USA

I feel so fortunate to have been guided and inspired by Yogarupa Rod Stryker for over 10 years! Who knew that day long seminar at a YJ conference in 2013 would launch me down this path?

Studying ParaYoga – with its practical and life changing practice approach, has touched my heart and brings immeasurable value and beauty into every aspect of my life. To share this with students is what inspires me to teach!

Level 2 certification is on my horizon, along with work as a Four Desires trainer. Learning and continuing to work with the knowledge Yogarupa has shared with us in his Four Desires book and trainings, has helped shape my life in the most positive, powerful way! It is rewarding and very exciting to help guide others toward living the best expression of their life.

In 2012, I completed the Himalayan Institute Ayurveda Yoga Specialist training along with further training to be able to teach the AYS modules at Himalayan Institute and in studios that offer the AYS training. My Ayurveda study continues with Dr Rosy Mann from Kripalu’s school of Ayurveda and fellow Parayogi Kathryn Templeton. Next year I will complete this 650 hr program to become an Ayurveda Health Counselor. My Pitta nature is always on fire to learn more and it is so valuable to have this extensive Ayurveda knowledge to add to my ParaYoga tool box!

Shri Life Yoga studio in Palm Beach Gardens FL is home base.

Join me there for ParaYoga classes, Meditation practice and instruction, a weekly Yoga Nidra class and Ayurveda workshops. At Shri Life, we offer an innovative year long teacher training and mentorship program. The owners of Shri Life – Leah Carver and Sara Eaveson – are ParaYoga students – they have created a welcoming and beautiful studio filled with ParaYoga energy!
