I have been practicing Bhakti Yoga for over 30 years, and my own spiritual journey began several years ago, in the quest for inner peace and harmony. A profound spiritual awakening which happened in early 2007 led to a wonderful quieting of continuous thoughts, allowing me to look beyond changing the external environment and relationships to look deeper inwards and bring mind, body, spirit in balance.
During my meditations and reflections, I was inspired to share this knowledge and experience with others which resulted in starting Prana Gyana®, a company focused on holistic mind, body, and spirit integration techniques. I have developed the Nava Shakti® program for Holistic Health (includes Weight and Stress Management).
I have a strong passion for learning and generating new realities from concepts and ideas. With an Engineering and Business degree from ASU, about 20 years in the corporate world as an engineer, manager, and technical skills trainer, I bring an eclectic mix of knowledge and experience to my yoga and meditation classes.
