My mission is simple: to honour my teachers, serve the Tradition and share Yoga with the world in the way that it was intended – as a spiritual science designed to awaken humanity to its highest potential. Everything I teach is lineage-based, handed down over thousands of years from teacher to student in an unbroken chain of personal transmission.

At age 19 I began practicing Kriya Meditation and at 27 was initiated into Kriya by Swami Shankarananda in Northern India. I pilgrimaged for a decade across India and South East Asia, deepening my experience and understanding of Yoga. I have accumulated dozens of certificates over the last two decades but honestly, they mean nothing. My teachers have always taught me that only direct experience matters and how committed we are to our daily practice.

Over the last 15 years I have dedicated myself to two Master teachers of Tantric Hatha Yoga. I lived with my first teacher, David Goulet, beloved disciple of Dr. Swami Gitananda for 7 years in Thailand. He taught me how to walk this path again. To him I am eternally grateful. 

I now study under the masterful guidance of my Guruji, Yogarupa Rod Stryker, founder of Parayoga and beloved disciple of Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD, current spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute. Through Yogarupa’s grace I received formal initiation into the lineage of Sri Vidya Tantra, the knowledge-stream of the Himalayan Masters. 

As the ancient sages suggest, I teach and practice Asana, Pranayama, Bandha, Mudra and Kriya as preparation for the highest practice - Meditation. As a teacher, my goal is to help students find more purpose, power, joy and freedom in their lives. As a Yogi, my goal is to practice wholeheartedly until my very last breath.
