Lakshmi was led to hatha yoga in 2003 in search of a quieter mind. In the summer of 2010 she moved to the Sivananda Ashram in Grass Valley, CA where she served her Guru, Swami Sitaramananda, and taught traditional Hatha yoga, over the next 10 months. Upon leaving the ashram she settled back in her roots of the Pacific Northwest where she taught and studied restorative and vinyasa yoga. Lakshmi moved to Vermont in the spring of 2012; it was then she began to recognize her calling in the therapeutic yoga realm; Lakshmi now specializes in meditation and yoga for both teen and adult Eating Disorders, Addiction, and Anxiety. In each of Lakshmi’s classes or individual sessions, she emphasizes breath-based movement from within the subtle body, the energetic core or center space; through instruction in rooting, core integration and energetic expansion each of Lakshmi’s students are able to explore their own union with gravities pull and the strength of their own bodies. Meditative and investigative stillness, along with slow, steady, rhythmic vinyasa awaken us to breath, body, the inherent web of love, and our own essential emptiness.
