Yoga and spiritual development are really about self-discovery and alignment with the teacher within.
In that sense, I would describe myself more like a guide than a teacher — the real teacher is inside.
There are many techniques and practices available that can help us become more awakened and enlightened human beings, so that we are better able to hear that internal teacher’s wisdom.
Yoga asana, the practice of physical postures, is just one part of a huge breadth of tools that are available.
Others include devotional practices, meditation, philosophic study, pranayama (breathing exercises), chanting, self-study, and tapas (purification practices). These practices have been shown to induce calmness and peacefulness of mind, a sense of feeling connected to all, cardiovascular wellness, increased energy and the appearance of youthfulness, among other benefits.
In my classes, I focus predominantly on the non-physical tools and guiding folks into a personal spiritual practice – which looks different for everyone. In each session, we will identify and practice tools that are catered to meet the individual student’s requirements.

Coming next month we will start a 9-week study of the Bhagavad Gita.
Each week, we will go over two chapters of the Bhagavad Gita. We will start by chanting the two chapters in Sanskrit, followed by a philosophical discussion.
Follow us on the Yoga Lawyer Facebook page to stay in the loop and watch the practice live online. You are also welcome to join us in person at the law studio if you are in town!
