At Yoga in life I teach classical integral yoga that is firmly based in yogic tradition and adapted to suit the needs of contemporary living. It includes Hatha, Raja, Karma, Jnana, Mantra and Bhakti Yoga as well as other branches and presents them in a package that is unified but also flexible enough to be applied according to individual needs. It is a systematic, step-by-step approach to yoga, based on safety, common sense and integration of all aspects of our personality. Practices are presented in a safe and exclusive environment where students are encouraged to have their own unique experience. Studio classes, workshops, conferences and a more intense exploration in Yogic Studies or Teacher Training courses are available in various locations throughout the world. Please enquire for more information.

"I aspire to introduce to my students the ways in which yoga brings awareness to how we function in life and how we can develop the dormant, hidden potentials within ourselves. To this end, yoga is not just a collection of practices done once a week, but a lifestyle where we have the opportunity to express our creativity, and improve ourselves and the environment through determination and wisdom".

Comment from a student:

"I have had the good fortune to have experienced several different types of yoga and yoga teachers. Of all my experiences, the classes at Yoga in Life have a way of showing the student how integrated they are with everything. The classes have balance and finesse that show the student what they already possess that is positive and what they can further attain. Tailor made Fitness from the inside out! I would recommend these classes to anyone from a first time student, to another teacher or dedicated yogi." -Tamara
