Discover Your Gift for Teaching - take your teaching experience to another level
You will graduate knowing HOW to teach....trained and experienced in
your skills to teach yourself and others - safely and appropriately to each
student's own individual physical, mental and emotional needs, for their
current conditions and stage of life. A Teacher passes on valuable experience
and knowledge to prepare students to create their own physical and emotional
practice during a lifetime. An instructor simply gives verbal directions and
usually while unsafely practicing physical yoga asanas with their students!
That is performing yoga, not teaching yoga.

The Authentic World of Yoga includes these inseparable components -
Breath, History & Philosophy, Asana, Somantic Meditation, Ayurveda, Anatomy & Physiology,
Sutras, Chakras, Mantra, and Yoga's Beginnings.....
First, learn about the Teacher.........
My yoga path began in India, at age 14, where I began therapeutic yoga with the
Father of Modern Yoga - Sri T. Krishnamacharya - the revered sage and teacher
of yoga, ayurveda, meditation and sutras, who was the first teacher of most prominent
teachers we know today - BKS Iyengar, TKV Desikachar, his son; Indra Devi - first lady
of Yoga, who also taught into her 100th year. Tirumali Krishnamacharya is called a
Paripurna - A Complete Yogi -by those fortunate to have known him. I continued
to study with him until I began teaching at age 22 and consider him my root teacher.
"Control the Breath, Focus your Mind and Direct it into your Heart.
That is the meaning of Spirituality" Tirumalai Krishnamacharya
Lifelong study with yoga and meditation masters Indra Devi, Menaka Desikachar,
BKS Iyengar, Vanda Scaravali, Pema Chodron, Thich Naht Hanh, Dr. Robert Thurman,
Dr. David Frawley, His Holiness The Dalai Lama - in yoga and meditation traditions
and therapies, philosophy, physiology, Ayurveda,Tibetan Buddhism. Education is a
Masters degree in Education and ongoing years of advanced studies, Yoga Alliance
University Level Teacher and a longtime student of Tibetan Buddhism. Recently,
I deepened studies again in India with Ayurveda physicians at the International
Ayurveda Conference and with The Dalai Lama at Derab Ling Monastery, France
and retreat-studies with him in Dharmsala, India. * Currently participating in studies
of Neuroscience - new research and findings in brain, mind and body relationships
in Modern Day Stresses of addictive disorders, healing and prevention and the
positive healing results of Meditation in this area. Dream Yoga with Dr. Andrew
Holecekhas opened my eyes and my subconscious mind to its wonders and benefits.
Therapeutic Breath, Sound & Motion Yoga, Ayurveda in the Inland Empire....
I established yoga schools in Canada and the US, creating new therapeutic
yoga programs - Yoga Within - for universities, hospitals and medical centers.
In 1999, I opened Yoga Within & Healing Arts Center Yoga School, Riverside, CA
and later became A World View Yoga School in Redlands, CA with progressive
semester courses of study and practice in yoga, meditation, Ayurveda for Everyone -
Absolute Beginners to Advanced Practitioners; physicians; therapists; ministers!
The school brought the first Ayurvedic physicians to the Southern California
Inland Empire for education in the first medical science, sister to Yoga, where
students and Western medical community learned how to compliment their own
practices with a 2,000 year old model.
This compassionate meeting of different minds was a benefit to everyone,
resulting in individual remission and recovery of conditions and disease, physicians
integrating ayurvedic science and practitioners into their workplace. **
ViniYoga in Medical Centers, Hospitals and Clinics.....
In 1999, cardiologists and medical professionals invited me to create the first
Therapeutic Yoga Program for patients and yoga classes for staff at St. Bernardine
Medical Center in San Bernardino, CA. The hospital also worked with San Bernardino
County Correctional Institute for Women, providing a re-entry program for young
offenders returning to life in their community. As part of the program requirements
for Graduation, I taught meditation and yoga to the young women in the program.
I have worked with government agencies, schools, non-profit organizations in
teaching people How to Breathe. Asthma, Emphasema, allergies and lung cancer are
serious and often fatal conditions world-wide, are prominent in Southern California,
where I have taught medical professionals at Loma Linda Medical School & Hospitals
and patients how to alleviate conditions and restore their breathing to Original Breath.

scoliosis. Yoga for Pregnancy - inception to delivery, and Yoga is a science-based proven practice
of healing the body, mind and spirit.
Asana, or physical movement in Yoga called Hatha, is one of its eight limbs. Hatha is not a teacher's
lineage, such as Krishnamacharya - Viniyoga. Hatha means 'physical'. I will talk about this in depth
on the following pages. You will read Students Comment from those who began the ViniYoga
Program with no knowledge of yoga, those who came to me having practiced other 'styles', more
correctly called Lineages of asana practice, from those who have been teaching for years, and
from students of other Yoga Teacher Training Programs. **
