Intentional Flow: Every Wednesday and Friday, 9:00-10:15 a.m., at Yoga Soup in Santa Barbara, California

My classes blend traditional yoga with modern therapeutic variations. Fusing the esoteric with the scientific and the yin with the yang, my classes help students cultivate a sense of harmony in their bodies and their lives. Intelligently sequenced, they balance stability and strength with ease, encouraging students to maintain a conscious heart, alert mind, and embodied presence of spirit. The class is suitable for all levels.

Listen to what past students have shared about the program.


The program exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it. I enjoyed the variety of speakers and my classmates were great, too. I would encourage all of my friends and students interested in expanding their knowledge of Yoga to take this course. It is a catalyst to broaden their knowledge and scope of teaching.” —Nicolle Lincir, former student


Though the philosophy, art, and science of Yoga dates back to ancient India, Yoga is now practiced across the globe, and the need for competent instructors is all the more necessary.


Loyola Marymount University’s program is Yoga Alliance®-registered and offers participants the opportunity to deepen their understanding of fundamental and advanced concepts through an immersion into Yoga’s classical and modern forms. This program is open to all who wish to expand their knowledge of Yoga, and given the program’s particular focus on healing and therapy, individuals in education, fitness, healthcare, and related fields are highly encouraged to enroll. Located in Los Angeles, this program’s weekend sessions open the program to those with full-time careers and other commitments.


Whereas many teacher training programs focus on a single practice or school of Yoga, this program introduces students to a variety of practices, as well as meditation, chanting, and pranayama. Students will also learn fundamental theories of Ayurvedic healing and modern Yoga therapy as well.


The program takes place over 11 weekends and runs August through December 2019An all-star cast of teachers will be joining me!

Yoga Therapy is a synthesis of ancient wisdom from the East and recent knowledge on health and healing practices from the West. Loyola Marymount University’s professional certificate programs prepare Yoga instructors to work with individuals who have health challenges not normally met in group classes. These challenges can be physical, mental, or emotional. Yoga therapy can be a means to manage illness or facilitate healing, and yoga therapists prescribe specific regimens of postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques to suit individual needs. This unique program is comprised of four parts: a basic program, an advanced program, a clinical program, and an internship program. For additional information, click here.
