For Students

You’re ready for a deep but gentle approach that resolves physical and mental pain at the root.

Group and individual offerings are designed with tried-and-true techniques to cultivate physical healing, wisdom, rejuvenation, life transformation, and inner illumination. At the core of our work together, is SRY {Spinal Release Yoga}, which provides a calm letting go and natural healing at the deepest level.

Group Offerings

Cultivate inner openings with Weekly Classes, Workshops and Immersions. This is the most affordable way to delve in on a weekly basis, establish a home practice and maintain openings you get from any private sessions you may receive.

One-On-Ones

Go directly to the deepest level with Yoga Therapy Sessions and Packages that provide six times more healing than is possible with group classes. This is the swiftest and most personalized way to get change in your body, mind and heart.

Reflections & Results From A Student

“This practice has given me experiences of the deeper states of consciousness I always yearned for. I was into ‘new age’ and Indian traditions from a young age but never had the transcendental experiences I heard about. With this yoga I accessed absorbed states of consciousness and bliss for the first time in my life. It is mind blowing!.”

Because of you and your yoga I no longer require a chiropractor, after many years. This yoga has changed everything. I finally get to feel peace in my body.

Reflections & Results From A Student

The chronic pain in my left arm is pretty much gone. I know it has a lot to do with taking your class regularly! My ribs are not as “stuck”, allowing me to work more easefully, which is really amazing and necessary!”

Kaya’s Professional Bio & Experience

After encountering yogic teachings in 1999, I abandoned academia and launched over a decade of retreat, tutelage and formal training in Vedic tradition.

As an accredited Yoga Therapist and Teachers’ Teacher, I’ve logged over 10,000 hours of credentialed study and teaching with work that integrates full spectrum of Vedic therapies – Yoga and Yoga Therapy, Pregnancy Yoga , Clinical Ayurveda, Vedic Psychology, Vedanta Philosophy, and Vedic Astrology. Long-time seekers, healing professionals, experienced yogis and teachers tend to resonate with my approach – a technical, direct, personalized and gentle system that emphasizes release as a means to transformation. I have benefited from direct study with brilliant teachers, including Dr. Sarita Shrestha, Rama Berch, Hart deFouw, Swami Dayananda Saraswati, and Swami Tattvavidananda. I am in private practice at my yoga therapy center in Northern California, where I live with my husband, a Vedic Astrologer, and our son.
