Total years in practice: 3
Sera has been a lifetime student and accomplished teacher of Yoga and Ayurveda. She has been blessed with teachers who have searched classically for the patterns of the Universe and Spirit. Her studies and experiences in the realms of Yoga, Mantra, and Ayurveda all serve to assist in increasing her depth, sensitivity, and simplicity in ways she lives and practices. Her primary source training has allowed her to be a dynamic teacher and facilitator of the modern age. She is fluent in human physical and psychological mechanics and thus can adjust sequences, lectures, and treatment plans rapidly to accommodate individuals' present needs.
Some of her teachers include Andrey Lappa of Universal Yoga, Kula Yoga Project, Sankalpah College of Yoga (Yoga), Parvathy Baul, Sadhvi Abha Saraswatiji and Raghunath Cappo (Mantra), Vaidya Kashyapa Fischer, Dr. Vasant Lad, Vaidya Ravi of Poonthottam Ayurvedasram, the California College of Ayurveda, Dr. Claudia Welsh, Dr. Cate Stillman (Ayurveda), Vladimir Yatsenko (Sanskrit), Sthaneshwar Timalsina, AG Mohan, David Garrigues (Philosophy and Pranayama), April Harter (Racism Recovery), Michelle Cassandra Johnson (Skill in Action), Kerri Kelly (CTZNWell) (Social Justice), Sunshine School (Chiang Mai, Thailand), Ohm (Omsala Chiang Mai, Thailand) Thai Massage and Chi Nei Tsang.
Each of her teachers has forever moved her to teach from a heartfelt space of humble knowledge, respect, and intuition – qualities ever present in yoga and its teachings.
In classes we will focus on the science behind the relationships between the body, the mind, and their bridges. We will be most observant of the flow of prana – how and where it moves and does not move in posture and how it relates – or does not – with consciousness. Using the paradigms of Ha-tha Yoga and Ayurveda we will explore our capacity to be both strong and flexible, moving and still, Ha and Tha, and of course, migrate in the direction of steady appreciation and wholistic awareness.
