As a yoga instructor and owner, I have nurtured Onyx's growth alongside my own. I teach a variety of styles including Traditional, Yin, and Kundalini yoga classes placing a keen focus on pranayama, movement, subtle body alignment, and meditation. My classes are a safe space where students are cared for and strengthened from the inside. When plugging into Source, there is an ability to make students feel as if I am speaking directly to them without drawing individual attention to the person. I invite people to experience themselves and deepen their exploration of what they believe possible. My gift to others is to pass on the Teachings from those who have done the same for me. No matter the audience the Philosophy is spoken to be accessible to everyone and all environments/circumstances.
My classes are a blend of traditional text study including the Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, and Krishna’s many past times and leelas. I incorporate chanting, gong playing, inner exploration, and bhakti love into my classes. Embodying each moment, delving deeper into one’s own experience, that is the gift of Yoga, one which I live to share with others. I am grateful to my teachers, past- present- and future. And will be forever connected to my Guru, Swami Satchidnanda, who has given me the spiritual name “Malati.”
