Private yoga & Meditation

Traditionally, yoga was almost always shared on a one-to-one basis as a means of direct transmission from teacher to student. The deeper my own study and practice grows, the more I realize the benefit - if not the need - for offering this highly customizable approach. We are each living in very unique bodies, and operating with very unique minds. So much personalized information must go into creating a practice that can efficiently and elegantly address these diverse, unique, needs. Private sessions give us the opportunity to do just that.

Let's get to know one another so I can learn how best to support you, and prescribe a practice which will empower you to heal and begin living the life of your dreams.

Prana is one of the most widely referenced and narrowly understood aspects of the practice of yoga. So commonly defined as 'life force' with very little concept of what this actually means, most yoga practitioners know that prana is important, but we don't really understand why or how to practice with it.

This course offers an intellectual understanding of prana according to the masters of the Himalayan Tradition, as distilled by my teacher, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait. It includes tutorials for a krama - or wise progression - of pranayama practices which are designed to guide you through the various stages of breath awareness, pranic sensitivity, and a true experience of pranayama, in which you are able to masterfully harness prana to fulfill your soul's greatest desires and needs.


This course is a registered YACEP and fulfills the Yoga Alliance requirement for 30 hours of Continued Education. The content is a compilation of recorded lecture, written explanations, tutorials and practicum. The composite of these practices will lead you to a more rich and fulfilling experience of prana in support of a more rich and fulfilling experience of mediation, specifically Vishoka Meditation, the heart and soul of our Tradition.

What is Tantric Yoga? How does a Tantric practice differ from a 'standard' yoga practice? What is this path of alchemy and spiritual transformation? How can I incorporate Tantric methodology into my existing practice to reap the rewards of this systematic approach?

These are great questions, which I have received from practitioners around the world who have heard of this Tantric Yoga thing, but are able to uncover only minimal information about its practice, some of that heavily dogmatic, and the rest either cryptic or a bit absurd. 

I have created this offering as a means for answering some of these questions through : a light presentation of theory, and a generous dose of direct experience - by way of the best of teacher of all - practice itself.

What Does This Course Entail?


20 unique practices in 28 days 

Designed to empower you to explore and experience the various stages of the Tantric Yoga Path. Each week we will navigate the full progression from preparation through Moon, Sun & ultimately Fire.

I am choosing to utilize the full progression to help you understand the role each stage plays in creating a nourishing, balanced diet of yoga practice.

Join me, and our lovely international community of meditators, for a 28-day journey inward toward the center of your being, the place the ancient scriptures describe as 'beyond the reach of all suffering,' and name 'the lotus of the heart.' Becoming more and more established in this lotus center grants us greater peace, clarity, joy, and grace as we navigate both our inner and our outer worlds.

WE RISE is a daily guided meditation sādhanā, or devoted spiritual practice, with a group of dedicated practitioners from around the world. We have been gathering via Zoom since the summer of 2020, and we have grown together as individuals, and collectively.

This round of WE RISE will utilize the meditation methodology of the Himalayan Tradition, which culminates in Vishoka Meditation®, resting awareness in the Lotus of the Heart.


Most appropriate for practitioners with at least a foundational meditation experience, WE RISE spiritual alchemy is an opportunity to engage with a balanced approach of increasing clarity and compassion while we undergo subtle, yet significant, internal transformation.


The techniques shared are all drawn from Vishoka Meditation®, a gift of the Himalayan Tradition, made accessible to this generation through the writing, teaching, and loving guidance of Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, known affectionately as Panditji.

Imagine a life free from pain and sorrow—infused with joy and tranquility.
The ancient yogis called this state vishoka, and insisted that we all can reach it. The key is a precise set of meditative techniques designed to unite mind and breath, and turn them inward.

Inherit the Wisdom of a Living Tradition
Vishoka Meditation® is grounded in the authentic wisdom of ancient, yet living, tradition embodied by luminaries including Buddha, Patanjali, and a long line of Siddha masters. Drawing upon both yoga and tantra, Vishoka Meditation® shares the essence of ancient source texts including the Yoga Sutra, Lotus Sutra and Shiva Sutra.

Experience Vishoka Meditation®
The heart of Vishoka Meditation is a technique that is spiritually-grounded, yet highly systematic and experiential. But Vishoka Meditation is more than technique—it is a living practice supported by a rich body of wisdom, refined over countless generations.

This Course fulfills the pre-requisite for the Vishoka Meditation® Teacher Training.

The Yoga Sutra is the living source wisdom of the Yoga tradition. Using it as a guide, we can unlock the hidden power and experience the promise of Yoga in our life. The Yoga Sutra is as fresh today as it was 2,200 years ago when it was discovered by the sage Patanjali. By applying its living wisdom in our practice, we can achieve the purpose of life - lasting fulfillment and ultimate freedom. 

Every time I read Patanjali's Yoga Sutras I am astounded by the wisdom they contain.  They are an intricate, in depth manual for maximizing our experience of humanity.  Many of us in the west begin our foray into yoga outside of the context of the Yoga sutras, and so miss out on the profound possibility yoga contains.  

In Patanjali's first chapter of the Yoga Sutra, he dives deeply into the nature of the human mind - its promises and its pitfalls. He explores the nature of suffering, as well as revealing what is known as the 'secret' of the yoga sutra, the true nature of the self, divine, radiant, self-luminous joy beyond the reach of all suffering.

For this satsanga we will use Pandit Rajmani Tigunait's commentary on the Yoga Sutras as our guide. Panditji's commentary is practitioner oriented, fully grounded in a living tradition. It shares the essence of Pandit Tigunait's rigorous scholarly understanding of the Yoga Sutra through the filter of experiential knowledge gained through decades of advanced yogic practices and enriched by the gift of living wisdom he received from the masters of the Himalayan Tradition.

Embodiment through Mantra


Embodiment is a buzz word in the yoga world these days. But what does it really mean? It means transitioning your engagement with yoga from a primarily intellectual endeavor to one of direct experience. The intellect is subject to doubt. Direct experience is undeniable.


Embodiment means that you are a living, breathing expression of your practice in day to day life. It means that all of life is an experience of the sacred, even the most mundane moments like folding laundry, checking email or driving your car.

How do we transition from the intellect to direct experience? For me, Mantra has been the key. Mantra invites the thinking mind to rest, held in a nurturing cocoon by the sacred Sanskrit sounds received by the Rshis thousands of years ago. These Mantras are living and breathing vibratory expressions of various aspects of the Divine. They live and breathe in creation, they live and breathe within us.


Mantra awakens us to the presence of these energies. They do so in a way which protects and expands the mind, and accelerates the process of enlightenment.
