Hi I'm Ish. My aim is to preserve traditional Yogic and Buddhist teachings in an accessible way for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Many yoga classes today unfortunately only focus on surface-level goals such as "getting a good workout" or becoming strong. However, it falls short of the potential that Yoga was meant to provide. In my classes, you'll learn practical techniques to calm the mind, develop concentration, develop equanimity, experience bliss, and more. My personal practice consists of meditating 3 hours daily, taking (and teaching) multiple yoga classes per week, and studying with Buddhist monks in-person to deepen my practice. The practice of meditation and yoga has absolutely changed my life, and I wish to spread some of that joy to you!
