For as long as I can remember I’ve loved to sing. I walked into my first yoga class with chanting in 2011 and felt squarely at home. I went on to train with Rusty Wells in the Bay Area in the style of Bhakti Flow, a highly physical, sweaty, and sing-songy practice. My hope is that you and I can join joyful forces in the concerted efforts of physicality and intention, to leave a yoga practice feeling a little better than when we walked in.
