“My path has been one of syncretism and I allow it all to inform my teaching and my art. My childhood up until college was spent as a musician. Yoga found me when I was 15 years old, hours after school were spent in my room practicing with an Iyengar Yoga book. The flexibility and body control gain from practice created the space for a competitive gymnastics career. This combined with a background in pageantry open the doors to a professional dancing/entertainment career. A knee injury that would later require surgery brought a new dimension to my practice. It was when yoga became a tool for regeneration and recovery that the next “right” thing for me to do was share this technology through teaching it.” ~Siri Shiva S. Yogiji
