Devoid of its metaphysical commitments, as yoga and meditation are methods to regulate body, mind and behavior, I turned to the field of yoga for its relevance to health, happiness and effectiveness in daily life and endeavored to demystify yoga and develop a yoga psychology, both a theory and a practice based on classical thought such that it is suitable to modern life, whatever may be ones belief system. Yoga psychology is empirical and it is based on reason and experience and not on blind faith or metaphysical explanations.As a psychologist I teach both the theory and practice of yoga and meditation for self-regulation, and to solve problems and to enhance ones being.
I have been conducting classes and workshop of yoga psychology for various target groups for nearly two decades.
I am available to conduct classes, give workshops and also deliver lectures on a number of topics relevant to yoga practitioners, yoga teacher trainees and yoga teachers, who wish to gain a psychological perspective on yoga. I look forward to work with yoga studios, yoga teachers, and interested individuals or groups in and around The Woodlands, TX.
As I do not have a place of my own to conduct classes, I am willing to teach at any studio or community hall or at home of those who wish to have my classes.
At present I am teaching occasionally at three yoga studios, in The Woodlands and Kingwood. You may contact these websites for details:
