Kamala literally stumbled into yoga in 2008, when she stepped on an acorn and banged up her ankle, knee, and shoulder. An inner voice whispered “yoga” and as soon as her injuries healed, she began to practice. Within the first six months she lost 60 pounds and found a new lease on life. As the body opened and strengthened through asana practice, she uncovered a deep yearning for connection with the One.

She began to study Sanskrit in 2009, which led her into yoga philosophy and a regular meditation practice. She has logged over 2500 hours of yoga teaching experience, and also teaches Sanskrit with the American Sanskrit Institute. She continues to study the great works of yoga -- the Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Upanishads, as well as the subtler aspects of pranayama. In 2016 she took initiation into the lineage of Sri Swami Satchidananda. Luana’s upbeat personality, calming presence, and kindness will encourage you to work deeply with awareness to find comfort and steadiness in your practice so that you may discover Peace -- your very essence. Luana will join us as a guest instructor to teach pranayama, meditation, chanting and an introduction to Sanskrit.
