Barbara Collette teaches Yoga Classes at The InnerSanctuary in Baldwinsville, NY.
Barbara also certifies Hatha Yoga Teachers and hosts KRI approved Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training.
She is the owner and Spiritual Director of The InnerSanctuary and has been practicing/teaching, studying and researching the profound effects of yoga for the past 30 years. She has completed a three-month retreat in Nepal at the Shyalpa Monestary with direct teachings from her Spiritual Teacher, Shyalpa Rinpoche. In 2000 she was given the name 'Pema Dechen' meaning the 'Great Blissful Lotus'. She has traveled to India and blends her yogic knowledge with direct experiential knowledge from her travels and teachings from Shyalpa Rinpoche.
Her most recent undertaking is to delve deeper into the mind through the study of Kundalini Yoga and is certified as both a Spiritual Advisor and a 500hr RYT Kundalini Instructor. She was given the name 'Siri Kirin Kaur' meaning the 'Great Ray of Light'.
Barbara believes that yoga is a sacred art form and should be practiced and taught as such. She believes a well-rounded teacher training and yoga class should focus on all aspects of the yogic path. In addition to the physical asanas (postures), other aspects include pranayama (breath), pratyahara (sense withdrawal), dharana (concentration) and dhyana (contemplation) and samadhi (peace).
Barbara has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for 20 years and is certified in various alternative modalities. She is also a gifted energy worker.
