my favorite hobby is meditating. thank goodness i love asana practice too or i would just become a blob.
i started ahimsa house with money from a wrongful arrest here in philly. i thought that i would combat some of the issues that we have in this city by starting a center for nonviolence offering free classes to everyone, by everyone.
Dana- or generosity is a culture that i picked up on while living in Tibet, India and Nepal. I learned and practiced meditation and yoga for free for seven years in Asia, and upon returning to my home country i found i couldn't afford to "join" a sangha of practitioners. luckily i ran into some $ that could cover a down payment on a house in west philly, and with a lil help from my friends ahimsa house opened in 2012!
i have been meditating with intention and practicing asana for 13 years, recently participating in studio 34's amazing yoga teacher training program!
