Our Teachers

Our teachings are based on the principle that creative freedom promotes authenticity. This allows our teachers to explore what the practice means to them and how that translates into self-empowered guidance and instruction. We are proud to offer such classes, workshops, and online events that are entirely curated by the teachers themselves to bring you connection and the intimate community feel of being in a studio at home.
