Dattattreya and Emily at the graduation ceremony. Dattattreya is a Senior Desciple of Swami Vishnudevananda. Swami Vishnudevananda was the Senior Desciple of Swami Sivananda and is who is responsible for bringing this practice to North America.

YOGA: yolk or union is about so much more than just physical poses. It is the union of your physical self, your concsious self and your highest self. Emily began learning yoga in 1998 and has both taught and practiced ever since. She began with Ashtanga Yoga and went on to study in a much deeper program. She recived formal training (300 hours) in 2005 in the Sivananda style of yoga with her teacher, Dattatreya. The experience was life changing and continues to be part of her daily life.
