expanding and growing in the practice. To that end I have purchased a
building in the Dimond District that will house a more traditional yoga shala, or school of yoga. The new space called Vati can accommodate 12 students at a time, and I am intending on having applications for Vati students

heartfelt gratitude to the Loka community for all that we have shared
together over the years.
