Kristin Chirhart and Lee Sverkerson take their work seriously hoping to convey to each pupil the knowledge that has been passed on to them. In their studies they have learned that yoga is much more than it is usually thought of in the West, much more than an exercise routine. Yoga is a spiritual practice by which one comes to know oneself entirely, body, mind and soul.
