Sita is a mother, artist and devotee of the Earth and Moon, as well as a Certified Yoga Therapist with over 1000 hours of training through Niroga Institute in Berkeley and Dharma Inc in Berkeley, Oakland and Thailand. She is the co-director of The Moon is My Calendar, and a natural cycles coach.
Born in India and raised in the Bay Area, Sita has been practicing yoga regularly for the past fourteen years and intermittently since childhood. Her earliest teachers were her parents, who spent the months before and after her birth studying with TKV Desikachar in Southern India. Sita humbly and lovingly shares the trauma-informed, heart-opening transformational practices of yoga that have been transmitted to her over the years from her beloved teachers.
Her classes maintain a focus on self-awareness and discovery of breath, energy, and connection, in the spirit of her deep desire that all beings may experience their own inherent wholeness. They are accessible to beginners and advanced practitioners alike, living in bodies of all shapes, sizes and abilities.
In addition to the tools of breath, movement, meditation, and chanting, Sita uses the New Moon Calendar Journal as a tool to support clients in deepening their self-awareness and understanding, tuning into natural cycles and creating lasting transformation in their lives.
