om sri gurubhyo namaH
Tribute and Reverence to the Source
It was my good fortune to grow up in the pristine and endearing village of Whycocomagh, overlooking the shores of the Bras D’or Lakes, on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Whycocomagh, is a Mi’kmaq word which means ‘Head of the Waters’. As a child I was in my element in this natural, untouched setting surrounded by the rivers, mountains and valley streams.
I am a student of Vedic studies committed to the pursuit and discovery of understanding the ultimate truth of life, known as Brahmavidya.
Studies in Yoga and Veda chanting are in the tradition and lineage of revered Yogacharya Sri T. Krishnamacharya, Yogacharya Sri TKV Desikachar, teachers and mentors of respected Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM). I have been entrusted with certification from KYM to serve as a Yoga Teacher, Veda Chanting Teacher and Yoga Therapist. Mentorship and studies continue in Yoga and traditional recitation of the Vedas at the KYM in Chennai, India.
A student of Vedanta and Sanskrit with Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, I am blessed to have been guided by my guru Param Pujya Svami Dayananda Sarasvati. My guru, Pujya Svami Paramarthananda Sarasvati, a senior disciple of Param Pujya Svami Dayanandaji, guides and supports my study in Chennai, India.
It is grace that bequeath the blessings of my beloved teachers, who gracefully and impeccably unfold the teachings of the Veda – fullness, wholeness, oneness is our true nature.
May grace be with me to discover this truth.
