Atmadarshan has used yoga to reduce her allergies and eliminate her need for prescription eyeglasses, which she had been wearing for decades due to astigmatism. Her unique background in biological psychiatry, martial arts and public speaking, combined with her extensive yoga teaching, make her a sought-after instructor.


Atmadarshan, Laura Santoro instructs the following:

  • Yoga can help you feel better mentally and emotionally, as well as physically. In this workshop, you will learn

    * how yoga psychology is different than, yet compliments, Western psychology
     
    * how different yoga practices are used to manage depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other common conditions of the mind
     
    This class will include both theory and practice. Wear comfortable clothing and bring your mat, or rent one for $2 whenyou arrive.
