Names and initiations: what they mean

Many of our instructors have received initiation (diksha) into this lineage of yoga, which means they have made a formal commitment to deepen their knowledge, serve others through teaching, and further the development of yoga as a tool for health on all levels. Some instructors also receive Sanskrit names which they use when teaching. The names are meant to reveal the innermost part of the self which is to be developed through the practice of yoga.
