Raghunath (Sali Ryan) Ragunath Atma Center yoga instructor

AYT-L2, E-RYT 500, CYT

Raghunath means "Lord of the Raghus (Rama's family)"

Raghunath's yoga practice has had a profound influence on her career as an educator, as she worked to introduce the use of movement, breathing and learning to be "still" and focused into the school system. She encouraged her students to understand themselves and to develop strength and flexibility in their bodies and their minds. She believes these skills will help our children to manage themselves more successfully as they grow up in our fast-paced society. Raghunath also enjoys teaching our Yoga for Kids classes.

Raghunath began her own yoga practice in an attempt to alleviate chronic muscle tension in her shoulders, chest and back. She found that yoga helped her maintain greater balance and manage the stress in her job working with children who have emotional and behavioral problems. Wanting a deeper understanding of yogic philosophy, Raghunath began a Yogic Studies course. As a result of these studies, she became a yoga instructor so that she could share with others the benefits she has enjoyed from her own practice. She feels yoga can truly be a life-changing and life-enhancing path.

Raghunath has travelled to India twice to connect more deeply with the traditions and teachings of this lineage of yoga.
