A Yoga Potpourri: As you know from your life, we keep learning and adding new techniques and twists to our repertoire. Johanna Maheshvari’s Yoga is a combination of: gentle Kripalu Yoga; Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy; Iyengar-style Yoga studied for over ten years with Rama Jyoti Vernon; Yoga techniques learned from TVK and Kaustub Desikachar at the Krishnamacharya School in India; and Richard Miller’s i-Rest Yoga Meditation for Inner Restoration; plus what her own body has taught her from doing Yoga for decades. It all comes together organically as Johanna guides students to gently tap into a well of inner resources, enjoy whatever the body can do, and expand consciousness. 

Johanna Maheshvari Mosca, Ph.D.:  My vision for myself and my students is to expand consciousness, allow whatever unfolds, and cultivate inner peace and contentment. I have published three books related to living the wisdom of Yoga—YogaLife: 10 Steps to FreedomCultivate Contentment: Using Ancient Wisdom to Thrive in Today’s World; and most recently, Teen Triumph: 10 Ways to a Winning Life.  Starting in the 1990’s, I completed numerous trainings with two 200-hour certifications in Kripalu Yoga and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. Then I earned my 500 hours with the International Yoga College, studying mainly with Rama Jyoti Vernon. I followed that with two weeks in India, studying with TVK Desikachar and his son Kaustub at the Krishnamacharya Mandarim. In recent years, my focus on learning techniques to still the babbling mind has led me to complete two meditation teacher trainings, first 200-hours with the McLean Meditation Institute.  Then I went on to pursue my current passion, studying I-Rest (Inner Restoration) Meditation with Richard Miller, completing his teacher trainings I and II and enrolling presently in final Certification Level III. As a former “teacher specialist” for the NYC Public Schools, I have extensive experience meeting my students at their own level and helping them stretch to the next stage of growth, whatever that might be for each individual. I feel honored and grateful when other beings trust me to guide them in Yoga and consciousness expanding reflection on the spiritual path. Namaste. Om, shanti... Maheshvari
