We, Pam Luther and Jake Barr, are dedicated students of Yoga. We began exploring yoga and meditation in the mid 90’s, dabbling with various methods, teachers, and books in our travels. In 2000 we began to study Ashtanga yoga while living in Maui and became very drawn to the practice. We have travelled most years since 2002 for extended trips to study with our teachers, the late Pattahbhi Jois, R Sharath Jois and Saraswathi Rangaswamy in Mysore, India. I was authorized by Patthabi Jois and Sharath in 2006 and attended Sharath’s first course for teachers in 2009. I have level 2 authorization and the blessing to teach the full intermediate series. Jake was authorized by Patthabi Jois and Sharath in 2008.
Aside from our Ashtanga studies we have tried to find a way to make yoga and meditation accessible to everyone regardless of their circumstances or limitations. I began doing yoga therapy with clients in 2003 and have worked with a wide range of physical needs. Some of my clients are suffering from injuries or illness and others are wanting to prevent injury in their athletic pursuits or as they get older. I have worked with athletes to help them with both their physical and mental resilience. The last few years I have been studying trauma and am finding ways to bring yoga to populations that can be served by what yoga and meditation have to offer.
