More about your presenter Torin:
I began my practice of yoga in the late 1970’s, learning a basic Integral Yoga sequence the practice of which I maintained. I started branching out in the mid 2000’s and took YTT at Kripalu in 2012, Jurian Hughes and Suddha Carolyn Lundeen being the primary instructors. I started taking Kundalini class regularly in September 2018 with Jai Dev, on line, my daily practice being Sat Kriya. I completed Kundalini YTT in June of 2020, Hari Kaur, being the primary teacher. I started Vipassana meditation practice in December, 2013 (as taught by S.N. Goenka). I’ve completed 3/10 unit YTT’s with Yoganand Michael Carroll toward his 500 hour Pranakriya certification those being Pranayama, Pradipika and Bhagavagita.I’ve been teaching mostly gentle to small groups since 2012, and Kundalini since 2020. I love to share the practices I have found so valuable in my life.Outside of yoga, I’m a recently retired RN, having worked 30 plus years, mostly in hemodialysis and OR. I have a BS in Biology with a minor in dance from ECSU.I have had numerous movement passions, including; Jukido, basketball, soccer, contact improv, ice skating and contra dance. Currently my primary movement passion is hiking in the woods with my little dog, Zinni, and foraging for mushrooms.
