I am really into breath. I am really into intention.

Harnessing the power of the human mind through breath is the ultimate tool for health, healing, and happiness.

I lead volunteer yoga classes outdoors in San Francisco, CA at Hayes Valley Farm. I have been doing so for the past year. I also throw conscious (alcohol free) yoga and blindfolded dance parties in SF.

As an eLearning entrepreneur and enthusiast, I believe eLearning to be a fantastic tool for personal sustainability. eLearning reduces the carbon footprint of travel, increasing potential for ...See All

Hemalayaa teaches a unique combination of yoga and Indian dance in Los Angeles and travels the globe transforming lives through these practices. As a yogini, dancer and fitness educator, Hemalayaa has a natural gift for bringing out the joy and the dancer in everyone. The daughter of Indian parents, Hema's upbringing taught her that dance was important to health and well-being, and her yoga training began at home at an early age. Her first teacher was her father. She went on to study yoga, philosophy, and meditation. A life devoted to yoga and dance animates Hemalayaa's playful spirit. Laughter, her own and that of her students, is the trademark sound of her classes. Hema loves turning her students on to the vibrant styles of Indian dance, which is revolutionizing conscious movement. She is the creator and author of numerous health and fitness DVDs and has been featured in publications such as Yoga Journal, Body & Soul, Fit Yoga, The New York Times and LA Yoga Magazine among others. When she's not shimmying with Ellen Degeneres on her talk show, strutting her stuff with the ladies of the Today show or leading workshops and retreats around the world, Hemalayaa is most likely to be found in her kitchen whipping up some healthy, organic food, riding her bike around Los Angeles, spending time with friends and just generally enjoying life.
Laura Kupperman, E-RYT 500, began practicing yoga in 1995 and was initially hooked by how great she felt after an intense yoga "workout." It wasn't until she was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 that she began to understand the true potential for yoga to heal us on all levels. Laura is a certified Yoga Therapist, who works with a wide range of clientele and specializes in yoga for cancer survivors and yoga for fertility enhancement. She has started yoga programs in hospitals, cancer centers and PT clinics; and currently teaches yoga for the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine, one of the top fertility centers in the U.S. She also leads teacher trainings, workshops, and presents at conferences. Laura is a compassionate, thoughtful teacher who welcomes students of all levels to experience the healing power of yoga.
