Sat Inder, E-RYT, began studying yoga at the Solar Yoga Center in 1999 but in 2000 discovered Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and quickly realized this practice was his calling. Studying it exclusively until 2008 when he began an in depth study of Anusara yoga with Desiree Rumbaugh to better understand the biomechanics of the body. Also in that same year began a study of Kundalini Yoga, which he became certified in 2011. In late 2011 he came back to his practice of Ashtanga Yoga which is his current area of study again, coming full circle. His classes are full of humor and serious grounding in traditional teachings.
