My Quick Story

My relationship with Vedic astrology and Indian/metaphysical teaching began when I was 19 years old, and studying the books of Bhagwan Rajneesh. At that time, there were not a lot of opportunities to teach yoga or astrology. It was the early 80s. So I continued on my path studying and practicing these meditation techniques, all while pursuing music and life as a singer/songwriter.

Fast-forward to the age of the Internet, and late 90s and return to my love of studying these Indian concepts. I received a Yoga teacher training certifications and quickly follow that by the intense study of astrology.

By 2004 I was practicing Vedic astrology close full-time and also teach yoga five days a week. After I published my first book, my astrology practice took off. I started a busy consulting practice, but most importantly, I began teaching.

Since then my focus has been on teaching Astrology in any venue or circumstance possible. I offer online classes, workshops, webinars and full-blown certification courses for anyone at any interest level or skill. 

Certification Course
in 2012 I began my Certification Courses, that have since trained close to 200 Vedic astrologers. Each year we have more than 100 full-time students registered for 9 months of classes. 

I love to teach my students and interact with my colleagues and I am blessed to be able to teach in many circumstances, both publically and privately

I am also Blessed to have built a great platform online through Youtube and Facebook
