About Harmony

In 2002 Harmony traveled to China with a field school to research Buddhist Meditation. For six weeks, she lived and practiced in several monasteries in remote areas of the countryside. These experiences encouraged her to pursue more actively the path of Ashtanga Yoga in conjunction with a meditation practice. After this she attended several ten-day Vipassana meditation retreats, as taught by S. N. Goenka.

She made her first trip to Mysore, India in 2004, to practice and learn Ashtanga yoga under the direct guidance of Sri. K Pattabhi Jois and his grandson R. Sharath Jois. She continued returning annually to practice and immerse herself within India’s colorful context for many months at a time.

Harmony later moved to Thailand and began learning Pranayama directly from Sri O.P Tiwari, at the time head of the Kaivalyadhama Institute. She practiced with him for the next twelve years.

In 2015, Harmony received ‘Certification’ from Sharath Jois. This is the highest acknowledgment one can receive from the original Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore. It is an internationally recognized credential to teach the Ashtanga Yoga method and the Advanced Series.
