Indira Kate Kalmbach

Indira is the founder and director of yoga teacher trainings. She is E-RYT 500 certified. She understands yoga as a physical, mental, and emotional discipline with the potential to transform human being-ness. Her yoga teaching embodies an ecological sense of the world-community, which includes all of nature, exiling nothing. Through a seamless weaving of physical alignment, emotional attuning, and a deep understanding of the human psyche, Indira creates inspiring yoga classes that invite students to practice radical self-acceptance and to leave class feeling fully present, grounded, and awake.

Caru Lila Schultz

In the past two years, Caru finished her 300-hour advanced yoga teacher training certification at Pavones Yoga Center. This opened the door to study and savor more of the subtle and gross aspects of physical anatomy, alignment and sequencing. Caru has also studied Vedanta, pranayama, and asanas with inspiring yoga teachers from different backgrounds and nationalities. What she loves about teaching yoga is the possibility to share and trade transformative experiences with students. Caru’s classes explore the synchrony between movement and breath, stability, and flexibility.
