These are not your average yoga teachers by any stretch. Combined they have 60 years + of training and several thousand accredited hours... but that barely scratches the surface of their depth and breadth.

  • 1000 + Certified Training Hours Acquired
  • Dhuni Master
  • Vegan Chef
  • Jedi Knight

Naganath is the Founder of the Tantric Alchemy Institute. An ardent yogi for the past 22 years, Naga has completed over 1000 hours of yoga teacher training with Shiva Rea (her Advanced Teacher Training Program), Rod Stryker, and teachers from the Bihar School of Yoga. In 2004, Naga studied Ayurveda at The Ayurvedic Academy held at Bastyr University in Washington and began extensive studies in Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) with the aid of his close friend and mentor in various occult sciences, Dr. Robert Svoboda. It was Naga's devotion and earnestness that propelled and guided him to find a strong karmic resonance in Ancient Tantra, eventually being initiated by Shri Kapilnath into the International Nath Order, a modern Nath Tantric sect established by Shri Gurudev Mahendranath with its roots in the Adi-Nath Sampradaya and Uttara Kaula Sampradayas of which Shri Mahendranath was holder of parampara and Guru. The Guru tradition and initiation of the International Nath Order includes wisdom teachings from Hindu, Soto Zen and Taoist sources plus practices rediscovered by the science and yoga of meditation, contemplation, mantra and ritual. After managing a well-respected yoga studio in Venice Beach, California, Naga recognized a void in the western yoga scene and was compelled to create a yoga school which incorporates the classic yogic sciences under one umbrella in order to honor and keep the torch of the ancient yogis alight as well as to aid and advance western yoga students in these classic wisdom sciences.
