Director of Yogic Studies
Lyra received her initial 200 hour certification through Lotus Gardens Yoga School in 2017, and in 2021 she received her 300 hour certification through Tibet House US & Menla’s Vajra Yoga Teacher Training under the tutelage of Dr. Robert A.F. Thurman, Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, Michele Loew. Richard Freeman, & Mary Taylor. Her classes blend classical Hatha and Ashtanga sequencing with meditation techniques to inspire the wish to deliberately create the most meaningful life possible for oneself and for others. She has had the honor of teaching in a variety of settings from local studios and gyms to Forbes 5 Star & Relais & Chateaux resorts and spas.
Lyra is committed to remaining a life long learner in order to better serve those around her. In 2020, she received a SEE Learning™ certification; a K-12 education program for Social, Emotional, and Ethical learning created by Emory University in collaboration with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In 2021, Lyra completed Michele Loew's Clear Light Yoga Nidra teacher training. She currently has the pleasure of studying with Dr. Thurman and Michele Loew through their on going "Vajra Yoga" course offerings.
Kal is an experienced, registered, and certified yoga instructor (E-RYT200). In 2017, he traveled to Kathmandu, Nepal. There he received his 200-hour yoga teacher certification at Nepal Yoga Academy under the tutelage of Dr. Chintamani Gautam.
Kal also has an extensive background in recording and performing arts. Though native to Raleigh, NC, Kal spent nearly a decade in New York City as an independent singer-songwriter and had the opportunity to collaborate with artists and producers such as Grammy-winner Devo Springsteen, David Sisko, Ro James, Kreesha Turner, Andrea McArdle, Cybill Shepard, and MTV Making The Band's Ankh Ra Amenhotep.
In 2021, Kal's most recent musical project received significant local attention and was featured on Raleigh's WKNC 88.1 FM's "Hottest Tracks Now" playlist, with two singles in radio rotation.
Bio coming soon.
Founder & Executive Director
Teacher, author, musician — Adhi's vision is positioned at the intersection of design and human flourishing. Adhi's background is rich and diverse — and includes a B.A. in Philosophy from Bucknell University, Division I baseball, luxury hospitality management, professional music collaborations with Grammy-winning, U.K. Mercury Prize-winning, Korean Golden Disk-winning, #1, and multi-platinum artists, producers, and DJs, and lecturing on Yoga philosophy, Mystic Christianity, and Buddhist psychology, theory, and practice.
A voice for the prioritization of mind-body health within professional culture and educational institutions, Adhi has been a featured presenter at the 16th Annual NE Home Health Summit (Boston, MA), Methodist Home for Children's "Real World Virtual Series" (Raleigh, NC), and Annharriett Buck's "Wisdom & Grace Week" (Washington, CT).
After what Adhi describes as an "unsavory past", especially during his music years, a commitment to study and practice induced what he describes as a series of "sobering immersions", which radically altered the trajectory of his life. Adhi's message is simple: that consistent proximity to authentic teachings and mentors, coupled with our own sincere effort, inevitably catalyzes the emergence of our inherent purpose, clarity, and competence.
