Brad Crispin yoga in Carmel
Brad Crispin meditation in Carmel


I teach Yoga in Carmel, California in the Saraswati lineage, which was founded by Adi Sankaracharya in the 8th century AD as one of the ten classical monk orders in India. Its earliest roots are in Tantra. Its modern limbs comprise the Sivananda and Satyananda schools of yoga. These practices of the yogis of the Himalayas are rare in the West, the yoga of southern India having arrived earlier.

I trained to teach in New York City with Yogi Charu, studying 1:1 in the tradition of parampara, completing two RYT-200 certifications in Classical Hatha and Meditation in 2013.

Yoga / Yoga Nidra @ Yoga Center of Carmel

Yoga Nidra is a great way to get started with meditation.

It is a meditation done on the back. If you have 35 minutes and want to try it, get your headphones on and lie down in a comfortable position.
