Bio

OH Prema is an instructor who emphasizes a subtle, sensory oriented relationship with breath and body. Her mode is to play with sequences that continually come back to body-heart centering, that strengthen, align, and flow. In this vein she is a self-love adventurer. Pranayama, chanting, and a deeply personal experience are essential to her classes. Additionally, her passions lie in neuroscience and Sanskrit, of which she is currently studying at Columbia University.

As a mother and a student, OH has found yoga to be key to a deeper relationship with her children and herself. Coming home to the present moment again and again- especially in challenging, life-lesson moments- brings her the greatest meaning and deepest joy. She likes the weirdly uncomfortable times (weird, huh), the clear moments, the dissonance and resonance, the heart cleave and the soul bath. She feels that all of these things have the potential to be held in this very moment.

OH took her 1st teacher training through 8 Limbs Yoga in Seattle, Washington in 2005 and then continued on to receive her 200hr YTT from SOLA School in Portland, Oregon in 2014. She has completed training in Experiential Anatomy and is working toward her 500 hour teacher training through SOLA School as well.

OH is forever humbled and grateful for this path.
