Who Is Dr. Lorin Roche?
Dr. Lorin Roche has been a teacher of meditation for over 50 years, having studied at UCLA and Esalen Institute. His approach to meditation combines body awareness, movement, mudra, mantras, visualizations, and above all, individuality.

Here's what those who know him say..

Lorin is on the front lines as a meditation teacher, a champion of natural meditation, of awakening consciousness everywhere, in all places, in all times. He is bringing over into the Western world the deepest teachings of Tantra, giving them voice to sing out clearly.”
             Shiva Rea, Samudra School of Living Yoga
“Lorin Roche is probably the friendliest meditation teacher in America.”
            James Fadiman, Institute of Transpersonal Psychology."

“If you love Rumi, Hafiz, The Tao, if you love words dancing out of the mystery, welcome to The Radiance Sutras: these are among the most profound, exquisite and luminous verses you will ever read.”
           Jack Kornfield, Author of A Path With Heart

"Lorin Roche's rendition of the Vijnana Bhairava is truly radiant, filled with insight and poetry, and illumined by the power of his practice."
                                                        Sally Kempton
Arrive Early At The Retreat and take in the Early Asana Classes!Everyone will receive a copy of this sacred tantric text filled with love and a unique interpretation from Dr. Lorin Roche. 

Our SOYA Faculty are weaving their insights from the Sutras and Yuktis into themed asana classes. You'll get to experience luminous connections between the centers of the body; nyasa or touch with mantras; mudras with mantras to invoke the frequencies of earth, water, fire, air and ether; breath with asana to infuse out bodies with spaciousness; chakra opening to energize your day, and gently listening to the whispering of our heart. 
Mugs McConnell and Dariel Vogel are the Founders of the SOYA Yoga Teacher Training. We are both super excited to share a class with you! 25 years ago we put our experience and heads together to formulate the initial 500 hour training. Over the years the training has evolved to include not only the classical teachings, but also the wisdom of current science and experience.

We feel so blessed that SOYA has made it this far, training over 800 yoga teachers at both the Yoga Alliance standards and the International Yoga Teachers Association standards (IYTA). 

We look so forward to teaching a class for you at this event!
