I feel life is a consistent state of evolution that requires conscious action based on smart decisions to guide our individual life experiences. Through yoga, meditation, aromatherapy and energy medicine, I encourage a more mindful way of healing and enjoying life.

In my Hatha-based approach to teaching, you will be guided to unify & balance the duality of energies that naturally reside within - Feminine & Masculine.

In your heart-based session, you will embrace the intimate connection of body, mind and soul which ensures an experience that cultivates love, light and unity.

Feel confident in knowing that my guidance is always kind, compassionate and authentic. You are ensured to enjoy a journey of self-love and self-care in each session, in turn feeling grounded and secure.

In a world where action is everything and rest is highly underrated, you can feel safe and supported working with me, being reminded to take time out of your busy lives to love and care for yourself through Wisdom, Love & Presence.

Based on these answers, we will create a customized practice just for you! Incorporating the tools of breathwork, physical movement, stillness, and guided meditation to bring ourselves back to home base, my approach is to simply guide students back to the innate wisdom that already exists within.

Sujantra McKeever


Sujantra has a flexible schedule so times can include:

  • Mondays: 12:00 PM
  • Tuesdays: 1:00 PM
  • Wednesdays: 12:00 - 2:00 PM


  • Meditation

What to expect in a Private Yoga Session with Sujantra McKeever:

In your one-on-one session, we will focus on why you want to meditate, refining (or starting!) your daily practice, and choosing specific meditations to meet your needs.

I recommend a single session to get your practice started and additional sessions to refine.  The most important thing is to get your practice started on solid footing with clarity on what meditation is and how it can help you.

What to expect in a Private Yoga Session with Sydney Cohen:

A private with me first starts with meeting your needs.  Are you looking for more movement or for a slow restorative lesson with more meditation? Everyone is different and every session could be different depending on what your body needs at that moment.  Expect hands-on adjustments, gentle massage, and craniosacral therapy.

One of my specialties is working with injured folks. Injured individuals can expect to learn how to do postures with adjustments and props for that injury and help rehabilitate that area. We can use the rope wall for traction therapy. I will also demonstrate props at home that can be used for traction therapy as well. I use essential oils and play healing music to create a relaxing environment.
