"Life is an evolutionary process. When a true change takes place within us, it is subtle and magnificent. We begin to understand the responsibility, power, and freedom we have. Then it becomes easier to take great care of ourselves on all levels. Our relationships improve; we find contentment in a life of sharing, respect, and freedom. Having the courage to be direct, gentle, and honest honors the temple of our soul." - Myra Lewin
Myra Lewin has studied, practiced, and taught Sustainable Yoga, Ayurveda, nutrition, meditation, and energy management for decades.
Previously, Myra had a diverse career in the fields of medicine, executive management, and business consulting. Her experience as a corporate executive and consultant provided the jumping off point for her current path. Through Yoga and Ayurveda, Myra obtained complete healing from life-threatening diseases and has since guided many people from destructive habits to fulfilled and vital living.
Myra's studies and teaching come primarily from the Krishnamacharya lineage. The asana is drawn from Iyengar, Ashtanga, and the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli. Her training in Pranayama comes from O.P. Tiwari of Kaivalyadama Institute and Iyengar teachings.
Myra has a Certificate of Advanced Clinical Study in Ayurveda, through the Practitioner Training Program with Dr. Sunil Joshi at Vinayak Ayurveda Chikitsalaya, Nagpur. She is an ERYT500 with Yoga Alliance, holds a 500 hour certificate from International Yoga Studies, and is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
For over 12 years, Myra has conducted teacher trainings emphasizing a harmonized approach to Sustainable Yoga and Ayurveda. Hale Pule, her Yoga Alliance registered school, offers 200 hour and 500 hour trainings blending Ayurveda and Yoga.
From the island of Kauai in Hawaii, USA, and around the globe, Myra offers individual counseling, meditation retreats, teacher trainings, workshops, and conference presentations. She is also a mediator, minister in The Church of Aesclepion Healing, organic farmer, and Ayurvedic cook. Myra works with people in any stage of life, including the elderly and those recovering from addiction. Her in-depth knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, and psychology enables her to approach people at their starting point, encouraging the integration of healthy balanced practices as a foundation for life.
Freedom in Your Relationship with Food: an Everyday Guide, Myra’s 2009 publication, offers practical guidance from the principles of Ayurveda and Yoga. It explains how to reawaken our sacred connection to what we consume. It is available in print, ebook, and audio.
Simple Ayurvedic Recipes was released in December 2011. Taking the guesswork out of Ayurvedic cooking, this book is a tool for creating delicious meals that are balanced and fully satisfying for all constitutions. It is now available in print and as an ebook.
With her focus on growth and service, Myra also enjoys world travel, surfing, hiking, and playing with her dogs. Her students benefit from the example of her joy-filled life as much as from her teachings.
