Barbara is the owner and founder of the Innersanctuary Healing Center since 2000. Barbara has been practicing, teaching, studying and researching the profound effects of yoga for the past 30 years. She has completed a three-month retreat in Nepal at the Shyalpa Monastery with direct teachings from her root teacher, Shyalpa Rinpoche. In 2000 she was given the name 'Pema Dechen' meaning the 'Great Blissful Lotus'. She has also traveled to India and blends her yogic knowledge with direct experiential knowledge from her travels and teachings from Shyalpa Rinpoche.
Her most recent undertaking is to delve deeper into the mind through the study of kundalini yoga and is certified as a kundalini yoga practitioner through the Kundalini Research Institute (KRI). She was given the name 'Siri Kirin Kaur' meaning the 'Great Ray of Light'.
Barbara teaches both hatha and kundalini yoga classes and also certifies Yoga Teachers in classical hatha yoga and also introduces kundalini yoga as an elective. Barbara believes that yoga is a sacred art form and should be practiced and taught as such. She believes a well-rounded teacher training should focus on all aspects of the yogic path. In addition to the physical asanas (postures), other aspects include personal and social guidelines, pranayama (breath), pratyahara (sense withdrawal), dharana (concentration), dhyana (contemplation) and samadhi (peace).
Barbara has a B.S. in Holistic Healing. She is certified in advanced meditation techniques and spiritual advising through the Kundalini Research Institute. She is a 500 hr RYT experienced yoga teacher and trainer and has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for 20 years and is certified in various alternative healing techniques.
