About Yogi Steven
I have been practicing yoga, meditation and spirituality for 25 years and teaching for 15 years. In my personal experience, all of Life is the process of growing closer to the Divine Source. Through the practices of the Spirit Science of Yoga, we cultivate qualities in ourselves that bring our true inner Self into fuller alignment with Divinity. This alignment is often called "Enlightenment" or "Awakening". The "Yogi" is the one who is fully committed to the life and practices of the Spiritual Science of Yoga.
In my life, through the ancient, 6000 year old techniques of the yogic disciplines, I have completely healed and transformed:
drug and alcohol addiction
stress and tension
low self esteem
severe knee injuries (patellar dislocations, ligament and tendon damage)
chronic low back pain
sciatica (sacroiliac joint dysfunction)
asthma and allergies
Curing myself of these debilitating conditions has been an amazing blessing. But beyond that, I have learned the secrets of total rejuvenation and age reversal. I am becoming younger, stronger and more vital on a daily basis! I've gone from not being able to run at all to playing flag football competitively with young men half my age and competing in Masters track events.
I've hiked Mount Whitney, the tallest mountain in the United States and the holy mountain of Mount Kailash in Tibet at 18.500 feet. I am the originator of Earth Interaction Flow, a practice that combines trail running, hiking, yoga, animal flow and athletic training practices. I am currently founding YogAthlete.org to bring Yoga to the world of Athletics. For several years I have been organizing and leading “NoHo Chant Circle”, a gathering of people who enjoy chanting, singing, music and dancing in celebration of Divinity. During the Iraq War, I lead “Peace Walks” in 24 communities to practice and inspire the principle of “Peace in Oneself, Peace in the World”.
Yoga truly provides the basis for a full, complete, healthy, happy existence!
Whether you have your sights set on just feeling better in body, mind and spirit or want to walk the path all the way to Enlightenment, I can help you build a practice that will get you there. This is my purpose. Let me share it with you.
Mt. Kailash Pilgrimage
I accomplished the arduous pilgrimage to Mount Kailash in Tibet, the abode of Lord Shiva and considered by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains to be the holiest site on earth.
Siddha Yoga Initiate
I received diksha (initiation) into the Tamil Siddha Yoga lineage that goes back through Swami Ramalingam Vallalar to Thriumular via Swami Thirugnananantha in Coimbatore India in 2018. I also attended the Darshan of Divine Light (Jyothi) at Sathya Gnana Sabhai in Vadalur.
