Welcome. Namaste. Sat Nam.
My passion is to serve and offer guidance, compassion, and love.
About: I’m Krishna
I’ve been a yoga instructor for 10 years, bringing physical healing, spiritual insight, challenging vinyasa, and slow stretching mindful restorative practices to my fellow yogis. I’ve taught in studios, outdoors, schools, privately, and special events in NJ, NYC and upstate NY, and on three continents.
My instruction is based on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Bhagavad Gita and Ashtavakra Gita, the teachings of Osho , Sadhguru, and Yogi Bhahjan. I like to incorporate inspiration taken from modern writing, music, and popular culture.
My classes are driven by both humor and deep spiritual classical practices, infused with dharma talks and an emphasis on music and sound. I developed SOUL FOOD, a high energy class with a funk and soul music backdrop.
My teaching has expanded over the last few years, teaching yoga to those afflicted by Alzheimer’s disease, severe lower back trauma, and the autistic community. I am also on my way to becoming a certified Reiki master… stay tuned!
My passion is to serve and offer my guidance, yoga therapeutics, compassion, and love.

Music: Composition and Performance
I have been actively involved in the music business professionally for over 30 years. I’ve worked with such prominent artists as Herbie Hancock, Joe Strummer (The Clash), producer Nile Rodger (David Bowie, Madonna, Chic) and many others. In recent years I have focused on music for yoga and meditation.
I scored the soundtrack to Enlighten Up! a documentary film set out to prove that yoga can transform anyone.
I produced and mixed the album “ReBliss-Stars Revisited” by popular international yoga chant artist David Newman for the premier yoga record label White Swan.
I play a classical stringed Indian instrument called a Shahi Baaja. I like to play it live in vinyasa classes.
Here is some of my original music. I hope you enjoy it.
