Lee’s personal application of yoga and meditation to life challenges began during a time of loss and grief when she had nowhere to go except to her practice. Through her yoga studio, she began to see how all the students who came, whether they knew it or not, were there for more than just a physical workout. In the intimate moments of practice, she realized everyone was craving a deeper understanding of their life experiences, and a desire to find their true purpose. To meet this need, she began combining techniques from her Master’s work in Spiritual Psychology, with the practices taught in the Yoga Sutras.
Now, with over 45, 000 teaching and counseling hours under her belt, and 23 years of personal practice of these teachings, she is a testament to the fact that yoga holds the keys to getting through the difficult times in life and our ability to emerge from them in joy.
