Peter LavinaPeter's yoga practice and study started in 1990 at the Yoga Institute in Houston. His yogic journey took him to the Big Island of Hawaii in 1999 to continue his studies under Kathy Elder, where he graduated from Kalani's Yoga Teacher Training in 2001. In 2005 he took his level of study to a deeper level when he journeyed to Varanasi, India to study in an ashram with other yogis on the banks of the Ganges. In 2010, he opened the Ganga Ghat Yoga Studio in Ganges, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, where he currently teaches Hatha and Kundalini classes. Peter believes the life science which is yoga has the ability to transform both the individual, and thus society. "Through the practice one unblocks the blockages that prevent an individual from achieving their ultimate human potential"...
