    Marc Mukunda Morozumi, E-RYT 500, CMT, Integral Yoga Lead Teacher Trainer, began practicing Ashtanga Yoga in 2001 while a full-time modern dancer with Joe Goode Performance Group in SF, CA. Due to injury, Mukunda retired from his dance career in 2004 and entered the events industry for a 12-year career. In 2007, he was able to make a 2-month trip to India as a personal journey. After enjoying an immersion at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala and visits to Auroville and others, he chose to deepen his practice with a teacher training in Yogaville in 2009 with Swami Divyananda and staff. One month after returning from graduation, Mukunda began teaching a Saturday morning class at the SF IYI, which he maintained for over ten years. In 2016, Mukunda left a full-time career as a Project and Operations Manager at a celebrated event design company in SF, CA, to create a full-time life teaching Yoga. Mukunda has co-led Integral Yoga retreats since 2011 and has staffed or co-led 200-hour Teacher Trainings since 2013. He has opened and managed small group Yoga studios in San Francisco since 2017. As a result of the turn of events of 2020, he opened and then reformed a wellness center: Mukunda Studio—a space for classes, studio rentals, and community building located in SOMA, San Francisco, CA.

Seeing Challenges as Guideposts Towards Peace: Online Program

Tuesdays, Aug. 9, 16, and 23: 7–8:30 p.m.
Sunday, Sep. 4 – Bonus Q&A: 6–7 p.m.

Our current times give us plenty of reason to feel frustrated, disrupted, and even helpless. How do we find a way out of these feelings? Can we imagine that life will ever become better?

Sometimes, even the idea that we need to transform something “bad” into something “good” can feel triggering. What if we could see the moment in time for what it is and then gain clarity in order to make our best move forward? What if we had an opportunity to practice awareness, acceptance, and action?

We can’t change the past, but we can transform our relationship with life events and see all experiences as guideposts. Shifting our perspective can help us to gain deeper wisdom and uncover purpose. Marc Mukunda will share his motivation for daily Yoga practice and living life on life’s terms. Whether struggling with personal or worldly stressors, join to discuss how challenging situations can become more manageable and serve as the directional arrows to a more intentional life.

In this online workshop series we will have time to write, meditate, discuss, and share as we investigate each of these yogic teachings:

  • Tue. Aug. 9: Oneness of the Coin with Two Sides: Conscious Awareness and Duality
  • Tue. Aug. 16: Pressing Pause then Play: Non-attachment, Practice, and Purpose
  • Tue. Aug. 23: Help is on the Way and Within: Peace as Stillness and Movement
  • Sun. Sept. 4: Q&A

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until October 18.
