yogapata Lorin Roche Meditation Workshop 021515-11 copy
Lorin Roche, PhD

Dr. Lorin Roche was lucky enough to begin practicing asana, pranayama, and meditation in 1968, and he still feels like a beginner – every day. He was trained as a meditation teacher in 1969-1970 and has been sharing the delight ever since. Lorin is the author of Meditation Made Easy, Meditation Secrets for Women, and The Radiance Sutras. At the University of California at Irvine, his Master’s Degree work focused on the injuries and developmental crises provoked by meditation and opening the chakras; his Ph.D. research was on the language of inner experience in meditation - the way meditators describe their inner worlds. He lives in Marina del Rey, California with his yogini shaktini wife, Camille Maurine. lorinroche.com

Steven Leonard

"I find the experience of being alive, and the ability to reflect on life, to be the strangest and most wonderful thing imaginable. You could call me a life enthusiast. I'm also a meditation guide, musician, athlete and self-taught sushi chef.

I offer personal meditation instruction, play music in hospitals and assisted living facilities and lead 200-hour yoga teacher trainings. I also work at Kripalu Center, in the beautiful Berkshires, where I lead meditation classes, workshops and retreats. I earned a degree in exercise physiology, learned everything and nothing I know about meditation from Lorin Roche, Jonathan Foust and Coby Kozlowski (thank you), and am endlessly grateful for the infinite love and generosity of my family and friends. If you are looking for personal meditation instruction, have a family member who could use some joyful music or are interested in becoming a yoga teacher, send me a message below.

Thank you,

Steven Leonard

Dave Stringer

Dave Stringer is a Grammy™nominated record producer, singer and composer who has been profiled in publications worldwide as one of the most innovative artists of the new Kirtan movement. Stringer’s sound invokes the transcendent mysticism of traditional Indian instruments with the exuberant, groove-oriented sensibility of American gospel and the ringing harmonies of Appalachia. Initially trained as a visual artist, filmmaker and jazz musician, Stringer’s focus shifted significantly after video editing work brought him to an ashram in India in 1990. His work translates the venerable traditions of kirtan and yoga into inspiring and thoroughly modern participatory theatre, open to a multiplicity of interpretations, and accessible to all. Dave and his band have been touring tirelessly since 2000, playing concert halls and festivals all over the world.

Dave will be joining us to lead us in song and the path of music.

For the past 7 years, Dave has led many, many, incredible Sutra Jams, in which people read Sutras they love and a group of musicians improvises to the words.
