Philosophy Teacher: Latika
Latika Pierrette Claude began her 200 hour studies at Kripalu with Jashoda Edmunds and Brahmani Liebman in 2006. In 2007 she completed the SOYA 300 hour upgrade working one-on-one with Marion (Mugs) McConnell.
Latika wanted to deepen her own personal practice and believed the deepest teachings would be in a yoga teacher training. She has found yoga to be a path of discovery that never ceases to amaze and delight her! It wasn’t long before she realized that the best way to share the gifts of yoga is by teaching it to others.
Latika has a passion for Yin Yoga, whom she learned from Sarah Powers and Bernie Clark. She has studied Tantra yoga with Rod Stryker and Pandit Rajmani Tigunait at the Himalayan Institute, and Erich Schiffmann’s Freedom Yoga at the SOYA Annual Retreats. Latika lives full time in Mexico, spending summers in Ajijic and winters in Melaque, where she is the owner of Latika Yoga Studio.
