Meet Billy and Padma!
Billy Barefoot Yogi and Padma Dharmata will be your guides throughout this training!
Billy comes from a military family, and grew up experiencing an overwhelming amount of anxiety, but also many profound spiritual experiences, that culminated a unique history for him to find a way to transform his past into a useful tool to be able to help others through yoga, meditation, and self-inquiry. It was through a lengthy spiritual quest that led him to meditation, in which he began to work through his former anxiety. His meditation practice led him to teach others, who needed the same inner transformation, which then led him into a physical yoga practice, which began to heal and transform his body and mind even further. Inevitably, these experiences led him to become a yoga teacher, and to combine the spiritual, mental, and physical benefits of yoga into one holistic practice and teaching. Billy has been teaching meditation since 2004, and yoga since 2011.
It is through his yoga career, at his first hot yoga studio that he met Padma Dharmata (who has now been teaching yoga since 2012), and the two joined forces to take the truest and simplest form of yoga to the world.
