Stephen Kaleda, Yoga Instructor
Stephen took his first yoga class in May 1999 with the intention of finding a method of exercise that was enjoyable. What he got was a lesson, not only in physical exercise, but also in intention, self inspection and what it’s like to be in the absolute moment. The lesson has never ended. In 2003 Stephen completed his first yoga teacher training. He went to Palm Desert CA and started to teach and began to see the pure joy of the yoga practice in his students. With completing three more trainings in 2005, 2009, and 2014 Stephen has also developed and participated in teacher trainings, private classes and workshops. All of his classes are taught from the heart. Stephen’s classes can be challenging, humorous, and they are always filled with gratitude. His students have become his greatest teacher.
