Shel Stein, A fellow seeker still on the path, occasional Hatha Yoga and Meditation Teacher, who believes in sharing his Teachers’ Knowledge.

Shel completed a Hatha Yoga Teachers Training with Swami Naranda Devi during 1980s. What little time he was able to spend with his teachers, he felt honored to have learned from them.

Their teachings were of immense benefit. Their knowledge can be life altering experience in the most positive sense.

After my Teachers left their physical form, I had the inspiration to write their meditation in the form of a poem. About a week ago I met a former student of Naranda's at Whole Foods and she was very happy to find out I had shared some of my videos on line. She had mentioned how fortunate we were to have had our Teachers, and since then she had never met or heard anyone like them.

I had completed the curriculum and received a certification for Swami Naranda's Teacher's Training course during mid 1980's, which basically qualified me as a Hatha yoga instructor. Dr. Mishra often said, 'We should be careful what we wish for... Whatever I learned about yoga and meditation, I give full credit to my Teachers.
