Grounded and honest, she will give you feedback that will bring you out of your comfort zone and confront the deep un-layering that is needed to be a true yogi.

I have known Peewee for more than 4 years. She is an accomplished yoga teacher and a unique one. She is a gifted teacher who combines innate skill, humility, dedication, compassion, patience, and indomitable spirit to guide aspirants on the path. Peewee has guided many yoga teachers and practitioners in different stages of their yogic journey. I have seen her inspire them graciously. Her ability to adapt Himalayan Kriya Yoga into her teachings has opened her to explore higher awareness and flow. She is keen to absorb and share many of the profound Himalayan techniques of ascension and awareness.
