I signed up for Pam’s VK immersion hoping to deepen and reconnect to my home practice.
I received so much more. The intensive with Pam gave me such a vital gift and an integrative approach to studying and practicing a truly authentic Yoga. She is masterful in her instruction and her exceptional depth and knowledge of core fundamentals offer a unique and comprehensive Yoga experience with a focus on breath, Pranayama, Kriyas, Ayurveda and philosophy. The course was outstanding and features key components often neglected in many classes and western teacher training courses. Not only do I have a daily practice curated by Pam but a precise and intelligent approach to an equally nurturing and challenging one. I’m so very grateful to her deep reverence to her teachers and a deep bow in gratitude for sharing this incredible approach to well being in body, mind, soul and breath. I highly recommend this truly an artful offering of traditional and healing ancient teachings for all levels and with a consideration for contemporary lifestyles.

Pam Johnson is a Master Teacher, a teacher of teachers. She stands tall amongst the rare few of humble modern yoga experts carrying authentic teachings and upholding the integrity of yoga.
"Free from any contradicting and confusing practices of commercial and branded yoga, Pam brings a refreshing acumen of yogic training. Schooled for over twenty years by one of Krishnamacharya's longest standing disciple's outside his family, Srivatsa Ramaswami and realized Himalayan Yoga adepts and Vedic scholars, I feel safe that what I receive from Pam is nothing I'll need to 'unlearn' later.
"Being a yoga teacher, and a student under a Himalayan Master myself, I am cautious and discriminating about who I study with. Pam is a gem, a humble transmitter of the Himalayan Vinyasa Krama system and an artist at articulating the energetics, physical intelligence and depth of this system in an accessible way. I've had so many 'ah-ha' moments studying with Pam. She just knows how to bring it all together without watering it down. Besides new discoveries in my own practice, I've learned so much from her to share with my students. Plus she knows all the nuances of the system and maintains it's purity without convoluting anything. I have yet to find anyone like her!"
