More About Benja
Benja’s practice started as a child and through each chapter of Benja’s journey they’ve had enough freedom to learn from many teachers. Due to this nature Benja has developed a unique skill set to offer creative classes. They lead with a soothing voice, beautiful lighting, good vibrations, relaxation, meditation and all their love.
Their Yoga of Fullness class is a spiritual practice for those who prefer consistency. Its roots are the seeds planted by the Eastern Satguru Sri Swami Sivanada. Benja’s Guru of this technique is the Shri Yogi Hari Ji, Master and creator of Sampoorna Yoga, the yoga of fullness.
“Yoga is a journey of transformation at all dimensions of the human being and I shine light on the map to these dimensions. I stay well tuned in order to practice and teach yoga as a holistic system in which the physical benefits are just one facet of a larger journey of self-discovery.” - Benja Shurtleff
