Many of the Swami's in the ancient tradition are men. This book could not have been written by a man and it is with great joy that I share the mystical wisdom from the Kriya tradition from the perspective of a woman, swami and mother.
Camella has been practicing yoga since she was 17 years old, accompanying her mum to class where she lived in Bedford, England. Since that time, yoga has provided her the path on which she has traveled to this point in her life.
Because of her extensive training and life experiences, Camella has been inspired to create and develop programs for yoga teachers and students, so that they may find the same guidance and wisdom that a yoga path has brought to her. She is one of a few female swami’s and hopes to bring the ancient teachings to a level to be understand and utilized by all.
Camella’s education and experiences are quite extensive:
~E-RYT through the Temple of Kriya Yoga in Chicago and a certified Yoga therapist.
