Foundational to our practice is the belief that the quality of attention determines the quality of life. Mindfulness is at the heart of transformation. It is also recognized in modern science and education as an effective tool for potentiating individual and communal wellness.
There is ample scientific evidence that interoceptive practices like meditation and yoga reduce stress, improve sleep, strengthen the prefrontal cortex of the brain, boost immunity and improve the health of the microbiome. So why, with the influx of mindful studies available, do we remain unnerved and disconnected?
In the west, we share a cultural narrative that if we aren't doing, we aren't worthy. In our offerings we emphasize what we consider to be a fundamental truth, that being present is more important than being productive.
To address the chronic anxiety and stress we witness in people today, we are committed to offering exceptional, useful, and diverse tools in somatic and meditative studies that meet at the convergence of philosophy, science, tradition, and personal experience. Informed and inspired by Zen Buddhism, Daoyin Arts, Ayurveda, and Hatha Yoga, we are deeply devoted to the journey in.
We are reshaping our advanced yoga teacher training methodology due to the changing landscape of yoga culture in the West. We are partnering with our sister studio Anahata Yoga in Minturn, Colorado for all 200HR offerings.
We are also mentoring select and exceptional candidates through what we call our Wholehearted Dharma Mentorship. This is a year long certification program focused on deeply supporting sensitive and courageous leaders in the field of yogic studies and teaching.
Our 2021 Mentorship program is currently full, however we are accepting inquiries for 2022. Please reach out to Morgan at to begin a conversation.
"Aarunya’s training went above and beyond simply learning asanas. I’ve emerged from my 200 HR YTT with a rich and solid foundation—a deep understanding of yoga’s physical, intellectual, and spiritual legacies over its long journey through history and evolving cultures. Morgan and Chelsea were also available and committed to my personal growth on my own yogic journey. This foundation will undoubtedly guide and texture my teaching, giving it a depth and authenticity that will better allow me to serve and connect with students. This training is as good as it gets."
"Aarunya Yoga School gives you far beyond just a certification. YES, you will come out of this training with extensive anatomy and physiology knowledge and expansive intellectual wisdom. However, you will also graduate with a robust understanding of the spiritual path of a yogi. Morgan and Chelsea guide you towards the light that is inside. You will learn to step into the grace and authenticity that is at your core. It is a true journey of the heart deliciously paired with the confidence and ability to guide any style of yoga you align with."
"It is one of those life-changing experiences, and you won't even feel like the same person after the training. The most important thing I learned was to accept myself and love me. You will cry (a lot), you will laugh, you will be uncomfortable and you will be scared, but in the end you will never regret this experience. Thank you Morgan for sharing your knowledge and opening the doors, it was such great experience."
"Morgan stands out as having exceptional abilities to connect with others on deep levels and to work on her own personal growth. Morgan is both strong and sensitive, having the ability to intuit what is going on with those around her and then holding space for them or taking action as appropriate. She is very engaging and fully present in her interactions and has a unique ability to connect and engage deeply with others on a variety of levels – mental, spiritual, and emotional."

"While there are numerous characteristics that define a dedicated student of yoga perhaps two of the most essential Morgan embodies both naturally and with grace. These include her sincerity as a seeker to constantly learn, evolve and grow her understanding of the intangible/spiritual dimension of life and her willingness to bring her own uniqueness, perspective and interpretation to this understanding making it creatively her own. It’s through Morgan’s capacity to grasp the deeper teachings intellectually that enables her to assimilate and translate them, as a response to herself as a unique individual and through the lens of her personal experience, in a delivery that is both grounded and authentic.
