The Texas Yoga Center Certification Course is a registered school with the National Association of Certified Yoga Teachers -

I honor my teacher, Lex Gillan, who has trained thousands of yoga instructors and mentored many into a yoga business. Drawing on that knowledge and experience I was certified as an instructor in 1999, completed numerous yoga and meditation workshops and advanced teacher training programs, and began Texas Yoga Center-Yoga Teacher Certification Course in 2010.

I honor Sunita Tarkunde, Dr. Jay Apte, Dr. Mamta, Dr. Ranede and Dr. Lele for my education and diploma as an Ayurveda Practitioner through the Ayurveda Institute of America in 2003.
