Kripa Patra Rode
For as long as Kripa Patra Rode can remember, she’s been drawn towards Eastern philosophies and disciplines of body/mind. Yoga came to her in 1988. and during that time, she was dancing classical ballet and later competed in bicycle racing on the East coast of the US. Yoga became her quiet companion and helped in the development of these disciplines.
When relocating to Miami Beach in 1998, she was introduced to Ashtanga yoga, which she found to be the perfect combination of movement and stillness. It was then, that she decided to devote herself completely to this path, received a teacher certificate and started teaching in South Beach, FL. The next 3 years were spent in travelling across the US to study with various talented teachers.
