Dancer, Yogi, Linguist, Chef, Poet, Jeweler, Classical Musician and Lover of Life… Joel has drowned himself in the ocean of Yoga and never came back. He was first initiated in a traditional Kriya Yoga path in 2000, which sparked a period of 10 years of intensive Sadhana, Self inquiry and Self discovery. Joel met his gurus, Sri Karunamayi, Sri Shivabalayogi and Sri Amritanandamayi Ma around 2005 and spent years studying Integral Yoga and absorbing the wisdom of Being from the presence of many great saints, sages and enlightened masters. Since 2010 Joel has dedicated his time and energy to maintaining a sacred space to explore and experience this great Joy and Freedom of Awakening through Integral Yoga, conscious living, community and creativity. Joel advocates simple and healthy living, coming back into harmony with the natural cycles of Life, and integrating the Body, Heart and Mind as a conscious wholeness. He has great respect for traditional culture and integrated living, which is one of the reasons that he set up his center for Integral Yoga and Awakening in Siem Reap, Cambodia near the ancient temples of Angkor. Joel is present and teaching during almost all of the retreats and is available for questions. One book of dharma talks, The Foundations of Stillness, was published in 2013. There are currently two more books of talks from early 2014, Seeds of Dharma, which will be released later this year.
Bianca is the Head Yoga teacher at Hariharalaya. She holds a Master’s Degree in Education and is a Yoga Alliance certified Yoga Instructor with over 1000 hours of study and formal training in a variety of Yoga disciplines, Ayurveda and healing modalities. She has been teaching yoga since 2011 between Fort Lauderdale, Florida and the last two summers at a luxury resort in Bali, Indonesia. At Hariharalaya, she teaches daily yoga classes, leads workshops, private lessons and also offers Thai Yoga Bodywork Sessions.Bianca embarked upon her yoga journey 8 years ago, and began a consistent dedicated practice in the summer of 2009. Initially the physical and mental challenge of yoga classes motivated her, but as she persevered she discovered the true yoga was much deeper than a physical and mental exercise. The integration of asana (postures), pranayama (breath techniques) and meditation proved to be healing from the inside out.
