The story of InnerSea Yoga Academy begins with you. Your true nature, your essence, your Source, your Light. For each of us is a manifestation of pure awareness, of unconditional love; That is our natural state. What draws us out of this ocean of wisdom is that we falsely identify as separate. We cling tightly to small aspects of ourselves, constantly changing pieces, and the effort to hold on is so great that we suffer as a result. It is like trying to catch a waterfall in your hands — a futile attempt to hold what is outside ourselves… Until we turn within. Until we seek the ocean of wisdom that is the depth of our soul.

Our mission at InnerSea Yoga Academy is to provide the teaching and support you need to connect to the innate Truth that already lies within you.


We began this journey under the name of Gypsea Yoga School as we are all in a constant state of change and becoming, and the sea is where we find connection and profound bliss. However, this identity has proven to be shallower than intended, as the changing aspects of ourselves are such a small portion of our whole being. In fact, the ever-steady consciousness (Brahman in Sanskrit) is the totality of existence. We already are Pure Awareness. Our new brand, InnerSea Yoga Academy, reflects this teaching.

Therefore, let the outside world be a mirror. Every time you begin to look outward, let the reflection you see to guide you back to your innate ocean of wisdom within.

At InnerSea Yoga Academy, we believe that our natural state is one of peace and tranquility — that an ocean of bliss already lies within you. And yet, most of us experience turbulent, choppy waves due to our identification with the external world and a narrow perception of our Truth.

Our mission at InnerSea Yoga Academy is to provide the transformational tools you need to calm the waves of your mind so you can reclaim your innate potential and awaken to your Truth — the ocean of wisdom that is the depth of your soul.
