About the Facilitator(s)

Joy Ravelli started her business when she was 20 years old while pregnant with her first child, Nicholai. She dropped out of college where she had almost completed her Health Education degree and began to spend her time within the college by providing fitness, health, and nutrition coaching to the staff and students. Soon Joy was leading her "Health In Motion" programs at several colleges and corporations throughout Massachusetts. She had her second child, Alexander, at the age of 23. She ran this business successfully in Massachusetts for 20 years. In 1999 Joy took her life long passion for Yoga into the center of her offerings and in 2004 while pregnant with her third child, Maleeha she created the Purusha Yoga School. The Purusha Yoga School has graduated over 300 students in both 200 hour and 500 hour Yoga Alliance and International Association of Yoga Therapists Recognized programs.

Family SkiingJoy founded the Purusha Seva Project i2008. The Purusha Seva Project became a 501C-3 Non-Profit organization in 2009. Joy says, "I wanted to create a vehicle..." (click here to continue reading about the Purusha Seva Project)

Joy completed writing a practical guide to the Yoga Sutras in 2009 and looks forward to it being published soon. She is currently writing other practical guides for her students to navigate their way through the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. "Writing helps me to understand these practices and has always been a way of expressing my deeper ideas and feelings."

Joy opened the Purusha Yoga Studio in San Francisco in 2011 as a way of providing opportunities for her teachers to share and grow while also nourishing a local community with a wide variety of classes, programs, and a place to gather and celebrate together.

The true spark of light that ignited the studio was the death of her son Alex in 2009.

"Alex has always been a source of great inspiration and guidance in this life. He continues to help me and our community understand the truth that is beyond our small perspective and seek the light and love of an existence without fear, hatred, and worry. Ultimately- my children have and always will be my greatest teachers, for they have taught me to let go of fear and let it all be love."

This is the true path of yoga: to let go of our head trip and connect to what is real. In the end there is only love.

Joy is certified in the following modalities:

  • Personal Trainer (ACE, AFFA)
  • Pilates (Physical Mind Institute)
  • Yoga (Frog Pond School, RYT 500 Yoga Alliance)
  • Thai Yoga Bodywork (Sunset Network, Thailand

Laxman Panthi was born and raised in Myanmar. He moved to Nepal at the age of 20 to practice and study Yoga Philosophy at the Tribhuvan University. He graduated from Tribhuvan in 2009 with a B.A. in English Education. He studied Sanskrit and Yoga Philosophy in India and Nepal, and taught Yoga at an English Medium School in Kathmandu for seven years. He also led Yoga camps for village youth, worked with seniors, and was a mentor and spiritual advisor for patients at a drug rehabilitation clinic. Laxman moved to the United States in 2010, and has been teaching Yoga and Meditation throughout San Francisco. He has taught at after-school programs in elementary schools, senior centers, family centers, and a number of studios.

Lillian So has been in the fitness industry for over 10 years. She started out as a personal trainer and noticed something was missing. She began a personal practice of yoga 7 years ago and found that the ease and truth she discovered on that path was one she wanted to share with her clients. Lil says "yoga allows me to integrate my life, client relationships, passions, and also helps to focus the mind and embody a truth that is essential to overall quality of life. I want my clients to push hard, sweat hard, have fun, and know that life and a workout does not have to be taken so seriously." Certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, Mat Pilates, Yoga Instructor, Yoga Therapist, and Thai Yoga Body Work.

About the Facilitator(s)

Paul TucciPaul Tucci

Paul worked for years as a bartender and assistant manager at an awesome  and popular SOMA (SF) dive bar. Physical alignment issues and a search for his spiritual side led him to the yoga mat. He began to teach hatha yoga in 2007. "Teaching is always inspiring when you see the transformation of the students over the yoga session". His classes are  slow flow hatha  with a sprinkling of pilates and yin yoga. He likes to say, in class,  that his voice is only a guide and that the students should take the responsibility to find what it is they need from their practice.

Paul has studied extensively with Ana Forrest, Erich Schiffman, Les Leventhal, & Tony Briggs. He is currently a big fan of yoga instructor Maria Stanford & Jean Mazzei. He recently took a detour to San Diego to get his Physical Therapy Assistant license, and is ecstatic to be back in the Bay Area. Paul currently teaches at the Sun Room in SF and is looking forward to his 3rd time teaching at Kalani.

One week package cost $1,250 per person for double occupancy shared bath and $1390 for double occupancy with private bath. See packet for other housing/cost options;  Two yoga classes daily and three delicious healthy meals daily. 

About the Facilitator(s)

Lynne took her first yoga class while in college, at the YMCA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Her first instructor and mentor, Trudy Davis, encouraged her to teach when she moved to Alaska in 1977.  She enrolled in the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco’s Teacher Training Program the summer of 1980. Encouraged by Donald Moyer, she attended her first yoga Intensive at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India in 1981. She was certified to teach yoga by BKS Iyengar in 1984. Subsequent trips to Pune followed in 1988 and 1997.

Lynne founded the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 1982 in Anchorage, Alaska and oversaw  its growth and development into a thriving center with 20 plus instructors for the next 26 years . She  started the Inner Dance Teacher Training program in 1999 which  trained over 100 yoga teachers in the 8 years of her  oversight of the program.   Lynne sold the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 2008.   She now travels the country and the world teaching yoga wherever she is invited.

Lynne  draws inspiration from yoga on and off the mat,  attending local classes and  sharing practice with others .  She honors her  teachers of  the Iyengar  tradition, Judith Lasater, Donald Moyer,  and  Fr. Joe Pereira .   Self-Realizaion Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda's organization, to which she was first exposed in 1978 is another continuing source of upliftment.   

Yogananda says, "The true purpose of life is to realize one's Self as wisdom and bliss".   Patanjali's yoga sutra book II, sutra 41 (Light on Yoga Sutras, BKS Iyengar translation) states, " When the body is cleansed, the mind purified and the senses controlled, joyful awareness needed to realize the inner Self, also comes."  My mission statement is to help myself and others to awaken joyful awareness through the practices of yoga;   asanas that cleanse the body, pranayama that calms the mind, concentration that controls the senses, and meditation for realizing the Inner Self.

Lynne grew up in Wisconsin. Her love of travel and degree in Environmental Geology brought her to play and work in Alaska in 1975.  That year she met future husband, Jim , and together they made Alaska home. They have been married since 1978.  Together they enjoy camping, flying, overseas travel and their wonderful community of family and friends. Lynne also loves to sing, hula, play her ukelele,  garden, bike and hike. She is in the process of relocating to Prescott, Arizona.
