Siddhi's School of Yoga Brings Inner Peace to Santa Barbara

By Elisha Neubauer

Siddhi, owner of Siddhi's School of Yoga in Santa Barbara, California, started her spiritual path at the young age of 17. While Siddhi originally began searching for a therapist to help her cope with some daunting life circumstances, she found her way to an Indian teacher, who placed her on the path that would define the rest of her life.

"Over the years I learned that there is not one discipline that can fulfill all my needs," Siddhi said. "I learned to understand the importance of a combined approach of diverse teachings."

Siddhi background in psychology, pedagogy, and methodology combines perfectly with yogic science. It allows her to support others in their spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical healing process to a whole new extent.

"Allowing the client to realize, understand and to implement the body-mind connection is crucial for the acceleration of one's own healing journey," Siddhi said. "My teaching approach is founded in the philosophy of that each of us can improve by dropping the need to prove."

When it comes to her classes, Siddhi has realized that every person is different, everyone needs something else. Each client requires a different approach, which she cites as the reason she has remained encouraged to further her education over the last 17 years of her teachings.

Wanting to contribute her own knowledge, skills, and experience to the practice, Siddhi created the Organ Cleanse, a multifaceted approach to cleanse and to revitalize the organs, enhancing more self-acceptance and self-love.

"I have been teaching the Organ Cleanse for over 16 years with the focus that each person learns to relate to her/his inside the same way as they relate to their beloved," Siddhi said. "In the Organ Cleanse we are not only concentrating on getting "rid" of something, but also on what we need/want to bring in."

The program runs for 11 days, with each day focusing on a different organ/system. It teaches organ specific movements, breathing, mudras, meditations, and mantras. A few homework assignments are also involved and include self-exploration requiring the student to look into their relationship with their body and self.

"I offer these Cleanses on a one on one basis in the comfort of one's home or as small group settings," Siddhi said.
