Sierra began her true yoga practice when she first practiced with Sarah Powers in 1990 or so. In an effort to find a teacher and an experience like what Sarah offered, Sierra began searching studios and classes everywhere. In 1992, she stumbled into Ahimsa Ashram in Washington, DC - finding not only the practice of her heart, Kundalini Yoga, but also the teacher of her heart, Yogi Bhajan. In 1994, Yogi Bhajan asked Sierra to bring Kundalini to Asheville, NC. In 1995, she did It and it has been a beautiful part of my life journey ever since. Along the way, Sierra became a mother, to three extraordinary souls who are also her teachers and helped her husband start Sundance Power Systems - a renewable energy design company in the mountains of Western NC. Sierra is also the founder of Light a Path, a nonprofit that is dedicated to bringing yoga, meditation and other wellness tools to the Incarcerated, Youth at Risk, People in Recovery, the Unhoused and low-income Communities. While Sierra considers herself a "Yoga Universalist" (loving all the paths of yoga and holding multiple certifications, Kundalini Yoga is both her greatest practice as well as her daily practice, always.
