Formal Schooling:

Waterford Kamhlaba, United World College of Southern Africa, O levels and International Baccalaureate

Princeton University, Bacchelor of Arts in Comparative Literature, certificate in European Cultural Studies

Harvard University, Masters Degree from the Graduate School of Education - created my own degree by crossing into the graduate schools of Design, Law, Divinity, Government, and the undergraduate college to explore how we create a Citizen (healthy, responsible, actualized, alive and contributing)

Basically, this is the most expensive preparatory program for yoga teacher training that one could construct. But, it gave me a profound love of the world, an ability to study deeply and truly into texts ancient and modern, and an ability to create and design meaningful learning experiences that teach through inhabitance rather than intellect alone.
