Meet Todd Norian

Todd Norian, E-RYT 500, is the founder of Ashaya Yoga®, a style focused on precise biomechanical alignment. Ashaya (AH-shy-ah), a Sanskrit word that means, “abode of the heart”, blends precise, biomechanical alignment techniques with empowering and spiritually uplifting heart virtues that support a total awakening and harmony of body, mind, and spirit. This transformational yoga is more than just a “yoga workout”. In addition to building strength, balance, flexibility, and healing chronic pain, you leave each class calm, focused, and inspired to live the best version of yourself. When you are happy, everyone becomes happier around you. Change yourself. Change the world.

With warmth and humor, Todd teaches with the heartfelt intention of awakening others to their inherent potential for unlimited joy, vitality, and fulfillment. A student of yoga since 1980, Todd studied many styles of heart-centered and alignment-based yoga. He continues to study extensively with several tantric scholars, including Paul Muller-Ortega and Douglas Brooks. Todd teaches workshops and trainings internationally, and is a talented musician who has created several CDs of music for yoga.
