Chétana Jessica Torrens co-founded the Akhanda Yoga approach and has facilitated philosophy, methodology and transformational experiences sessions for about 25 Akhanda Yoga Teacher Training programs. She also offers workshops and is a YTT guest lecturer in yoga philosophy and history,
teaching methodology and everyday mindfulness.

Chétana is currently the Program Coordinator for Akhanda Yoga. Her MA in Education was a great stepping stone into her 15 years of experience in designing the curricula and manuals for continuing education retreats and Yoga Teacher Training programs at the 200 and 300-hour levels and beyond. She has a particular interest in what makes a great trainer and is proud to have trained and mentored all of the Akhanda YTT facilitators. Chétana is thrilled to sit as an advisor on the YA Teacher Trainer Qualifications Working Group.

A writer, she has published a number of articles and blog posts on Yoga in the news, teaching and holistic living. Chétana has been blessed to have the opportunity to explore the yoga of motherhood and the moment-to-moment presence being with children can inspire.
