Anthony “Prem” Carlisi and Heather “Radha” Carlisi came together as a teaching team in Sri Lanka in 2007. Soon afterwards they taught through Northern Europe and realized that together their combined energies created an even more powerful synergy.
Prem had begun writing his book “The Only Way Out is In” in 2006, and with Radha’s help he completed the project in 2007.
In 2008, they decided to explore Bali and quickly discovered that Ubud was their new OM away from home. The Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute was born in Ubud in 2009.
Prem and Radha both had the good fortune to study with Guruji personally for many years. They maintain the traditional system as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, their beloved Guruji who passed away in May 2009. Prem began learning from Guruji back in 1978.
Radha’s Ashtanga journey began by studying with Chuck Miller in 1990 followed by her first trip to Mysore in 1995.
They bring to their teaching the individualization that Krishnamacharya taught and passed to Guruji. Working in a personable way, they make the needs of each individual student a priority.
Prem is considered a “Doctor of Ayurveda” from his teacher Dr.Vasant Lad and has maintained a deep connection to the practice of Ayurveda as a lifestyle. Radha also has a deep interest in Ayurveda, particularly in the area of food and nutrition.
She has studied with Maya Tiwari and Amadea Morningstar and she credits Paul Pitchford , the author of Healing with Whole Foods, as being a big inspiration.
She shares her love of Ayurvedic cooking on a regular basis with cooking classes and as nutritional guidance in consultations.
