About your instructors
Steve Fazzari, aka Shankara Deva Om
Steve’s journey towards clarity and creating space for inner silence started at a young age when he began studying Eastern philosophies and Buddhist teachings.
Drawn to movement as a way of achieving mindfulness, Steve pursued snowboarding and skiing, mountain biking, and classical music training as a way of facilitating peaceful moments.
Discovering yoga became another powerful tool for personal growth.
Steve has completed advanced and senior-level training with the living master Sri Dharma Mittra. Much like Dharma, Steve has felt drawn towards being a teacher of teachers. He was an instructor at Karma Teachers in Vancouver, and helped develop curriculum during his many years at the studio.
The mark of a true master is to be able to share teachings with a wide variety of diverse thinkers and find common ground; this is where Steve’s expertise resides. Grounded in science and philosophy, Steve believes these teachings can be accessed and understood from many different viewpoints and by people from all walks of life.
