Jaime Carlo-Casellas, Ph.D.
a.k.a. Yogi Kabir
I founded Tantric Yoga for Men in Cathedral City, California to welcome and guide the mosaic of men interested in discovering and sharing their Tantric energy and vitality with each other.
My intent has been to provide a safe, nurturing space for men to lose their inhibitions and enjoy gentle yoga and meditation without the restriction of clothing.
My vision is to see all of us resonate with each other and live in a world where stress and anxiety do not eclipse our Tantric energy ⁓ the highest form of energy available to us.
I hold a Ph.D. in Experimental Immunopathology and received my training in Mindfulness in Medicine at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. And since my doctoral training included anatomy and physiology, I am able to coach you on the proper and safe alignment of the different yoga postures.
In addition to being a Registered Yoga Instructor, I am a Certified Life Coach, a Thai Yoga Therapist, and a Reiki Master. Also, I am an ex-member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
As a poet, I integrate some of my poetry into most of my sessions. I am also an author and my publications and editorials appear in LA Yoga Magazine, Healthy Times Newspaper, Health and Fitness, and Desert Health News.
My books, Chaos & Bliss and Anguish & Joy, is are collections of verse and poetry that address the chaos in our lives that interferes with our happiness, healing, and empowerment. My latest books, Mindfulness for the Common Man and Solo Contamos con Una Vida, focus on how the practice of mindfulness can help you learn how to enjoy the vividness and exquisiteness available to you in the present moment by letting go of the past and not worrying about the future.
