Yoga Instructor Clifton Pakr, NY

Pam is said to be on the cutting edge of yoga teacher’s, not afraid to share or teach what others refrain from. She has been trained in many ancient arts and is the daughter of two interfaith ministers. Her father is a Reiki master. Her mother is a theologian. She has been blessed to be raised in an environment where spiritual energy is a reality. 
Pam’s lifepath calls her to quench the thirst of the soul for authentic truth, freedom of expression, and complete union. She became a Reiki practitioner at the age of 19, and began to study shamanism in her early twenties. Her college years sparked an interest in activism and she blossomed into a community organizer,
radiating into the southern Adirondacks. Pam was founder and organizer of The Living Earth Celebration and Pray For Peace in Glens Falls, NY after 9/11. She believes that now is the time to rise up, speak our truth (satya) and liberate our oursleves. In a world consumed with unfulfilling desires, yoga can help be our guide to true happiness.

Pam Lunz Medina (Chandra) began her study of yoga 21 years ago to fulfill a college requirement. Little did she know, it would lead her to a new way of life, spiral her deep into her soul and spark a calling to share it with the world. 
She received her certification in 2006 at Satchidanada Ashram, where she assisted in teacher training. She spent 2 years living without running water or electricity in the Ozark Mountains, which kindled a profound connection to the Earth Mother and meditative consciousness. 
Her solo journey through India gave her opportunities to teach, serve, and learn. During her free time she is an activist, writer, musician, wife, shamanic drummer, dancer, and soul adventurer, and always a goddess! Her vision is for oneness to emerge through the authentic expression of our creative life force.

After years of activism, and trying to make a shift from the outside in, she realized that the change would not come from the outer world, change had to come from the inside. Yoga help her to shift from urgent activism to living sacred ecology, a complete change of lifestyle. Originally certified in Integral Yoga, she continued her studies in Kundalini, Tantra, Meditation and Trance Dance. Her greatest joy is sharing with others the many tools she has been blessed with on her holy journey towards the endless within. She is the proud founder of The Yoga Lily, winner of the Reader's Choice Award's in Community News, and is anxious to share yoga with you.
