Serge Berliawsky

Serge has been practicing the yogic arts of India and Tibet since his youth and teaching yoga for over 15 years. His approach evolves out of a deep transmission from younger years living in Kula, a yogic community, engaging in lengthy daily practice before dawn, and undergoing rigorous study with his teachers. In classes, he blends his knowledge of traditional yogic practice and philosophy with thousands of hours of training in Ashtanga, Yin, Rudra, Vinyasa, and Kundalini yoga.

Gloria Baraquio

Gloria discovered yoga in 2003 and realized that the breath, body awareness, and mindfulness could relieve so much of human suffering, disease, and disorder. After years of dedicated self-study and independent practice, she completed her formal yoga teacher training at Yoga Hawaii with master teachers Rupali Embry and Tania Jo Ingrahm. Gloria began teaching Vinyasa yoga in 2006 at schools, colleges, gyms, and studios. Since then, she has taught thousands of classes in Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Aerial, and kids yoga, as well as meditation to various populations all over the country.

Panama Maharaja Baba

Panama Maharaja is currently traveling, preaching, and sharing his transcendental experiences with yoga ashrams, schools, retreats, gurus, sadhus, rishis, priests, shamans, orphaned children, homeless people, as well as rich aristocratic, human, and non-human beings, spreading the sublime love messages of universal love fellowship without distinction of race, color, and religion all over the world. He has been practicing all types of yoga including Bhakti-Mantra yoga, oriental meditations, Vedic shamanic ceremonies, Rastafari esoteric, and exoteric teachings.

Pranathi Reddy

Growing up in a traditional South Indian household, Pranathi Reddy was exposed to the ancient Vedic practices of meditation, mantra, and yoga since the age of five. She started following her mother’s lineage when she was 16 and was initiated into the Sri Vidya teaching through her first teacher, Sri Amritananda Natha Saraswati of Devipuram, India. Pranathi has recently joined the NSEV Healing and Acupuncture clinical team where is offering a wide variety of meditation and cultivation techniques for children, adults, and families.

  • Review by Momoko from Tokyo, Japan
    10 out of 10

    "I don't know where to start...but this retreat certainly changed my life and transformed me beyond expectation! (and believe me, I'm usually rather skeptical about comments like this...;D). It was way more than just a yoga teacher training, which was indeed very thorough, effective, informative and practical. I experienced a super kind and loving community created by the great teachers, staff and all the students. There was a unity and peace I've never experienced in my life (and imagine it's created by about 30 total strangers you'd never met before!) Through learning, sharing and living together, I deepened understanding about myself and others...and I was healed from deep within. I'm truly grateful for Serge and Gloria for leading such an amazing retreat and everybody joined this amazing journey with me...I couldn't recommend Shivakali experience more! Take this step and you won't regret!"

    "My 200 hour YTT in Hawaii with Shivakali Yoga was an absolutely incredible experience. I am so glad that your website lead me to them. The KMEC location was rustic, off-grid and one of a kind. I would go back there on my own as a vacation destination. "

    "As for the yoga; I'm not sure I have to words to describe what a beautiful gift and journey it was. Serge and Gloria from Shivakali are two of the most kind hearted, authentic and giving people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Their knowledge is extensive and includes so much more than asana practice. My own understanding of the history and philosophy of Yoga grew exponentially under their instruction. The curriculum included many aspects of yoga beyond the poses on the mat. In addition to growing more confident in myself as a practioner of yoga, I grew more confident in my ability to go out and teach yoga. The caring, safe and happy atmosphere promoted much joy and self reflection."

    "Additionally, the food was out of this world! Three meals a day, everyday were just incredible. "

    "I would say that Shivakali offers so much more than Yoga teacher training instruction; they offer how to be a better, happier human instruction. I would recommend them to anyone. Mahalo,"

    "I would rate the whole experience a 10. The location and accommodations were perfect. The structure of the days were very well set up. I never felt overwhelmed with the structure or classes. I was always excited to go to class. The amount of knowledge and everything I learned was more than I could have asked for or imagined. The teachers were phenomenal. The plant based meals were icing on the cake. It was life changing."
