I am Aaron. 

I have extensive training in various enlightenment traditions and energy systems, most notably Mahayana Buddhism, Tantric Yoga, Taoism and South American Shamanism. I combine this knowledge with a lifetime as a wordsmith, philosopher, theater-maker and nature-enthusiast to help every sister and brother I collaborate with discover her/his own path.

Though my medicine bag is full of various cures for various ailments, my purpose is always the same. To direct you back inward to the Self--that birthplace and resting place of all truth, wisdom and love.

Here are some of the ways we will do that:

  • meditation guidance to bring clarity and insight to the mind

  • physical exercises to generate greater stability and ease

  • energy practices to cleanse and recalibrate your system

  • breath + voice work to restore emotional balance

  • ceremony to harmonize your rhythms with Mother Nature's

  • frank + relevant discussion to elucidate your unique path, your particular obstacles and your phenomenal strengths

Aaron brings the magic. She's 100% invested in pursuing truth, not just in an airy-fairy way, but in a studied, meticulous way. And she has her finger on the magic of the unseen worlds... and will help point you there.

Ok, so I’m happily skeptical and am not really an easy “joiner” but, without a doubt, completely and fully and for several years now, Aaron has been my teacher and a key spiritual guide.  She’s my homegirl along with Pema and Thich Nhat Hahn and Joseph Campbell and sages I hold dear.  

What you get with Aaron is inspired, non judgemental, unstuffy, focused and flexible, smart as a whip guidance on your spiritual journey. She is studied and informed and puts in work. She’s deeply kind, funny and humble, dedicated and modern, relatable, transparent and deeply trustworthy.

In working with Aaron I’ve found liberation from sticky depression, some deeply grooved patterns of thinking, and unhelpful habits.  I’ve become more serious in my practice and less serious in my personal life. I’m easier, I feel more humble and full of wonder. I’m happier. I’m grateful and connected.  I’m more resourceful and resilient, less flappable. I have tools to see myself in others and others in myself.

For anyone who is even thinking of starting to meditate, you must study with Aaron. I am a 60 year old who has always been reluctant to try meditation but I must say, now I am hooked. Aaron communicates in easy understandable inspirational language, and her online course made the practice very accessible for me. Every week we got a beautifully guided meditation led by Aaron, followed by thoughts and tools to build our meditation practice.

Since I started, I have been meditating twenty minutes daily. I am feeling less anxious and calmer. I am learning to handle stress more effectively using my breathing techniques and visualizations I’ve learned from her. Aaron is filled with love and exudes that with all who study with her. I am so grateful to Aaron for introducing me to meditation.

Aaron stands out among a sea of other yoga instructors.  While she makes room for all skill levels (I'm a beginner), she manages to provide opportunities for challenge and growth in a refreshingly non-judgmental environment. I leave the studio feeling stronger, wiser, and more capable than when I entered.  Her music choices are stellar--veering towards indie, her instruction is nuanced yet concrete, and her gentle adjustments have transformed my approach.  Aaron is clearly a passionate and true practitioner, and her technical and spiritual knowledge is evident.  She does not phone it in, allowing the classes to evolve in tone and energy, regularly introducing new music, poses and themes...yet somehow invariably providing exactly what I need in that moment. Her classes are a gift.

What is wonderful about Aaron's classes, other than everything, is her pacing and the sequences of the poses. Always, I come away having done more than I thought I could. At the same time I am never exhausted, only energized and invigorated. Week by week, I feel stronger and more confident. Her talks are simple, clear, easy to listen to and good to think about. One has a feeling of focus, seriousness, even sacredness without pomposity.

What is one of the only things that could make me extend my super long day to go to a yoga class? Aaron Dias is my answer. Her dynamic, deeply thoughtful and creative approach to the art of teaching keeps me coming back week after week. Under her supportive guidance, you will tap into deeper places of your personal practice. Aaron has a special gift for distilling the ancient texts down to their absolute essence, ready for each one of her students to bring a piece of the wisdom off of their mat and out into the rest of their daily lives. Thank you Aaron for showing me each week what true dedication and compassion can look like!
