Sit with Intention Pinecrest is co-taught by Stefan Ravalli and Sabina Padilla
Stefan is a Vedic meditation teacher and writer. After recovering from a life of travel, he took his enthusiasm for food and beverage into holistic geekery and a love of tea and its Daoist spiritual tradition. Later he went to study meditation in India under Vedic master Thom Knoles and then the Daoist tea tradition “Cha Dao” under various tea monks around the world. His work is colored by his background in psychology, film theory, gastronomy and other independent studies. He fuses these different modalities into a teaching practice that reminds us of our capacity to live full, practical and powerful lives.
Sabina spreads her broad palette of holistic tools through her meditation courses, tea ceremonies and Ayurvedic workshops. She has cultivated a uniquely thorough approach to wellness coaching by immersing herself in the Ayurvedic mecca of New Mexico, the centers of Vedic wisdom in Southern India and the spiritual art of tea service in Northern Taiwan and China. She also studied under North America’s foremost experts in Ayurvedic Yoga and Ayurvedic Nutritionist. The core of Sabina’s teachings is the cultivation of self-sufficiency. True natural healing is simply the reminder of everyone’s capacity to do it themselves. Sabina’s art is in understanding individuals and guiding them to discovery of their own inner potential.
