Somah was an International Professional Figure Skater, (Tracy Shulman) competing and performing around the world. She then coached for 20+ years. Working with mind/body was always a passion. After stepping into a yoga class and feeling the benefits of the mental focus, she then hired different yoga teachers to work with her elite skaters as she continued to notice the benefits of Yoga in her own body. As her perspective of what was important in life began to shift, she left the skating world in 2007 and dove deeply into her yoga awareness by cultivating an intentional practice.

In 2011 she met Anand Mehrotra and went to Rishikesh, India for a month. She was given the rare opportunity to study privately, one on one with him for her first 200hr certification.

Continuing her yogic education in the years to come by expanding into Ayurvedic medicine. “The Science of Life”. This path took her deep into the Himalayans months at a time, learning about rare herbs and visiting essential oil distilleries. Being present in the Living of Yoga awoke a wise teacher that had long been asleep.

Continuing her studies with Anand, riding on a Motorcycle journey with him and further travels through out the world as an importer of Organic & Wildcrafted Essential oils is how she began Savitur Botanicals. She supports only high conscious small family farms where farming is an ecological belief, not an economical choice. I am a certified Yoga Alliance teacher: E-200 RYT/ 500 RYT and a Master Aromatherapist. Somah is also in the first group of teachers to be certified through Sattva as “Master Sattva Teachers”.

Currently, living in Castle Rock, Colorado, she is the creator and founder of AffirmativeYoga! and Savitur botanicals. Visit her website for more info and a current teaching schedule: or to access ordering or information on the wisdom of high quality Essential oils visit
