“Pam Johnson is a Master Teacher, a teacher of teachers. She stands tall amongst the rare few of humble modern yoga experts carrying authentic teachings and upholding the integrity of yoga.
Free from any contradicting and confusing practices of commercial and branded yoga, Pam brings a refreshing acumen of yogic training. Schooled for over twenty years by one of Krishnamacharya’s longest standing disciple’s outside his family, Srivatsa Ramaswami and realized Himalayan Yoga adepts and vedic scholars, I feel safe that what I receive from Pam is nothing I’ll need to “unlearn” later.
Being a yoga teacher, and a student under a Himalayan Master myself, I am cautious and discrimminating about who I study with. Pam is a gem, a humble transmitter of the Himalayan Vinyasa Krama system and an artist at articulating the energetics, physical intelligence and depth of this system in an accessible way. I’ve had so many “ah-ha” moments studying with Pam. She just knows how to bring it all together without watering it down. Besides new discoveries in my own practice, I’ve learned so much from her to share with my students. Plus she knows all the nuances of the system and maintains it’s purity without convoluting anything. I have yet to find anyone like her!”Kara Weimer
VEDIC PRAYER OF A TEACHER
May earnest students from all directions come to me!
May earnest students with varied capabilities come to me!
May earnest students with exceptional capabilities come to me!
May earnest students with self-restraint come to me!
May earnest students with peace in heart come to me!
A Teacher’s prayer from Taittiriya Upanishad, Yajur Veda

“Pam’s teaching and her personal practice are one of the finest I’ve ever come across in my quest to study the art of yoga. I’ve never encountered an instructor with such passion and willingness to share their knowledge. Pam’s unmatched lineage and wisdom from over 20 years of experience makes her one of a kind in Houston. She is truly one of few who still teach from a classical perspective: asana (always in sanskrit), pranayama chanting and meditation. I can’t recommend her enough!”Michelle Bonich
