One-Line Bio

Sumukhi is a Heart-Centered Yoga Teacher.


Kristina Lanuza (Sumukhi) loves yoga. Yoga has given her the ability to fly while staying grounded on the earth. She teaches in Austin, Texas. Her teaching is inspired by the beautiful sound vibrations of Sanskrit - which she studies at Ananda Ashram in Monroe, New York.

She acknowledges Ananda Ashram founder, Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati as her Guru and primary teacher on yoga as a foundation for all aspects of life.

Kristina has completed multiple hatha yoga teacher trainings, including many hours studying Anusara, and has spent a lot of time with sages, saints and sinners. She is immersed in the practices of Yoga Vedanta, Ayurveda, Sanskrit and meditation. She is co-founder of Mudita Yoga Center in Kingston, NY -

Sumukhi has a Bachelor of Science in Biology from St. Edward's University. She continues to study the human mind, body and spirit extensively from the perspective of many different philosophies, religions and ultimately in her own being, and has over twelve years experience in advertising, marketing and public relations. And then there's music. Music does enlighten her spirit. And for the great gift of music, Nadam, the divine silence, and infinite song, she is forever grateful to her parents, especially her father and again, to her Guru, for bringing more of it out in her heart.

She teaches to help individuals live from their own unique Self and bliss.
