Acharya Rudra (Peter Leopold)

Rudra Peter Small

I have a BA in religious studies from UC Berkeley, certifications in yoga, medical chi gong, and various bodywork and healing modalities. I have lived for four years in an urban ashram studying and practicing with my teacher Swami Khecaranatha and have spent extended time in meditation retreat.

In 2011 I was initiated into the teacher-training program by Swami Khecaranatha, and was formally initiated as an acharya in the Rudrananda Pantha, in January, 2017, participating in an all-day ceremony conducted in Ganeshpuri, India.

I am currently pursuing a Doctorate in Chiropractic. In my free time I enjoy training Muai Thai, playing the banjo, and soaking in hot springs.
