Our History: dhyana Center was created in 1995, by DeAnna Batdorff after returning from the Bihar School of Yoga, in India. DeAnna studied Ayurveda with her teacher Dr. Lad. at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico. There she met her life partner Scott Jenkins and just 4 months later the dhyana Center was born. Scott & DeAnna’s love has grown alongside the dhyana Center. The whole facility is designed and built by Scott & DeAnna’s creativity, humor, honesty, patience, sweat, love and sometimes tears.
