I am grateful for what the practice of yoga has given me in terms of living a more integrated life. I am deeply committed to sharing and passing on the teachings of yoga in the Iyengar tradition. I find that as I guide the students in front of me, I am also learning from them.

Audubon Yoga Studio opened in the Fall of 2000. Classes at the studio are based on the teachings of BKS Iyengar, one of the most influential and respected yogis of our time. Iyengar yoga emphasizes the alignment of the body and building strength and flexibility through precise and mindful work in the asanas (postures).

With the use of props, this is a safe yet challenging method of yoga, helping to provide balance and stability of our physical and mental bodies. With the union of body and mind we begin the journey of Self-discovery.
