ACADEMY OBJECTIVE – Our work here at the Academy is based on the Iyengar system, although we go beyond that approach by focusing on the needs of each individual student who is in class. We offer two decades of experience, teacher training, and a variety of classes and private sessions that are intended to serve the needs of each student. Each type of class outlined below focuses on individual needs and inspires increased flexibility and confidence in movement. Our goal is stillness, balance, and peace.
