Yoon  Cho


First introduced to Iyengar Yoga by chance more than 20 years ago, Yoon has never looked back. It has been a true gift to learn, practice and teach and belong to a community of wonderful beings. As a graduate of the 500-Hour Teacher Training program of the Institute of Iyengar Yoga of San Francisco, Yoon began teaching in 2013 and was certified as an instructor by the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the U.S. (IYNAUS) in 2015. Yoon’s classes are based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar, who was one of the pioneers who introduced modern yoga to the West. As he fervently believed that the benefits of yoga are available to all regardless of age, gender and physical ability, a certified teacher in the Iyengar Yoga system must meet the strict standards regarding detailed instruction, correction and focus on proper alignment of the body and mind (and ultimately the spirit.). The yoga poses (asanas) commonly understood as “yoga” are simply one aspect in the rich and complex philosophical system that originated in ancient India. Therefore, Yoon considers it her responsibility to share the intellectual underpinnings of yoga as well as bringing the latest medical research to bear upon her practice and teaching. Born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, Yoon immigrated with her family to New York City. For her education, she studied Classics and Near Eastern Studies at Cornell University and received her Master of Philosophy in Ancient Greek History from Lincoln College, Oxford University. In addition to her teaching of yoga, mindfulness and holistic wellness, she works as program manager of People & Culture at a tech company in the SF Bay Area.
