Yoon: I took my very first yoga class 15 years ago, which happened to be taught by an Iyengar Yoga teacher, and never looked back. In 2014, I have completed the 500-Hour Teacher Training program at the Institute of Iyengar Yoga of San Francisco and am working toward full certification in 2015.
My classes are based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar, who is widely regarded as the father of modern yoga in the West. Our system’s driving force is Mr. Iyengar’s belief that benefits of yoga are available to all regardless of age, gender and physical ability. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iyengar_Yoga) He invented and freely shared props in part to help his students in yoga poses. We also insist upon detailed instruction, correction and focus on proper alignment of the body, mind and the spirit.
Yoga poses (Asanas) that most people think of as yoga are simply one element in the elegantly rich and complex philosophical system that originated in ancient India. My passion is to share my knowledge in this subject with my students as well as work together to improve their physical and emotional well-being.
Yoon: I am a lifelong student of history and civilizations and hold a double B.A. in Classics and Near Eastern Studies from Cornell University and a Master of Philosophy in Ancient Greek History from Lincoln College, Oxford University. When not thinking, talking, dreaming or practicing yoga, I am out riding horses or Irish set dancing.
