I have taught in the US, Europe and Asia since 1986. I approach yoga as something everyone can practice. I find it a subtle art to sequence a class in a way that is beneficial to a diverse group.
I also run a wellness and Arts foundation for young people, in the name of my daughter, (www.annalyttonfoundaiton.org) and enjoy exposing students to these tools at an early age. It is a way to give back from all that has been given to me.
I am excited to offer Iyengar style classes this summer at One Ocean. Iyengar is the core of my inspiration and training and I am happy to have this opportunity to share it.
As it says in sutra 1.23 of Patanjali Sutras: Ishvara Pranidhana is a dedication, to offer the fruits of ones practice over to something greater than ourselves, to the benefit of all beings
May all beings be free from suffering, may they be peaceful, happy, and free.
