Iris Cohen discovered yoga 17 years ago when a friend recommended it as an antidote to mothering three boys and a career in deadline magazine journalism. She opened Westchester-based Be True Yoga in 2010 and now continues her mission for sustainable wellness. She leads classes in Westchester and New York City, retreats in the Hamptons, Miami and Tulum, workshops for students and teachers as well as the Be True Cleanse, a nutrition and yoga program created with functional medicine expert, Dr. Frank Lipman. Her alignment-based instruction is thoughtful, nourishing and playful. She infuses her teaching with her love of story, meditation and music.
