Kevin Gardiner, a native New Yorker, began studying yoga in 1970 and has been teaching Iyengar Yoga since 1982. A graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Kevin was a professional actor, director and teacher for 15 years.
He has studied many times and for extended periods in Pune with the Iyengar family, and was a co-founder of the Iyengar Institute of Greater New York, serving on its Executive Committee and in various leadership roles from its inception. In 2009 Kevin was honoured to receive his Intermediate Senior I Teacher’s Certificate from Guruji himself.
Over the years Kevin has travelled extensively, teaching in North and South America, as well as many workshops in his ancestral home of Ireland. Kevin also had his own yoga studio in Manhattan until December 2006. He then relocated to Budapest where, with his wife Erika, he now teaches at their own studio, the Amrita Yoga Centre.
His teaching is highly detailed and textured, seamlessly incorporating many components of yoga philosophy and the sutras, while continuously challenging students to gain greater sensitivity and awareness in each asana. He has a tremendous practical understanding of the living anatomy of the human body, and a light-hearted and off-beat sense of humour.
