My teacher is Tony Briggs, who has been teaching for more than 30 years. He was part of the wave of the first generation of yoga teachers in the United States after Iyengar visited the Bay Area in 1976. His main teachers were Judith Hanson Lasater and Manouso Manos, and some of his other teachers included Ramanand Patel, Dona Holleman and of course Mr. Iyengar. I’m humbled by and am in awe of this teaching lineage, and strive to bring some of what I am constantly learning from Tony to the open-minded, warm-hearted students of Yoga Passion. I try to teach yoga that is grounding, stabilizing, creates space inside the body and encourages awareness in both body and mind.
