Rebecca Wallace: It was January 2008, the start of a new year, a move into a new house and a New Year’s resolution that lead me to Iyengar Yoga. Being an owner of a runner store meant logging plenty of miles with customer, but short on time for other forms of “exercise”. I knew I needed to stretch more, but never found the time to do it on my own. I committed to attend a beginners’ yoga class at a nearby Iyengar studio as a way to fulfill my resolution. I’ve always gravitated to activities involving attention to detail and technique. Needless to say I found my “home” with Iyengar Yoga.

The move to Colorado Springs in 2014 afforded me the opportunity to attend class more regularly and study with senior Iyengar teachers giving workshops nearby. My teachers and mentor serve as constant inspiration and a sources of information. I furthered my practice and commitment by taking the Iyengar approved teacher training for 2 years and recently assessed and passed the Intro I & II certification exam. I look forward to helping others discover the benefits of yoga.
