Mary & Eddy direct the BKS Iyengar Yoga Center of San Diego located in Ocean Beach. They are senior Iyengar Teachers Certified at the Advanced Level. They have studied with the Iyengars 18 times and spent a year from 2003-2004 and another half year in 2009 studying in Pune, India with the Iyengars. They adhere strictly to BKS Iyengar's methodology and continue their education by returning to India each year.
The BKS Iyengar Yoga Center is the first of its kind in Southern California (est. 1979). They conduct teacher trainings, workshops, and yoga vacations nationally and internationally. They have been instrumental in starting yoga programs in corporations through their yoga demonstrations and by providing instructors from their Teacher Training Course. They enjoy the challenge of teaching in diverse communities and are committed to sharing the intricacies and joys of yoga with all.
Mary and Eddy acknowledge the governing influence of BKS Iyengar on their practice and teaching. They are grateful to him for his unending efforts to uplift the lives of all those who come in contact with him, and for always being the superlative example of a life skillfully lived.
