more colleagues

There is not only one way to teach yoga for athletes. I simply teach yoga, presented in ways that make it accessible to athletes. Here are my colleagues. Those denoted “assistants” have assisted me in workshops, in addition to studying with me; “students” have taken a weekend or weeklong intensive with me.
