Tina Freeland had been practicing Iyengar Yoga for over 20 years before she decided that she wanted to be a teacher. Like a lot of people, she started because she experienced back pain and continued because of the benefits, to her physical health and general well-being. The discovery of the wider philosophy of yoga is also a driving force behind Tina’s continuing education. As a teacher, she would like to reach out to and enable those people who have, for whatever reason, thought themselves out of place in a conventional yoga class setting. It’s often the heavier, stiffer, older, less able bodies, which are the ones most able to benefit from Iyengar yoga’s deliberate methodical instruction and use of props – enabling every body to experience the positive aspects of each asana.
