Jolemy Bermudez
I was called to the practice of yoga to enhance my health and calm my mind. After my first experience with yoga I fell in love with the practice and the inner peace that resulted. Iyengar yoga invited me to deepen my practice and allowed me to explore all aspects of the practice. I love that Iyengar Yoga can offer so much knowledge of how and why each pose is taught and preformed and that every class and teacher can offer new gems of wisdom to help master the poses.

He became certified to teach the Iyengar method in 2013 and just recently spent 6 months in India studying with the Iyengar family and Rajiv and Swati Chanchani.
