She was immediately drawn to the intelligence of the method, as well as its clarity, precision and layer upon layer of possibility for self-exploration and transformation.Judi lives in northern Westchester, NY with her husband and puppy, Peaches. In addition to the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York, she teaches workshops, group classes and privately.  She currently serves as Vice President of the Board of Directors of the Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York and is the Chair of its Governance Committee.Judi is dedicated to the principle that yoga should be accessible to and safe for ?every body.? She describes her teaching style as clear, dynamic, challenging and joyful. She strives to live and teach the principles expressed in Sutra 1.33 of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, as translated by B.K.S. Iyengar: ?Through cultivation of friendliness, compassion, joy and indifference to pleasure and pain, virtue and vice respectively, the consciousness becomes favorably disposed, serene and benevolent.?
