Marie Johnson
I practiced medicine for twenty years but I stopped following the deaths of two of my children in 2008. A friend brought Iyengar Yoga to me in that difficult time and I am eternally grateful for it. The healing powers of Yoga are immeasurable—what it offers to the body and most importantly to the mind. I am thankful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned with others. I hope to build a teaching practice centered on helping others live through bereavement.
