Prior to teaching yoga, Judi was a corporate attorney. After 15 years of living a very stress-filled life of practicing law while raising her two boys, Judi developed a chronic pain condition. A wise therapist suggested that she try yoga as a means to balance her life, reduce stress and decrease pain. Judi’s very first yoga experience was an Iyengar Yoga class – she was immediately drawn to the intelligence and accessibility of the method, as well as its clarity, precision and layers of possibility for self-exploration and transformation. After taking classes and practicing on her own for a few years, Judi began teaching, to share her passion for the life-changing possibilities that yoga offers (practicing yoga did relieve her stress and helped her manage and eventually lower her pain)!
