The asana is an enquiry: "Who am I?"
Throwing out the parts until only the Self is left.
The final pose is "I am.”
Holding these words from BKS Iyengar close to her heart, Sachiko has been practicing Iyengar Yoga since 2001, and has experienced the transformative and healing power of this method first hand. As a teacher, she strives to inspire students to use Yoga as a tool for self-discovery on and beyond the physical level. She is a dedicated student of Manouso Manos, taking and assisting his classes weekly. She also regularly studies with Brian Hogencamp. Sachiko graduated from a 3-year teacher training taught by Gloria Goldberg and Manouso Manos and holds an Intermediate Jr. 1 Certification. She has twice been to Pune, India, to study with the Iyengars, and has completed a 3-year Iyengar Yoga Therapeutics Program taught by Manouso Manos.
