This class is taught by:

Michael Taylor

J. Michael Taylor is a certified Iyengar teacher and has practiced yoga since 1987. Having played sports all his life, yoga helped him develop flexibility and heal his injuries. He is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable yoga teachers in the western suburbs. He started apprenticing with Gabriel Halpern at Yoga Circle, Chicago in 1989 and began teaching soon after. He has studied for many years with Senior Iyengar teachers, Lois Steinberg and Laurie Blakeney. His teaching places a strong emphasis on alignment and the use of props to facilitate learning. Michael’s great sense of humor keeps his students laughing. Yoga gives him the energy to teach photography at College of DuPage and play music, dance, and enjoy life to the fullest.

Maria Luisa Basualdo

Maria Luisa's teaching style draws both from the different yoga methodologies she has studied and also from her background as a modern dancer. After a severe injury, she decided to follow the path of yoga, which ultimately drew her to the Iyengar Yoga method. Her classes range from vigorous to restorative, and she enjoys working with all levels. Certified in the Iyengar yoga method in 2000, she has studied for more than a decade with senior Iyengar teachers such as: Marina Chaselon, Ramanand Patel, Lois Steinberg, Gabriel Halpern, John Schumacher, Patricia Walden, Manuso Manos, and the Iyengars themselves in Pune, India. She has also studied Ashtanga Yoga with Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India, Indra Devi-style yoga in Buenos Aires and Jivamukti yoga in NYC.
Taught by a certified Iyengar teacher. Iyengar emphasizes alignment and technique within an intelligently sequenced class. Props are used to facilitate learning and provide support for less flexible students. This mindful approach is highly recommended for for those who want to deepen their understanding of alignment in asana, as well as those with back issues and other muscular or skeletal imbalances. The level 2-3 class is for experienced yoga students and includes inversions such as headstand and shoulderstand.
