Iyengar


This class is taught by:

Kathy Koenigsberg

Kathy was 40 when scoliosis and age prompted her to seek out Yoga as a way to move beyond pain and to develop more freedom of movement. She was immediately drawn to the precision and eloquence of Iyengar yoga. In 2010, she passed the rigorous certification process to become an Iyengar certified teacher, and she can confidently say, after 17 years of practice, that she is more flexible in both mind and body.

 

As an instructor at the suburban extension of Midtown’s Stillwater Yoga, Kathy long made Iyengar yoga available to Dunwoody residents. She continues her studies with Senior Iyengar teachers in classes and workshops across the country, and she is honored to share what she learns with her students now at Infinity.

 

Kathy brings a lighthearted manner, precise instruction, and meaningful sequencing to each class. She strives to make her classes challenging and accessible to all ages and abilities, and her attention to every individual makes her classes warm and inclusive.

 

“Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.” ― B.K.S. Iyengar

Jumin Chien

JuMin, hailing from Taiwan, began practicing yoga over twenty years ago when modern and westernized yoga had yet to truly permeate the yoga culture on the island. JuMin’s first teachers were teaching traditional style asanas infused with Chinese medical thought and theory.

 

Realizing that yoga created a rhythm and breathing that permeated her life, she began training to teach after four years of practice. After 6 years of training in Taiwan and India, she began to teach in 2003. She has continued training and has thus accumulated over 8000 hours of teaching experience. Her most prominent certifications include both ERYT 500-hour and YACEP Yoga Alliance certificates. She is currently studying Yoga for Scoliosis under the guidance of Elise Browning Miller. As well as Iynegar with Colleen Gallagher and Kathleen Pringle.

 

In teaching, JuMin emphasizes unification of mind and body, and strives to inspire the student's hearts. The fluidity of her classes allows students to move into deep breathing, thereby continuously circulating energy. Her depth of knowledge comes through in her chanting and cues. Jumin uses her stable and remarkable hand adjustments to support deeper body awareness, injury prevention and proper alignment. She has found that teaching helps improve her understanding of the human being in a unique and profound way. As an ambassador for easyoga in Asia since 2015, JuMin’s travels allow her to bridge the future of yoga from Asia and the US, conveying diverse fields of knowledge and styles for her student.

 
Iyengar yoga focuses on one pose at a time, providing detailed instruction on alignment. Additionally, students will learn how to use props to effectively modify poses for injuries or limitations. Classroom is not heated.
 
Monday's class is appropriate for all levels – beginners to intermediate, while Thursday evening's class is geared toward more advanced postures and asana; experience is expected!
