Greta is the co-owner of Iyengar Yoga Asheville. She may be the youngest teacher at the studio, but this is no reflection on her yoga experience. With 18 years of practice under her belt, Greta has studied with some of the most senior Iyengar yoga teachers in the world. When she met her first Iyengar yoga teacher, Kofi Busia, in her early 20s, she knew she had stumbled upon something truly special. Greta attended yoga teacher training at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco (IYISF), and has made two trips to the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India to study with the Iyengar family. Greta has spent thousands of hours in weekly classes, trainings and intensives with senior teachers including Manouso Manos, Kofi Busia, and Ramanand Patel. In addition to teaching yoga to adults, Greta has taught yoga extensively to youth, and created and taught a yoga program for 5th-8th graders at a K-8 school in San Francisco.
