Safety in Yoga Practice
Learn about the most important safety considerations in yoga practice.
Sacro Iliac Joint
SI pain is one of the most common complaints among yoga practitioners.
Hi! I'm Libby.
My super power is making anatomy simple, fun, and relevant for yoga teachers.
When I graduated from yoga teacher training in 2005, I felt totally overwhelmed and confused by anatomy. The way it was presented during my training seemed completely disconnected from the yoga I was learning how to teach.
After traveling to India to study at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram and starting physical therapy school (physio for those outside the US) the pieces started to fall into place and I fell in love with learning about the human body.
Over the past decade, I've specialized in helping yoga teachers understand the most relevant aspects of anatomy - without getting overwhelmed in minutae. My approach blends up to date science with a commitment to the inner experience of yoga.
In 2018 I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. This helped me to see my entire experience with yoga in a new light and inspired me to write the book "Yoga for Bendy People', published in 2022.
When I'm not teaching or seeing PT clients, you can find me walking in the greenway near my house, snuggling my children, and eating all the chocolate.
