Instructors

Ira Schneider
Ira
Ira started to practise yoga consciously in 2007. He says consciously because, after getting his 200-hour certification, he realized there were many parts of yoga besides the physical practice. These other paths of yoga (pranayama, meditation, and positive thought), he had already been practising from the time he was a little boy. This inward feeling of something larger than himself was always present through his years as an entrepreneur, teacher, consultant, and individual being.
