Maggie Reagh, BA in Classical Philosophy, MA in Teaching, E-RYT began studying Yoga at age 3 with TV’s, Karen Zebroff. She resumed her practice of Yoga in her twenties after a pre-professional career in Modern dance came to an abrupt end due to lower back and knee pain. Pattabhi Jois’ Astanga Vinyasa practice brought her to Mysore, India in 2000 to study asana, pranayama and philosophy with BNS Iyengar at the Parakala Mutt where Krishnamacharya did his Vedic studies in the early 20th century. Searching for the source of Krishnamacharya’s work and looking for deeper healing from chronic anxiety and depression brought her to Chennai, India in 2001 to study at theKrishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, India. With T.K.V. Desikachar’s blessings at his father’s shrine, she started teaching Yoga in 2002 in Vancouver, Canada at Capilano University, where she is also a faculty member. She went on to study with Gary and Mirka Kraftsow at theAmerican Viniyoga Institute on Maui, Hawaii to learn how this work has been adapted for Westerners in group situations. Maggie continues her studies in Yoga Therapy, Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Vedic chanting, and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras with her teachers D.V. Sridhar, Viji Vasu, and Radha Sridhar in Chennai at Yoga Raksanam. In addition to her Yoga studies, Maggie also studies Ayurvedic medicine at Pathway with Dr. B. Ganesh of Chennai, India. She is fascinated with this sister science of Yoga, and how it can be used to promote healing as it relates to Yoga therapy. As she continues to explore the different aspects of Krishnamacharya’s teachings through his closest students, she is presently studying BKS Iyengar’s approach to Yoga Therapy with Lindsay Whalen, E-RYT 500 in Vancouver. Maggie and Lindsay are starting an RYT 200 Yoga Therapy Teacher Training Program in Fall, 2009 with some of Vancouver’s top Yoga Teacher Trainers including Jeffrey Armstrong .
