Ingrid Yang, MD, JD, E-RYT-500, C-IAYT has been teaching yoga since 1999 and is a physician specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Her expert grasp of anatomy and human physiology bring a unique, thoughtful and joyful experience to the practice of yoga. Ingrid leads classes, trainings, and workshops all over the United States, Australia, Europe and Asia. She is certified with OM Yoga Center and Jivamukti Yoga, both in New York City. Ingrid is also a certified yoga therapist under the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and a Reiki master of the Usui tradition.
Ingrid's classes are upbeat and energetic, incorporating a vigorous vinyasa flow with dharma teaching and a strong understanding of human physiology. She seeks to offer each student a deep awareness of his/her personal capabilities and body, respecting its limits with compassion and ahimsa. With a strong emphasis on alignment, Ingrid's background in Iyengar brings a thoughtfulness to her teaching, yet she seeks to maintain a lightness and humor in class that encourages a wakefulness in daily life. She believes in listening to our own bodies' wisdom, while freeing its energy with the fluidity of Vinyasa flow movement. Ingrid has personally witnessed the healing powers of yoga in herself and her students, and she considers herself lucky to share the gift of yoga with others.
