Honoring Lineage

Iyengar Yoga

Morgan was introduced to Iyengar Yoga while attending Art School in Chicago in 2005 and has been a devoted student ever since. She enjoys the benefits of long holds buoyed up by props and the therapeutic nature of B.K.S Iyengar and his family's teachings. Morgan continues her studies in Iyengar Inspired Yoga with Tias and Surya Little. 


Morgan has been a student of Daoyin since 2010 and has studied with Mike Ninomiya, Yoshi Nakano, Tias and Surya Little, and most recently Mimi Kuo Deemer. The teachings of the Dao have become central to Aarunya Yoga School's pedagogy as they teach an ecological approach to practice.


Morgan studies and practices Zen Buddhism as a lay person with the order of interbeing as pioneered by the venerable Thich Nhat Hanh. Her dharma name is "Pure Aspiration of the Heart" and her mentor is Gurupriya Beth Sanchez. The monastics at Plum Village have not only deeply influenced Morgan's spiritual life, but also her artistic practice


Morgan has been a multiform classical and contemporary trained dancer since the age of three and a professional contemporary dance teacher and choreographer since 2004. She has devoted her life thus far to researching and teaching movement. It is her greatest love and passion.
