About the Teachers

JUSTIN HEROLD has been practicing yoga since 1979. He first started with the intention of reducing or overcoming running related injuries received during his long distance running or cross-country training. He ran to maintain good health but slowly discovered that the Yoga practice provided the most complete and safest system for keeping healthy. He finally traded his running shoes in for a Yoga training mat. He took a two-year intensive teacher training program, received his Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training Certification, and began teaching Yoga at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles, (IYILA) in 1989. He served as a staff instructor at IYILA from 1989 to 1992. From June of 1992 he has worked as an independent Yoga in Bangkok. He opened the IYENGAR YOGA STUDIO of Bangkok in October of 1999 and has been conducting classes there since. He travels to India on a regular basis to continue his studies with the Iyengars; B.K.S., Geeta and Prashant.
