Linda Munro was
first introduced to yoga in 1996 in Toronto, Canada with Ron Reid and Diane
Bruni. She had been in a car accident in
1995 and was in physical therapy when she became interested in yoga as a way to
compliment the therapy. Soon after she
realized that the yoga would be a life time practice. A practice of asana,
pranayama and meditation but also a practice of being truthful, a practice of
being kind, a practice of being fearless, peaceful and happy. She believes that
the practice of â€œyogaâ€ is continuous; the practice does not stop when you roll
up the yoga mat. The practice of yoga includes the way you live your life, the
way you relate to your family, friends, co-workers and to the strangers on the
street. This is the lifelong practice of developing yogic awareness.
In1997 she moved to New York City with her work in the fashion business while
continuing a daily ashtanga practice studying under Eddie Stern. The year 2000
brought her to Paris, France. After thirteen years in the world of fashion she
decided it was the time to move fully into the direction she had been moving
since her first yoga class. She felt a strong desire to strive to give to
others what her teachers have given to her; so she started teaching yoga in
2002 as her own study and practice continued.
She studied yogic scriptures and philosophy, having completed a 250 hour study program
of Patanjaliâ€™s Yoga Sutra, and a 120 hour course on the Bhagavad Gita under the
supervision of Georg Feuerstein. She was
one of his 10 mentoring students until he recently passed away. Linda is also a student of Sri O.P. Tiwari
and is able to teach kriyas and pranayama.
