Iris Waitt - Instructor
Iris Waitt (Abhayā), RYT200 has been practicing yoga on and off for most of her life. When she was very small the joy of the practice came mostly from picturing how a certain pose name compared to the animal that it was named after. Luckily, she has since learned to suppress the giggles that came with this exercise. As her practice progressed, yoga became a much-needed form of stress relief and one of the few “indoorsy” physical activities that kept her sane during the long, slushy winters while at college in Boston.
It has only been since coming to Forever Yoga in early 2017 that yoga has taken on a deeper, all-encompassing meaning for her. Her practice as a student is now deeply grounded in the desire to cultivate contentment & compassion balanced with discipline and aims to build a greater appreciation for, and awareness of, the gifts that life offers her. As a new teacher (recently graduated from Forever Yoga’s 200-Hour Teacher Training Program) she seeks to offer classes that help others on their own journeys towards self-discovery and a deeper connection to the beautiful world around us. She is grateful to have the opportunity to walk this path along with her students and hopes to bring a sense of the broader benefits of yoga to each student that she works with.
