Luci Yamamoto

Luci discovered Iyengar yoga in Berkeley in the late 1990s. After a decade of study, she began teaching in Vancouver. She completed her Intermediate Junior II certification in 2017. Her training teacher is Louie Ettling. In August 2014, she traveled to Pune to study with the Iyengar family. Her first teachers, Donald Moyer, Mary Lou Weprin, and Sandy Blaine, continue to influence her practice.

A contemplative, disciplined student, Luci’s teaching style is articulate and rigorous. She encourages students to challenge themselves and to appreciate the precision and depth of Iyengar yoga. Originally from Hawaii, Luci is a professional writer, editor, and Lonely Planet author.

Her blog, Yoga Spy, discusses yoga culture and other fascinations of life.
