Ian Szydlowski Alvarez

Biography:
In Spanish there is beautiful refrain, "Se hace el camino al andar," or "one makes the path by walking." In this way I hope to inspire and serve others by offering seekers an integrated practice and experience of Yoga as I have practiced and understood it from my teachers. Yoga practice not only as an instrument towards liberation-- but as liberation itself - as taught in the tradition of Jivamukti. A tool to help us learn to be more receptive in order to nourish our highest potential - Yoga transforms the physical body and the internal layers of consciousness to shake up our karma and break us into the magic of now-ness. As a teacher I have interests in yoga philosophy, alignment in Asanas and many of the foundational elements regarding the method of Vinyasa by linking breath and movement. I am daily inspired by the contributions of Jivamukti's Sharon & David and this Jivamukti method, along with Sri Pattabhi Jois, Krishnamacarya, BKS Iyengar, also greatly to my Gita teacher Joshua Greene - Yogeswari, and my mentor Rima Rabbath for her unconditional love and inspiration.
