Since 2000, The Institute of Interdisciplinary Yoga Studies (IIYS) has offered a liberal arts education program that includes the study of many yogic traditions, not holding one style over another. Our purpose is to empower those who want to learn, study and maybe even teach yoga at many levels. We support education learning opportunities at local studios who desire our support. We believe the more opportunities that a community creates to learn, the more we raise the awareness of everyone.

The 200 Hour program is offered in weekend modules in the Kansas City area and the immersion is offered periodically outside the US.

She offers classes throughout the Kansas City Area and the modules are offered monthly at the Muchnic Art Gallery, 704 North 4th Street, Atchison, Kansas 66002.
