About the teacher:
Fiona Stang first journeyed to Mysore in 1999 where she met her teacher, Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois and his grandson, Sharath Rangaswamy.  Fiona continued to study with Guruji to receive his teachings of devotion, grace, faith, compassion, patience, and yoga.  In 2000, Fiona was authorized to teach by Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, and in July 2009, she was the first group of 40 students worldwide to receive Level 2 Authorization.  She is blessed by KPJAYI to teach the Primary and Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Yoga.  In 2006, Fiona met John Scott. His teachings and inquisitive nature have greatly influenced her understanding and teaching of Ashtanga Yoga.  Fiona is grateful for the community of teachers at AYV that support her practice and keep her teachings fresh and innovative.  Without Guruji, this would not be possible.  Thank you Guruji.
