Ruth came to yoga in 1998. Its immediate impact was profound & quickly led to a sincere and dedicated practice. She studied in the Iyengar tradition for over 10 years and is a qualified Iyengar teacher. Between 2005 and 2010 she travelled annually to her Iyengar teachers, Rajiv and Swati Chanchani at the beautiful foothills of the Himalayas, spending extended periods of study, exploration and immersion in all aspects of the subject there. She assisted Rajiv in the medical and local classes and has also studied at the Iyengar Institute in Pune, India.
In 2008 Ruth was introduced to the practice of Shadow Yoga and from 2010 studied Nrtta Sadhana & Shadow yoga directly with Shandor Remete and Emma Balnaves.
