Tiffany Bailey

RYT 500

The more you know, the more you know you don’t know.  Never more true than with yoga after 30 years of practice and study. Tiffany began in BKS Iyengar’s hatha yoga system and later studied vinyasa, anusara, vini, tantra, shadow, ashtanga and most recently yoga nidra. She enjoys sharing yoga with beginners to advanced practitioners- because no matter where a person is on the path, bringing the mind and body together, even briefly, always helps.
