Tori Milner began her studies of Iyengar Yoga in 1996 and began teaching in 2001. She has taken five extended trips to study with the Iyengar’s in Pune. A student of the late Mary Dunn, Tori maintains Mary as an inspiration and continues her studies with senior teachers in the method.
A former account executive, graduate of Sweet Briar College, mother of twins and lover of animals, Tori also serves IYAGNY as the faculties Liaison and is part of teacher training and continuing education programs.
In her enthusiastic teaching and intelligent sequencing, she strives to be clear, challenging, and insightful, motivating students to understand how to go beyond their perceived limitations. She enjoys helping students make progress and connect to themselves through the practice and to experience the joy that comes with that.
“One thing I remember most about being a beginner,” she says, “is that in addition to the the physical challenge, which I really enjoyed, I felt profound relief mentally and emotionally after every class, no matter what we did.” She attempts to share with others how to bring about that transformation for themselves.
