While I was in New York for a stretch, I studied yoga with Norma Colón. She is an accomplished Level II Iyengar teacher — strangely difficult to come by on the upper east side of Manhattan — and she’s also one of the kindest, most patient people I’ve ever met, which makes her ideal for working with people with back pain. She’s also tireless; no part of my body escaped her eagle eye. She’ll help you get where you need to go, by pushing you just hard enough.
If you're in New York City, give Norma a call.
