Polly Green - About Me - Yoga

Polly Green - Yoga

Polly began her teaching career as a ski instructor and whitewater kayak instructor in 1991.

She competed on the international whitewater kayak circuit for ten years and instructed kayaking at the top schools in the USA and New Zealand.

Her yoga journey began 12 years ago when she began learning with an Iyengar teacher.

In 2007 she found Ashtanga yoga and founded her production company Flair Films. Immediately she knew her yoga goal was to complete the primary series proficiently and go practice in Mysore, India.

She went to Mysore, India in 2012, and practiced at KPJYI with Sharath Jois for 3 months. Going to Mysore was a life changing experience, and she knew had to return to India as soon as possible.

She went back to India in June 2013 for 6 months, but this time to the North. She spent most of her time in Ladakh, and in Rishikesh. While in Rishikesh she practiced with yogi Kamal Singh at Tattva Yoga Shala and completed his 200- hour Ashtanga yoga teacher training in November 2013. She stayed on in Rishikesh for 2 weeks after the training and taught led Ashtanga classes at Tattva Yoga Shala.

She maintains a 6- day a week Mysore style Ashtanga practice and yoga has become the main focus of her life.
