Lucienne was introduced to Iyengar Yoga in 1984 while studying modern dance in her native Amsterdam. She moved to NYC and completed the Iyengar teacher training in 2006. Lucienne is certified at the Intermediate Senior I level and joined the faculty of The Iyengar Yoga Institute of NYC in 2010. She owns Studio Spine where she practices Hellerwork. Currently she is enjoying a variety of exchanges within the greater international yoga community: she teaches workshops in Italy, Holland, Scotland, Lithuania, Hong Kong, Costa Rica as well as in NYC and its environs. Lucienne has an avid interest in the body and how it functions: as a tool for artistic expression in dance, as a tool for healing through bodywork, and as a tool to sharpen the mind as a yoga practitioner. “By exploring and defining the outer form, we find the layered composition of the form which gradually transforms our inner perceptions and ultimately ourselves.” She is forever indebted to Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar and the generosity of her many teachers.
