About Master Yoga Teacher Eddie Modestini:
Eddie has been doing yoga since July of 1983. His first teacher was a woman from the San Francisco bay area named Gayna Uransky. Realizing that he had found his path, he lost no time in jumping in with both feet.
His first introduction to yoga was Iyengar Yoga and he became a certified teacher in a short time. He was part of the first batch of teachers certified on the East Coast. Many of those in his group have gone on to become senior Iyengar teachers. At the time it was very hard to get certified.
Today, Eddie Modestini is what is known as a teacher’s teacher. He has been a yogi since 1983 and has been teaching for that long as well. Eddie has been certified in Iyengar yoga and spent many years studying with Pattabhi Jois, receiving a blessing to teach Ashtanga yoga. He is well versed in both systems and has an amazing eye and holds the ability to read students’ bodies and is a master of yoga therapy. “Through the experience of watching yoga heal me, I know that it has the capacity to heal the masses.”
“The treasure is buried beneath your house. Tear down your house to reveal the treasure.” –Eddie Modestini
