Holly Walck Kostura has been a student of Yoga since 1997 and teaching since 2002. In 2004, she founded The Iyengar Center of the Lehigh Valley, the first Iyengar Yoga studio in Northeastern Pennsylvania, which continues to support a growing community of devoted practitioners. She currently holds a Junior Intermediate III teaching certificate.
Holly studies regularly with her mentors, Patricia Walden of Cambridge, MA and Joan White of Philadelphia, PA. She is currently assisting at the BKS Iyengar Yoga School of Central Philadelphia in the Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training Program.
Holly travels to Pune, India to study with the Iyengar family at the renowned Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute and has studied directly with BKS Iyengar and Geeta Iyengar in the USA, Canada and China.
Her deep dedication to her own practice inspires and informs her teaching, which is clear, compassionate and steeped in philosophy. Her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and special interest in anatomy and physiology give her the unique ability to see her students from a place of wholeness.
For Holly, Yoga is a path of transformation and absolute freedom that has far-reaching effects beyond the limits of the physical body. It is her intention to share with her students how Yoga reveals the infinite source of health and joy within.
Fixed in Yoga, perform your duty
having abadonded attachment to the fruits of your labor
and becoming indifferent to success or failure.
This eveness of mind is Yoga (Bhagavad Gita, Chpt. II, v. 48).
