The name Dancing Foot Yoga comes from the Shiva Nataraj, a famous image that commemorates the Lord Shiva’s dance of creation and being. The Nataraj, or Lord of the Dance, symbolizes the power within each person and the energy that dances within all of us. The cosmic dancer’s left foot, the Dancing Foot, is lifted in celebration gesturing to all to come and find the joy within.

Robin Hertlein Candrea is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher, presently at the Intermediate Junior I level, and continues to train with Senior Iyengar teachers regularly. She recently spent a month studying with the Iyengar family in Pune, India, February 2014, and was fortunate to observe Mr. Iyengar teaching just before he died in August.
Robin was first introduced to yoga when she was a junior at St. Mary’s High School in Manhassat, Long Island. One day, Miss Lowinski (her English teacher) said, "Now girls, we are going to do yoga, so move aside your desks and take off your saddle shoes." Robin continued to practice yoga as she went on to become a professional modern dancer, and has taught dance and yoga for most of her adult life. She received a Masters in the Psycho-Social Study of Human Movement from Columbia University Teachers College in 1988. She began studying Iyengar Yoga at about the same time, but became hooked on it with teacher, Rodney Yee. Theresa Rowland and Joan White have been her primary teachers since 1994, and most recently, Brooke Myers, from the Iyengar Institute in NY.

*Alignment is a cornerstone of the
practice of Iyengar Yoga. One often
thinks of alignment in terms of the positioning of the body and its various
parts during the practice of asana (posture). The value of this aspect of
alignment in balancing and protecting the joints, muscles, organs, vessels,
and tissues of the body is well known to most people. What may be less well
known is the importance of alignment with respect to the flow of energy in
the body. ~ John Schumacher, Iyengar Yoga Teacher
