Bio: Marcela Clavijo

December 30, 2009

A core faculty member of the Iyengar Yoga Institute, Marcela came to yoga in the 70’s and began teaching in the 80’s. She has studied with the Iyengar Family in Pune, India. More recently, she trained on the Great Yoga Wall with Brian Legere, certified Iyengar Instructor and co-founder of the Great Yoga Wall.

Marcela became an ordained Tibetan Buddhist nun in the Sakya Tradition in 2003, and has done extended retreats in Nepal, and at Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia. She feels deep gratitude toward all her yoga teachers, including Mary Dunn and Manuoso Manos, as well as all her spiritual mentors, including the Dalai Lama, the Sakya Trizin, and Pema Chodron. The challenge of keeping a spiritual-based discipline relevant inspires her teaching, and she is grateful for this chance to share what she has been learning.
