Meet Barrie Risman

by BarrieMeet Barrie RismanHello readers!I’m Barrie Risman and it’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance.I’m a longtime yoga teacher based in the Eastern Townships region of Southern Quebec. While I love living in Canada, I’m a native New Yorker at heart (read: I still don’t, and probably never will, consider a Montreal bagel a real bagel).I teach online classes, courses, and workshops for yoga teachers and continuing students. I’m also the author of Evolving Your Yoga: Ten Principles for Enlightened Practice, a guide for practitioners to integrate and expand the benefits of yoga on and off the mat.My background is in alignment-based asana. I’ve been a student of Iyengar Yoga for more than 20 years and I’m a certified Anusara Yoga teacher. I’m also a lifelong student of the wisdom traditions of yoga. I love and cherish all the streams of yoga philosophy, but the Nondual Tantric tradition has been my particular focus of study and practice for the past 27 years.Most of my work as a teacher these days revolves around helping students deepen their practice, whether through refining alignment technique or helping practitioners find authentic meaning and relevance in yogic wisdom. I like to think my teaching and writing provide fuel for the inner journey of yoga, bringing the practices and perspectives of yoga down to earth and into real life.It is an honor to be part of the YFHA team. I look forward to supporting you on your path!
