Hugh has studied Iyengar Yoga since 1991 and began teaching in 1997. He has traveled to the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India for two extended stays in order to study with the Iyengar family. He began his studies with Mary Dunn and Manouso Manos. Since 2001, he has traveled regularly to California to study with Donald Moyer, the director of the Yoga Room in Berkeley.
Hugh offers this advice to students: “Examine why you are doing yoga; stay with it and don’t give up. Iyengar Yoga makes the practice of yoga experiential—physically, emotionally, and mentally.” Hugh describes his teaching style as patient, exacting, and humorous. “Do no harm. I aim to observe the student and teach according to what I see.”
