Her interest in yoga was sparked at an early age. After suffering numerous broken bones in her leg, ankle and foot from a horse racing accident in 1985, Ruth Ann turned to her yoga practice for relief and recovery. However, with the arthritic changes and degenerative condition of her ankle through the years, she had a Total Ankle Replacement in 2013.
She is an inspiration to all that meet her and proof that a yoga practice can help us to endure life challenges with equanimity and poise. Her knowledge gained from her personal physical journey and her background as a licensed massage therapist for over 25 years greatly enhances her ability as a yoga instructor.
In addition to her travels to Pune, India to study directly with the Iyengar family, she continues her studies with Senior Iyengar yoga teachers from around the country.
