Piper (IYT, E-RYT-500+ ) first became a student of Yoga in college at the University of Vermont in 1992, seeking the balancing and meditational aspects as a complement to academics, running, climbing, and skiing.
As a Psychology student, she completed her honors thesis in "Yoga as a Therapeutic Intervention" and embarked on a lifelong exploration into all aspects of Yoga. She received her Integrative Yoga Therapy (300 HR IYT) certification in 1995 and has been teaching full-time since 1996. With over 5,400 hours of training and 25 years of teaching experience, Piper brings to her classes a thorough understanding of alignment, and a well-rounded knowledge of the practice.
Piper's style of teaching is supportive and inviting; encouraging an exploration into the language of the body through sensations and the breath. She is known for her flowing sequences, nuanced cues, and offering accessible modifications and variations throughout the practice. Her continuous study into all aspects of Yoga has helped her to introduce innovative methods of teaching; creating a blend of traditional yogic practices with modern therapeutics.
As the owner of Burlington Yoga since 2001 and director of the Burlington Yoga Teacher Training since 2009, she is deeply devoted to this ancient practice and its profound transformational effects.
