Maty Ezraty is a prominent figure in the evolution of modern yoga. She was one of the first women to study Ashtanga Yoga intensively with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and also one of the original founders of YogaWorks, where she directed and shaped the YogaWorks Teacher Training program for more than 16 years and trained many of today’s leading yoga teachers. Maty’s practice–and consequently, her teaching–is steeped in both the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions. In addition to over 25 years of dedicated Ashtanga practice, Maty has also devoted more than 27 years studying with many senior Iyengar teachers, including Dona Holleman and Gabriella Giubilaro. Maty has also spent several years studying vipassana meditation at Spirit Rock and the Insight Meditation Society.
