Please welcome the newest One Center Yoga teacher — Randy Loftis, a certified Iyengar instructor.
Randy has come home to North Carolina. Full of wanderlust as a young man, he headed to California in 1988 to make maps for the U.S. Department of Agriculture as a soil scientist.
Soon he discovered yoga and quickly realized his desire to teach. He spent many years studying with Senior Iyengar instructors in San Francisco, including Kathy Alef and Manouso Manos. He is a graduate of the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco’s (IYISF) Teacher Training Program and a Certified Iyengar Teacher. He taught yoga while living in Lake Tahoe and eventually moved to San Francisco to deepen his studies and teach weekly classes at IYISF. Randy served on the board of directors at IYISF and the Iyengar Yoga Association of Northern California, most recently serving as board president for these organizations.
“My joy in teaching comes from sharing what I have learned from my experiences in yoga. I also have a true appreciation for learning from my students as I see them progress along this shared path.”
Now as opportunity arises, Randy has moved back to Asheville with his fiancé Greta Kent-Stoll, an Ayurvedic practitioner. Randy is excited about teaching Iyengar yoga at One Center Yoga and being part of the yoga community.
