About Mary Obendorfer & Eddy Marks:
Mary & Eddy are Senior Iyengar teachers certified at the Advanced level. They teach worldwide as well as train and assess teachers for certification. For decades they studied with the Iyengars in India, living there for a year in 2003 and seven months in 2009. Guruji’s original and transformative approach to yoga inspires them to guide students with clarity and precision from the skin to the soul. They co-direct the BKS Iyengar Yoga Center of San Diego, which was established in 1979.
A trained exercise physiologist from UCLA, Eddy has taught yoga for cardiac rehabilitation as well as anatomy and physiology for yoga students. 4 decades of searching practice helps him to convey Guruji’s illuminating teachings with clarity, insight and progressive refinement.
At Geetaji’s request he wrote the book B.K.S. Iyengar: Archive Project 2007. He is co-writing a book Guruji called Hidden Wisdom of Iyengar Yoga.
Mary was one of the few people from around the world to attend the invitation only Back Bend intensive given directly by Mr. Iyengar. She also worked with Dr. Mary Schatz in India documenting the therapeutic yoga that Mr Iyengar is so famous for.
