Colleen Duggan is a certified Iyengar teacher who has been studying yoga since the early 1990’s throughout Asia, Europe and U.S. She has been teaching locally in Camden and Islesboro since relocating here in 2001 to start a family.
Colleen is dedicated to the Iyengar method of yoga which focuses on alignment and precision in the poses. She became fully certified as an Iyengar teacher in 2010, a process that took over 6 years. The Iyengar certification is rare among yoga teachers as the training and testing is so rigorous and demanding, taking many years to complete.
Part of the Iyengar method is that all teachers continue as life long learners on the yoga path studying under more senior instructors, always deepening their understanding of yoga. As well as travelling to attend yoga workshops and trainings throughout the year, Colleen commutes regularly to Cambridge Massachusetts to study with her mentor, Patricia Walden. She also travels every other year to Pune, India to study directly with the Iyengar family for one or two months.
