I came to Heartwood Institute for the first time this past weekend for a mini immersion in Yoga Philosophy. It is an amazing place created with much love and care by teachers that are truly invested in providing the very best education to students continuing on the yogic path. Thank you Ginny, David and Denver, looking forward to seeing you all again for further studies.

Pauline
Pauline Dimitry has been a student and teacher of yoga for 45 years. Her teachers have included Donna Farhi, Judith Hanson Lasater, Roger Cole, Eric Schiffman, Rodney Yee, Angela Farmer, Elise Miller,Victor Van Kooten, Leslie Kaminoff and Francois Raoult.

This eclectic group of teachers has informed Pauline's personal approach to classic Hatha yoga,which is an underlying belief that yoga poses and breathing should be adapted to fit individual needs.
Rather than asking the student to conform to an ideal postural form, she tailors poses that are right for the student's body type, muscle strength and conditioning.Pauline has taught students of all ages, from junior high school to adults in their 80s.Early in her teaching career, she taught at a community college as an alternative to Phys Ed, at the YWCA, churches, continuing education and at a psychiatric ward.For the last 25 years, her interest has been primarily working with students over 50 with an emphasis on improving balance, range of motion, flexibility, increased lung capacity and relaxation of mind and body. In New York State, she has taught in senior and recreation centers, at a Chiropractic College and Chiropractic Clinic, and at the Empire State Senior Games.

Since moving to Sarasota, Florida, Pauline has developed a following of mostly older clients seeking to find new freedom through gentle movement, relaxation and clarity of mind.
