Zoreh Afsarzadeh has been teaching yoga since 1985. In 1999, she founded the High Desert Yoga studio in Albuquerque, where she continues to teach and co-direct the 200- and 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training Programs. Zoreh also teaches weekly asana classes for the general population and leads weekend workshops on a wide variety of topics in yoga and well-being. In addition, she offers private yoga sessions to help those with back, neck, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle issues become pain free through proper posture, alignment, and mindfulness.
Zoreh's upbringing in Iran started her on the path of Sufism, meditation, and spirituality. During her lifetime, she has studied numerous methodologies including Iyengar, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Siddha yoga, and that of the American Yoga College. Zoreh is passionate about yoga and exploring the heavenly spots in the world, so for more than 20 years, she has offered yoga and meditation retreats in inspiring locations such as Mexico, Thailand, India, Costa Rica, and Bali, as well as at various locations in New Mexico. Zoreh and her husband Charlie have created a beautiful outdoor studio, Yoga del Pacifico, on the beach in Troncones, Mexico, where she and other many well-known teachers regularly host retreats.
Zoreh's joyous personality and sense of humor endear her to her students with a teaching style that is both nurturing and fun, and her teaching combines a delicate knowledge of the body that allows a compassionate authentic expression of the postures to emerge
