Myra K. Rucker is a yoga teacher, and yoga student, who firmly believes in the benefits of “sthira sukham asanam” (Yoga Sutras, II:46) – steady, joyful practice. Her introduction to yoga, practicing once a week between professional dancers and musicians (of various ages and fitness levels), quickly illustrated how yoga provides a path for anyone and everyone to be the best version of themselves.
A native Texan, Myra has studied with Robert Boustany, Rie Congelio, Paul Barrera, Meredith Bowerman, and Jasna Chavalo Abrams. She has also taken workshops with Ana Forrest, Bryan Kest, and Dianne Bondy. Immediately after completing CorePower Yoga’s 200-Hour Teacher Training, Myra began teaching “yoga parties” in people’s homes. She has also completed Level I and Level II Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Michelle Pietrzak-Wegner and Vinyasa Teacher Training with Seane Corn.
Myra’s teaching philosophy centers around the fact that smiling changes brain chemistry. She is also inspired by the idea that yoga (union) – and life – are like a poem, which, as Robert Frost said, “. . . begins in delight and ends in wisdom.”
Myra currently teaches the Monday Mindful Yoga class from 5:30-6:45pm.
