Norma Colón's passion is Iyengar Yoga. She has devoted her career to sharing it with others.

Norma has been teaching Yoga for nearly 38 years, in the tradition of B.K.S. Iyengar since 1989. Twenty seven years ago, Norma founded and incorporated Yoga Fit, now known as Yorkville Yoga, providing a full range of yoga classes and private instruction to Upper East Side New York City residents.
Norma's teaching style is a unique synthesis of nurturing support and strong encouragement. She inspires students to do more and better. Whether in private instruction or group classes, Norma caters to each student's individual needs. Every student receives one-on-one, hands-on, correctional assistance.
Norma has also provided prenatal yoga and yoga for special populations including people with MS and the deaf and hard-of-hearing.
Having taught group classes at numerous venues on Manhattan's Upper East Side, including Hunter College, Maryount Manhattan College, Classic Body Fitness, Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, Manhattan Body, and MonQi Fitness, Norma now has all her classes under one pristine, exquisite roof, The P.E. Club on East 75th Street (owned by Nedra Lopez and her husband Alex Matosov).
...
Norma has also taught classes for corporate clients including McCann-Erickson, New York Hospital, Tribeca Film Center, and NBC Television. She has taught for the New York City chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society. Her private clients have ranged from "ordinary" New Yorkers to fashion and film industry personalities.
A proud Latina from the South Bronx, Norma started taking yoga classes at local health clubs when she moved to Manhattan in the mid 1970s. When she moved to East 73rd Street in 1977, she discovered Serenity, a yoga center just a block away. In just two weeks, the classes cured the chronic neck and shoulder pain that had plagued her for years. Each class had immediate and residual physical and emotional benefits, putting her in touch with her body and emotions for the first time in her life.
In 1978 Norma took her first Iyengar Yoga class with Bostonian teachers who turned out to be the now world-famous, brilliant, Patricia Walden and Karin Stephan.
...
The next day, Norma was paralyzed with pain (every bone and muscle in her body hurt every time she moved). She tought she would never take an Iyengar class again.
In the ensuing years, Norma explored a diverse range of yoga methods-Sivananda, Alan Bateman, Kundalini, American Yoga with Eric Bealer (yoga for dancers), Yoga with Ideokenesis (while matriculated at Hunter College), Ashtanga (called "The Hard and the Soft" back then) with Beryl Bender-Berch, Bikram-not so hot at that time.
...
Whatever the method, Norma tried it.
She also took workshops on Bartenief Fundamentals and Introduction to Laban Movement Analysis, Ideokenesis with André Bernard, and Awareness through Movement-directly with Moishe Feldenkrais. She even took ballet classes, which she had longed for as a child growing up in the South Bronx.
In 1988 Norma took a workshop in Viniyoga (Vinyasa) with Gary Kraftsow.
...
It was another 10 years before Norma received her first teacher's certification from the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the U.S.
In the interim, Norma had earned certification from Serenity (1978), Alan Bateman (1981), Sivananda Yoga (1987), and World Yoga (1989).
...
Yoga inspired Norma to major in Human Movement at Hunter College. She completed two years of the curiculum and hopes to complete her degree one day.
Norma is a member in good standing of the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the U.S. and the Greater New York chapter and has served on the NYC board of directors. She has been in numerous classes with her beloved Guruji-B.K.S. Iyengar and plans to study at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Puna India in the near future.
Yoga is Norma Colón's passion. She plans on studying Iyengar Yoga and sharing her love of the method with others forever.
