Zubin Shroff: Host
The multi-talented Zubin Shroff is a photographer, artist, author and yoga teacher. When Zubin was 12, he began practicing yoga by copying asanas from his mother, who had studied with B.S.K.Iyengar in Mumbai, India. Zubin trained under Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee, as well as studying with Richard Rosen and Mary Paffard. He also studied with Wataru Ohashi at the Ohashi Institute and is a certified in Ohashiatsu.
