Mary Dunn, Yoga Instructor, Dies

Saw this article today. Mary Dunn was a famous and influential instructor on Iyengar Yoga, especially on the West Coast. It's not too often that we celebrate those who form a bridge between people and help us to learn from the wisdom of other cultures.
“We tend to cubbyhole the different parts of human experience,” she said in an interview in The New York Times in 1995. “ ‘Is it physical? Is it mental? Is it emotional?’ But here was a man teaching that all these parts are connected.”
Rest in peace.
