Eddie Modestini

Eddie Modestini discovered yoga while searching for relief from severe back pain, and was able to heal himself from two slipped discs. He became certified in the Iyengar Yoga system in 1985, and has also studied Ashtanga Yoga with K. Pattabhi Jois. Eddie’s sharp eye for reading students’ bodies and his thorough study of anatomy, along with a deep interest in how the human body moves, allow him to interpret misalignments and bring people back to their center and to health. Eddie codirects Maya Yoga Studio in Maui, Hawaii, with his wife, Nicki Doane, and collaborated with her to create a series of Maya Yoga DVDs. mayayogastudio.com
