Barbara Dunsford

dunsford barbaraBarbara entered the 200 hour YogaLife Institute program in 2006 to deepen her yoga practice with philosophy, knowledge of body mechanics and community. Teaching was not in the picture until Lily Sibley, her teacher at Ocean Spirit Yoga, asked her to sub for her and the seed was planted.

With a respectful understanding and integration of yoga mind, body and spirit, she teaches a mindful practice of philosophy, breath, careful alignment and modifications for a balanced practice of safety, ease and centering. Her “come as you are” mode of teaching is rooted in the practice of “every time we come to our mats, we begin again”.

Barbara has taught in her native city of Lowell at Community Teamwork Inc., Sangha Yoga Collective, Yoga on Boarding House Park and Whistler Park, and the Community Family’s Alzheimer’s Center. She has taught at the Lowell Community Health Center for the past 9 years. Her daytime passion is being the Director of Development at Lowell House Inc., a 46 year non-profit addiction, recovery and residential center.

A treasure trove of yoga philosophy!

Our teachers, as well as our daily practice, serve to provide a "reminder" of what we already know in our hearts and souls to be true. The following writings reflect these reminders that we need practice and more practice, and a community that supports us in our path towards enlightenment.
