With degrees in philosophy and comparative religion, Beryl has traveled extensively in India, has been teaching yoga for 33 years, and training yoga teachers as “spiritual revolutionaries” since 1980.
Beryl began teaching astanga yoga to a handful of adventuresome and ahead-of-their-time runners in New York City in 1981 at the prestigious New York Road Runners Club. She became the Wellness Director of the Club and slowly continued to grow the classes. She pioneered (along with husband Thom, a world class runner at the time, who joined Beryl as a teacher at the NYRRC from 1985 through 2001) the introduction of yoga to the traditional athletic community.
