Tony Briggs teaches yoga in a modern, humorous and hard-hitting way, without compromise or new-age veneer. He is a true teachers' teacher, providing the intimate yet demanding relationship for students to explore and expand. He encourages his students to tread the path of self-discovery with a cool head, a wide heart and a warm belly. Tony considers teaching as a creative act, one that begs for devotion, insight, spontaneity and leaps of confidence. Tony has been practicing and teaching yoga for nearly three decades. While his studies in both India and the U.S. include many years of Iyengar yoga, his teaching is also influenced by the practice of internal martial arts.

By excluding the dogmatic methodology found in most modern yoga traditions, Tony enables students to more personally integrate the information in order to embody the practice. Tony Briggs is the Director and principle teacher of The Art of Teaching at The Yoga Loft. Tony is also founder and director of Turtle Island Yoga in Marin County, where he offers ongoing public classes, workshops and retreats, as well as teaching internationally. He has also written for Yoga Journal.
