Peter Ferko began practicing yoga more than 20 years ago at Alan Finger’s YogaWorks in Los Angeles. He studied there with Rod Stryker and Patricia Townsend. He studied meditation with Yogananda’s Self Realization Fellowship where he learned Kriya Yoga techniques. He sampled Iyengar and Ashtanga styles before landing back with Alan upon moving to New York in 1999. After decades of practice, he obtained the Yoga Alliance 500-Hour teaching certification from Be Yoga’s training program and now teaches both students and teacher trainees. Peter’s approach to yoga involves tuning out the voices that tell us what we can’t do physically and why we’re not “there yet” and tuning in to the inner yoga. We are perfect yogis as we practice the yoga that’s perfect for us. In addition to his yoga pursuits, Peter is a multi-media artist and brings creativity, imagery, and a sense of humor to his teaching. “Asana and pranayama are the ways to balance physical and subtle energy, meditation is a chance to fill with understanding, and life full of energy and understanding is just plain better.” -P.F.
