In real life, Yoga Spy is Luci Yamamoto. I’m an Iyengar yoga student and teacher, blogger, writer, and editor. I started blogging to express my tangled thoughts on yoga (and on life in general).

Why Yoga Spy? I’m not undercover anymore, but I still relate to my “spy”moniker. Whether in grade school or in law school, in Berkeley or in Vancouver, I’ve always felt slightly removed from my surroundings—removed enough to be an outsider as well as an insider. As a spy, I try to observe and to question with objectivity.

Posts discuss wide-ranging topics, such as teaching trends, home practice, anatomy, and peak performance. Please feel free to comment, to ask questions, and to suggest post ideas.
