It’s a familiar story: boy has back pain. Boy tries yoga. Boy falls in love with yoga in his first class! Really: head over heels--and heels over head--in love! That was in 1992 at the Sivananda Yoga Center in Chicago. Since then, Lane (the boy in question) has rarely missed a day of practice and has rolled out his mat in ashtanga classes, Iyengar studios, and the craziest of flow spaces. He believes firmly that no one tradition has a lock on the truth and that the best classes combine rigorous attention to alignment, creative sequencing, and lots and lots of sweat. When not in the yoga studio, Lane is a teacher and administrator at Northwestern.
