Iris Cohen began her yoga journey 19 years ago when a friend recommended yoga as an antidote to raising three boys and deadline magazine journalism. Her passion translated into extensive study with Elena Brower, Rodney Yee, Colleen Saidman and Ellen Saltonstall. 

She founded Be True Yoga studio in 2010 to create a nurturing space to access the transformational power of yoga, meditation and sustainable wellness. She now continues that mission teaching classes, leading retreats,  and themed workshops for organizations. 

Iris infuses her alignment-based classes with her love of language and music, incorporating her expanding knowledge of meditation and the therapeutic modality of ball work.
