She has hosted seminars, workshops and taught classes all over the world and has spent the better part of the past decade traveling and teaching yoga in Asia, Australia, Europe, The United States, Canada and Mexico."It never ceases to amaze me that I have taught this practice to people all over the world and over and over again I have witnessed the power of human communication regardless of spoken language. My tool is the human body, I learn through my own movements and through working with others."

Read what students have said about Ida's workshops..."Ida Ripley's demonstration and question & answer session today was phenomenal.""Great workshop for beginners and experienced students! Ida's alignment corrections were easy to understand and student demos were great reinforcement. Lots of "Aha" moments as Ida focused on alignment and helped students work through postures""I learned so much from (Ida). She knows how to deal with each and every student's body...so touched by her knowledge and flexibility.""In addition to all that great instruction, you yourself were personally inspiring. Your beautifully executed expressions of the postures provided invaluable visual templates to keep in mind during my own poses. Most of all, your calm, grounded focus when moving into & holding each posture was amazing to see and now to emulate in my own practice." "That was an amazing experience! Thank you Ida for sharing your knowledge & insight. Your ability to tweak the slightest adjustment was incredible & your postures are gorgeous!""She has a way of explaining the human body that helped everyone understand, and didn't complicate things with technical terms. She used not only her own body, but most of us around her. It was great to see our questions answered with the examples of our bodies."
