Graves, who was diagnosed with scoliosis in her early 50's, began yoga as a means to help her deal with this debilitating condition. She has studied with Mr. Iyengar 10 times at his retreat in Pune, India and continues by practicing daily and teaching three to four days a week. "I just love yoga," says Graves, "It breathes life into every inch of your body." .
