Created by a group of Los Angeles based yoga teachers, the Luminaire family of products were inspired by personal experience and students' suggestions.

Randi Jo Greenberg discovered yoga in the mid 90's when she was traveling around the USA working in Retail Marketing for Levi Strauss and Co.  The practice of yoga had such a profound effect for her (mentally and physically) that she transformed her life, trading in Corporate America for a Yoga Mat and began teaching yoga full time in 1999.

RJ received her Yoga Teacher Training certificate in 1999 through the Nosara Institute - Omega Institute of Holistic Studies (Rhinebeck, NY) and more recently completed the Yoga Works Teacher Training Program (Santa Monica, CA) and the Anusara Teacher
Training at City Yoga (West Hollywood, CA).  She is a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance (RYT-200).  Randi Jo is featured in Larry Payne's (Yoga for Dummies) newest book (Yoga RX) due in store in Fall of 2002.

RJ currently, resides in Pacific Palisades, CA where she teaches Yoga and Pilates at a variety of locations in the Santa Monica area including Yoga Schools, Studios, Health Clubs, Spas, Corporations and privately.

Sue Elkind & Naime Jezzeny have been enthusiastically studying with John Friend & Dr. Douglas Brooks since 1998 and were the first Certified Anusara teachers in Los Angeles. Their dedication to the teachings have led them to recently move their family of two boys to Rochester New York to be closer to their teacher Douglas and to open an Anusara yoga center with top certified Anusara teachers Mitchel Bleier and Sianna Sherman.

Naime & Sue continue to lead teacher trainings and workshops in both Los Angeles and New York and continue to assist John and teach their own workshops nationally.

Sophie Garthoff  began teaching Yoga in 1998 at “Yoga Source” in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She initiated women’s classes there, as well as Yoga for children. She considers herself fortunate to have studied with Master teachers in a variety of traditions including Kundalini, Iyengar, and Astanga practices of yoga.

In 2000, Sophie returned to her native Los Angeles and has taught at various studios including “Yoga Time” in Beverly Hills and “Yoga Desa” in Topanga. Presently, she is focusing on working one on one with clients and is committed to using Yoga to benefit individual needs. This year she traveled throughout Southern India and studied with Kausthub and T.K.V. Desikachar at the “Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram”. Her work in India allowed her to focus on the therapeutic aspects of Yoga.

As a graduate student in Depth Psychology, Sophie is particularly interested in the psychological dimensions and applications of Yoga. She continues to follow her curiosity, to share what she finds along the way – and “oh, yeah, breathe!”
