Colleen Saidman Christened “The First Lady of Yoga” by the New York Times, Colleen Saidman Yee was introduced to yoga more than 20 years ago when she was convinced by her roommate to attend a class. It didn’t take long for the former New York City model to commit to the practice. A graduate of Jivamukti’s 1998 teacher-training program, Colleen opened her own studio, Yoga Shanti, in Sag Harbor, in 1999. Colleen leads many retreats and teacher trainings both nationally and internationally, often with her husband, Rodney Yee.
