I have been to the Iyengar Yoga Institute in India, twice, for the month-long courses that are held there and felt honoured to be taught by the Iyengar family and to be among so many students who learned their yoga by the passing on of such great teachings.
We have to regularly attend classes and courses taught by our more senior teachers, many of whom return from the Institute in India with new insights and minor adjustments, although the basic postures do not change.
The programme of annual Professional Development Days are designed by the Iyengars and must be attended in order for teachers to use the Iyengar Yoga Certification Mark.
The Iyengar family – B.K.S. Iyengar, Geeta, his daughter and Prashant his son – are determined that yoga will be taught safely and with optimum benefit to each individual student.
I feel extremely fortunate to be Iyengar teaching yoga at Shrewsbury House. I live within walking distance and came to Adult Education yoga classes here over 20 years ago and have taught here for about 10 years. How lucky we are to have clean, warm, airy spaces in which to practice this ancient system of poses that bring harmony to mind, body and breath.
All my classes are suitable for beginners or those with more experience – you don’t have to book but can call me first,
