Dear yogis, yoginis
A very happy and healthy 2015!
Hope you all had a great time with family and friends during the last
festivities and managed to squeeze some yoga in between meals.
Last year was very busy and fulfilling for me.
I feel very blessed that the two yoga holidays I taught
were successful and I hope that all of you who attended had
a good time.
The Study Group of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali held at the
Iyengar Yoga Institute Maida Vale was also very well
attended and I feel that we all learned lots from each
other's comments and insights.
If there is interest to continue with our meetings in 2015,
please drop me a line to let me know so I can make arrangements to use the
IYI in Maida Vale.
Just when the weather in London starts to get too much to
bear, I will be returning to Goa with some of you who have
already booked your place. I’m doing what I love to do in a
place that we all liked.
Yoga, sun, sea!!!
In May I am going back to Mexico, Cancun this time, to
continue with the Teacher Training. I am very proud to say
that there are now more and more qualified Iyengar Yoga
teachers throughout Mexico.
My London teacher Richard Ward will be teaching a couple of
days to my Mexican students and to anyone else that can make
it to Cancun. His dates are 15th and 16th May 2015.
In September, we will be going back to Crete where they have
built a wonderful yoga space with all the yoga equipment and ropes. Peli has installed
a new roof over the yoga shala, so we don't have to run
from one to the other if rains.
David and Juliet have decided to retire and Peli will be
taking care of us.
In October 2015 I will be going back to Mexico for the second Teacher Training. session. Again I will be delighted to have Jawahar
teaching part of it.
The rest of the time I will continue with my classes in
London. I am happy to inform you yhat I am now teaching another class at the Iyengar Yoga Institute Maida
Vale on Mondays from 10am to 11:30
I hope to continue seeing you on your mat somewhere in the
The sad news!
On 20th of August 2014
Guruji Iyengar died.
He has left his mortal body, but his spirit and light
remain present in all of us.
The last words in his book "Light on Life" reflect his
generosity: "I have tried to share some of these lessons
with you. I do pray that my ending will be your beginning.
The great rewards and the countless blessings of a life
spent following the Inward Journey await you."
Rest in peace dear Guruji.
|Iyengar Yoga Holiday in Goa, India.
When you practice yoga in India it feels like the universe supports
you! Goa is spiritual and fun. Ashiyana Yoga Retreat is a beautiful
place, minutes away from the best beach in North Goa. Purify and cleanse
with organic food and holistic therapies. Sleep in a comfortable bed
and listen to the sound of the ocean. Stroll along white-sand beaches
with swaying coconut palms. Shop at the famous Anjuna market. Sip chai
at a beach shack while the sun sets over the
Arabian sea. Hire a scooter and explore colourful seaside villages,
Portuguese mansions, Hindu temples and lush spice plantations.
The focus, of course, is Yoga - on and off the
mat - to enhance your appreciation of all that is around you. We will practise yoga twice per day: the morning session (7.30 am – 9.30 am) we will be practising most of the asanas to strengthen the body and the evening session (5 pm – 6:30 pm) we will practise recuperative asanas and pranayama to deepen the rest of you. We will have a
yoga adventure in the mystical land of its birth and get to the
spiritual heart of the practice.
Yoga equipment will
be provided by the resort. There are three fully equipped
yoga shalas in the grounds.
The price for the week is £695 per
person, sharing or £895 for single accommodation, the same as last year!
