Welcome to the summer classes held in a private studio in the heart of Poundbury. You enter through the back gate into a beautiful tranquil garden and the world of yoga. Leave your worries behind, feel the unity of everything, relax and be taught by a fully qualified Iyengar Yoga teacher with many years experience.
A few places have become available on a Thursday morning so please do make contact with email or telephone. There needs to be reasonable level of fitness. Beginners are welcome and students are relaxed and very friendly as you can see.
It was a lovely Easter break and I hope you enjoyed it too. We were fortunate to visit the peace and quiet of Brownsea Island where red squirrels still live. This cheeky one was out of luck no food in the bag!
Welcome back to the new year and Spring Term at Poundbury Yoga Studio. I hope you are refreshed after the break and ready for class.
Unfortunately the sad news has arrived that Dr Geeta S. Iyengar, eldest daughter of B.K.S. Iyengar and the most senior teacher in the Iyengar Community, died peacefully on 16th December 2018, aged 74.
Geeta lived a simple life dedicated to yoga and was a mother figure to Iyengar yoga practitioners worldwide. Geeta started from a young age as her health was not good and yoga was recommended to her.
Geetaji visited the UK twice in 2002 and in 2009 to teach at the annual convention of Iyengar Yoga (UK) which was a memorable experience for those fortunate to attend. On one occasion I remember her saying never give up once you are a practitioner. This has come to mind often when there are obstacles.
Geeta will be greatly missed by all her students worldwide.
DORSET AND HAMPSHIRE IYENGAR YOGA will be remembering Geeta Iyengar on the National Iyengar Yoga Day Saturday 19th January 2019 at Trinity Methodist Church, Southbourne. This is a morning of free yoga classes for new beginners and regulars students. Further details on the DHIY website.
Have a good term, full of love, light and peace …..
