Iyengar annual convention 2014
As a teacher I must follow and recommend strongly this Iyengar yoga Convention from 3-5 May with the special presence of Abhijata Sridhar Iyengar!
IY (UK) holds conventions every year with different guest teachers from around the world. Its aim is to bring together as many yoga practitioners as possible in to one place, so that the bonds of the Iyengar community are strengthened, old friends are met and new ones made and all can learn together.
The Convention will take place on 3rd, 4th and 5th May 2014 and will be led by BKS Iyengar’s grand-daughter, Abhijata Sridhar Iyengar.
ABHIJATA SRIDHAR IYENGAR is the grand-daughter of Yogacharya BKS Iyengar. She started seriously studying yoga from the young age of 16 directly under her maternal grandfather, Yogacharya BKS Iyengar, her aunt, Smt Geeta S Iyengar and uncle Shri Prashant Iyengar. She has now grown to be a very articulate teacher, and we are deeply honoured that she has agreed to lead our 2014 convention.
Abhijata is a Senior Teacher at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI), – the cradle of Iyengar yoga – located in Pune, India. She has a Master’s degree in Bioinformatics from University of Pune, and is now a full-time devoted student and teacher at RIMYI. She has accompanied Smt Geeta S Iyengar to International Yoga Conventions in UK, Australia, Germany and USA; travelled with Guruji to Russia and China, and has also conducted classes independently in France, Indonesia, Philippines, Spain, Belgium and Germany.
