Location: on Zoom, online, , United Kingdom

A very special weekend!  We are celebrating our 50th birthday this weekend and we are thrilled to announce our programme of celebrations!

On Friday 24th and Saturday 25th, we are thrilled that Jawahar will be teaching us online, and on Saturday 25th we’ll have a party at our home in Dukinfield to give us the opportunity to get together “in real life”.  On Sunday we are delighted that Abhijata has agreed to teach a special class online.  You can book each session individually, or members can take advantage of a £50 for 50 years price!

Jawahar Bangera has been BKS Iyengar’s pupil since 1969, and was one of the first pupils from Mumbai tasked by Guruji to teach yoga. Jawahar has accompanied Guruji on countless teaching tours around the world and has conducted a large number of yoga workshops himself in various countries.

He is a very experienced senior teacher, leading classes all over the world and at home in Mumbai where he is a director of the Iyengar Institute Yogashraya which was inaugurated by BKS Iyengar in 2002. Jawahar is also a trustee and driving force behind the Light on Yoga Research Trust (LOYRT), formed more than 35 years ago to promote the learning and practice of Yoga in the Iyengar method, including the publication of RIMIYI journal Yoga Rahasya.

His years of dedicated practice and study have helped make him a teacher who inspires us to move deeper into our understanding of Iyengar yoga.

The sessions will be suitable for all practitioners of Iyengar yoga.
